Ok, Now I'm going postal.
Just got back from the local vascular surgeon's office.
As soon as the dr. walked in I knew it wasn't gonna be good. He didn
t look me in the eye.
So he began to explain to me why I have purple painful legs/feet. (Don't think I didn't do everything I could to make them look the most purplish they could). Well I let him go on about arterial spasm. Then I whipped out my paperwork and said "I think this is what is wrong with me". He held the paperwork and then gave it back. I then gave it back to him. He kept talking about arteries and I kept saying "My arteries are fine"
He then asked what my former occupation was and when I said I am/was a respiratory therapist he snickered. I did come across as a know it all. He said that this is all way too new and it all has to be done in a study. And ballsy me said "I don't want you to do a study, I want you to do me"
At this point he wheeled himself across the room with his back to the wall. So I grabbed the paperwork cuz I knew he was just gonna chuck it once I left. I figured I might as well take it so I don't waste ink.
I put my shoes back on, and was getting ready to go. And as a last ditch effort on his part he said I could go and have a doppler on my jugs. ("but they would probably look normal anyways")
He then took the sheet which were Simka's instructions on how to scan.
He said that his xray tech would like to read about it. Well I am happy for the xray tech.
The craziest part is, I don't feel like a fool. I will get this done.
Probably did help me that I watched Irishbear 76's latest video from today.
