Anyone for less BMB's?
Message was edited by: Beverly. If there is anyway for CML patient to have less pain I am for it! Any patient! I have a neighbor age 86 was told he needed a bone marrow biopsy because of a slight blood issue. For one thing he said no! He is so frail it most likely have broken his hip. He is on deaths door yet a Dr. Wanted to make money off him,put him through all that pain. Not all Dr.s are for the patient. If you can't afford a test like that and are told by another Dr. it isn't a must you can say no. Patients rights. Just saying. I now have gone off Sprycel as 2 plural infusions in a month is 2 to many for me. I had 1 litter of fluid removed and it came right back. I've told my Dr. I will not get another tap and I'm going of Sprycel. I did get a rash prior to the fluid problems. Was miss diagnosed with shingles put on shingles medicine. My new Dr. Said its not shingles as I have it again. Pulsating red blotches. Now I am questioning did the shingles medicine help cause the fluid? I spoke to a lawyer today and was told to report the fired MD for negligence as she was the one who sent me to my first blood Dr. And she never followed up on that. I had to remind her I had CML. I was afraid to take the shingles drug with Sprycel she dismissed it all. My Dr. Say she should have at least done an X-ray when I saw her late January. I told her I had been to an ER 5 weeks prior x ray bronchitis .. She never followed up with my oncologist ! I am now reporting her to the medical board per a lawyers advice. She sent me to collections over a $58.00 bill I refuse to pay. Not all Drs. Care about patients rights.
