Just HOW much does your Doctor KNOW..!

This was written 2 years ago…but ws asked to post it again…..lol so hope you all enjoy my discomfort…lolol…for those who have read it before….forgive……XXX

I went for a check up yesterday….!!! and it really got me thinking….I know I shouldn’t do that ,as I am told so often that for me thats BAD…lol ……..
But you know we should “Think” a lot when it comes to our Doctors ‘advice’…..
we ‘question’ our car mechanic..right..? and ohh yes I know how difficult that can be….having taken my car in (before the Docs Appointment..) because I heard a ‘grinding’ coming from the front wheels…….I dropped my car off with the directions.. “now remember I want a detailed report Before you do anything OK..lol”
Then off to the Docs……ok so we got off on the wrong foot..my appointment was for 10am……I actually got to see him at 10.45am….so after explaining that MY time was also valuable and I had ‘things’ to do..he got down to business……he is usually very nice..lol …….”How are we today…”. my reply….”Well I am stressed because you kept me waiting..I have no idea how YOU are…”..lol..he then proceeded to take my BP
( blood pressure)……..” yes its up again…” he said…..” we have to get it down.”
WE..have to….? ” if you hadn’t kept me waiting for 45 minutes it would probably have been normal ” I said……………..”well its a worry” he replied……”are you worrying about it ” I asked……..”Yes” he said…………”OK ,then I shall leave it to you, no point in BOTH of us worrying is there…….”……I said….lol…………a blank look was returned…..
after a few more just as inane questions he said…”I think we should put you on some HRT.(Hormone Replacement Therapy)…..the ‘Patch’ should be ok for you….”
and he wrote the Rx………” This one you replace every week…..devide your ‘buttock into 4 and alternate the patch every week to a different spot..”……………NOW I thought I shall have some fun……..?……..”and what is this going to do” I asked………….” you know what this is for” he replied grinning….”its to replace the Hormones your body needs but is not making now…”…………………” ok……and just ‘where’ will these Hormones go….”…………..I asked………….”well…into your system….” …….”where in my ‘system …….will they know where to go..?”……….” of course they will know ” he said
“they will go where they are needed”……………” ok and how big are they” I asked…..
“oh you don’t need to worry, they are so small .they are microscopically small you can’t even see them…..”…………………” and they will make there way from my Butt all on their own………to where they are needed..” I said…….”yes ” he replied………..
” what happens if they get ‘lost’ on the way..’ I asked………….”Trisha,… dont worry it will be ok, they know where to go” he stated with that condescending look all Med Docs get………….I gave him back the same look as I said….” well thats a wide statement ti make……..what if they get side tracked and end up somewhere they shouldn’t be……….I am not exactly ‘little’ so there is a whole lot of body for those tiny things to travel around…………..and its a worry..that I will have all these tiny Hormones
running Rampant around my body………….the mind boggles at the damage they could do…….what if they end up around my pelvic region…? will I become a raging nymphomaniac…………..or worse ………if they make there way into my brain will I become engrossed in pornographic pictures or literature……….” …..he sat ,with a stunned look on his face………”TRISHA ….. I thought you were intelligent..” he stuttered
lol………….”I AM ” I replied…” but your asking me to unleash several thousand
Hormones into my system, and you cannot even give me a sensible answer to my questions…………….would you use them…” I asked………..”well , I dont need them”
he replied………….” and anyway Men use different medication to the ones we prescribe for ladies”…………..” OK ” I said………”just one last question………do these Hormones have instructions before they get put into the patch…”…………..
Handing me the prescription he smiled and said “OK…I shall see you in 2 weeks” as he steered me to the door…………………………….
And that was the end of that appointment…..BUT……..he had not answered my questions….and few Doctors do….but then again how many of you ASK questions…..?? it IS after all YOUR body that you are putting stuff into………when I return to get my car I shall question the mechanic in detail about my car and will then decide if i want him to do whatever it needs…….I will decide…….. not him…..lol
So … do you Question your Doctor before taking whatever he prescribes for you, or do you just ….. take it…because you trust that he knows what he’s doing……….WRONG…………….QUESTION and keep on asking questions……Doctors do NOt always know whats going to happen when they prescribe medication…….they trust the Pharmaceutical Companies…?????
BUT its YOUR body that is injesting the medication………….and its up to YOU..to decide ………………after being told what side effects there could be ….wether you wish to take that chance or not………………………….SORRY will not bring you back if it kills you
and trust me…IT CAN………..
HRT will not kill me………….and I use the patches…lololol
