I dont know why they sent you here

I dont know why they did either.

I had an appt with a specialist..and this is just one thing that was said to me.

He was very very nice and listened... but couldnt offer me anything more than what the Dr referring me to him has... he was a bit puzzled as to the reasons why I was sent to see him. This is a bit frustrating because the drive to the office and home caused me a huge PFD flare up...another setback.. and bedbound yet again. PFD flares are only relieved by PT. Frustrating, because I did sort of hope, maybe there was a slim change he would be able to offer something that could help me.

I guess it is good that I went to the appt- now I know...otherwise I would have always wondered..well what if..

this is about the third time a Dr has come right out and said 'I dont know why they sent you here'

Sometimes it is tough not to give up hope.. when it seems even the Dr treating you dont really know all that much..or if they do they arent all in agreement on the cause or the treatment.

I know what has helped me...I know what hasnt. I would hope that to some Dr out there this will mean something.

  1. It is so frustrating when the people who are supoposed to help you just end up making you feel worse and discouraged. Keep trucking, you will find a caring a supportive doctor. It took me a while, but I have finally found some great doctors who are really trying to help me. Good luck!
