Fuck Doctors

I saw the gastroenterologist today.  I don't even want to go into why she sucked.  It's the same exact story as every other doctor story I have.  "You don't fit in my box and there's no research concluding that what you say is true; what do you want from me?"

You'd think a statement like "when I eat certain foods my crotch hurts" would send up a red flag for ANY doctor, let alone someone who studies digestion.

But no, this is seriously how it is for them: if there's nothing in the medical canon supporting what you say, it's irrelevant information.  Possibly you're imagining it.

FUCK. DOCTORS.

Seriously, omigod, fuck them.  Medicine is an amazing thing but the people who do it can be such wastes of space.

She gave me a prescription for Bentyl, which is used to treat IBS.  I filled only part of the prescription...curious, will probably try it but doubt I'll keep using it...my IBS itself ain't so bad anymore...on the other hand if it's the IBS cramping that's paining me, maybe it will work...but if it is WHY HASN'T ANYONE FIGURED THAT OUT YET.

Really, fuck everything.  I think I know what to do about my vulvodynia: eat well and wait.  But OH GOD I don't want to wait forever....it seems so fucking absurd!  It's like a fucking allegory, CROTCH PAIN.

  1. I'm so sorry you had to go through this BS with yet another doctor. You would think there was someone, somewhere that would say "I could get famous if I figure this out" and help us.

  2. I am so sorry that you had to go through that! I am frustrated for you. I despise the fact that doctors are so reluctant to think "outside of the box".

    Hang in there. If there is no harm in trying the meds, I would try them. Hopefully you can get some relief.

  4. People like you are why our medical system wastes so much money, chasing after every little problem. Just deal with it.

  5. I think only people that have never been through this can just say "just deal with it" or "you must be crazy". If they don't want to read what we have to say then go the hell away but I am happy that there is a blog like yours that helps me realize that I am not the only one with these problems. And you are so open with it and I love that. I am a nurse and I totally agree with doctors not seeing outside of the box. Hopefully someday there will be people that will specialize in these problems that can actually give us some help in some way. Good luck with the long search.

  6. Thanks Lora & Kim!!!!

    And thanks Angie. I'm glad my blog has helped you. I'm so sorry you have to deal with this too, though. Here's to someday figuring it out!

    As for Anonymous, don't worry about him/her/it. Looks like it was a random hit from google, read that one post and decided to poop on me without context. People rock :)

  7. Doctors are useless. I tried suggesting the possibility that my cystitis is related to what I eat and he just said 'I highly doubt it' and wouldn't hear any more about it. They're never willing to listen to anything different, which is why so many things haven't been cured yet.

  8. Stef, right on. That is criminal as far as SCIENCE is concerned. WHY ARE DOCTORS NOT SCIENTISTS?

    I'm going to see a naturopath soon because I am so done with doctors for vvd/IC. She may not know as much medical stuff, but I KNOW she will listen and believe me.
