    Doctors are useless

    in many cases. I've gone through many since my injury, and they've helped nothing. Pain relief? Hell, no. Treat my scoliosis? No - apparently I'm not as curved as some people, so the negative impact it has on my life is immaterial. The hole in my cord? The MRI says nothing is changing, so the symptoms of a syrinx I have are disregarded.

    Isn't life grand?

    In a private system, it's all about money. My uncle put his son through medical school for over a decade. Why? My uncle will readily admit that it's all about money. The more courses you take, the more you're worth.

    Keep in mind, my uncle put his son through medical school and has dated a nurse for over 20 years, yet hates the medical industry.

      And being from MD, you've probably been to one of THE best hospitals in the nation yes?

      Some doctors just to want to consider anything but what they have been taught.
      And the truth shall set you free.

        sadly it's like a huge guessing game and many docs i've come across are completely satisfied with the bare minimum. My previous urologist laughed in my face when after doing research for a bladder issue i was having, i suggested a treatment he was sure "wouldn't work". It's been the key to my bladder functioning better. It's terrible that I feel like i must go through med school to diagnose and treat my own problems!
        Courage, it would seem, is nothing less than the power to overcome danger, misfortune, fear, injustice, while continuing to affirm inwardly that life with all its sorrows is good; that everything is meaningful even if in a sense beyond our understanding; and that there is always tomorrow.

          I have to say that I have been lucky enough to have a couple of very good doctor's who actually listened to what I said. When I first met my psysiatrist he came right out and said "you're the expert on your SCI, I am just here to try to help." Pretty amazing and humble words from someone well known in his field.

            When I could tolerate the ride in my earlier injured years, I went to Hopkins, University of MD, and a bunch of other hospitals. All useless.

                ok first off I have not had many good experiences with Doctors...not to say i have had none either..when I was young 12years old and had pain in my leg the doctor , after me going back a few times , told my mom to take me to a child therapist because their was nothing wrong with me....less than a year later and a new doctor I was told I had grade 4 spondylothesis with a trapped nerve and would not walk in a month with out surgery..3 surgeries and a lot of pain later...I find it difficult to trust doctors after that ...that all being said they are just people with good days bad days and as much as they are not suppose to let things alter their focus .. they are people with emotions and lives away from us in pain...I feel like too many doctors either make light of what they are told because consider what they are told in total by people each day ..or they don't know but instead of sending us on to someone who does sends us on our way with their best guess..and last but not least have tunnel vision and don't think out side of the box of what they have been taught..bedside manner and speaking to people with compassion well this is either there or it is not.. frustrating and not of much comfort to us in pain and dealing 24/7 but then are we not becoming good at dealing with the harsh reality ?? We are all just human

                  You and I are lucky to have found good doctors who care.

                  After years of being misdiagnosed by my primary, I found a new one who is a general practitioner. She investigated my concerns like Sherlock Holmes! She never dismissed my symptoms to aging, like the internal medicine primary did. (Heck! I was only in my late 40s/early 50s at the time.) She listens, does the research, learns from me, too. Isn't that what doctoring is all about? I have the same relationship with my rehab doctor. I love them both!

                    I have also found a GP/ family doctor to be my best friend in an emergency or many times better than my specialist who are scattered around the state (Univ-Miami/Orlando). It has taken 28 years to find this group I use now and it still need some culling. lol

                    Have a Happy New Year !

                      My GP is great, but he can't straighten my spine, collapse the hole in my cord, or relieve my pains.

                        Best way for healing WHAT? Are you paralyzed? Ho are you going to exercise paralyzed limbs? I'd love to hear your system.

                        If you're not paralyzed you probably don't have any business in this thread. If you are, and have healed yourself by exercising at home on a daily basis, please let us in on the secret.

                        You could also fill out your profile, then I wouldn't ask you rude questions.

                          ummm...I'm not paralized, but I've learned a lot of helpful and insightful information. I do have CP from my neck to my feet.....electric shots, very intense crushing, skin that's "sunburned and ground with broken glass". Also get to experience bladder issues, total loss of SF....and not to forget...the copius amounts of drugs that only, at best, take the edge off. Oh...I am able to use a walker....for about 100 yards tops. So, I'm not paralized, and I do consider myself one of the fortunate ones. You're one of the ones whose posts I've appreciated here at carecure.
