They didn't do the colonoscopy because my mom has an irregular heartbeat. Great, now it's heart problems.

Thank you. The good news is that she's eating solid food now and loves what they're giving her. Pork chops and fresh green beans, chicken breasts and mashed potatoes and angle food cake for desdert. lol She has a heart cath tomorrow and we;ll go from there. They're putting her on new meds, too.

So she had to do the prep for nothing?


What is the heart cath for? Will it be permanent?

A heart catheterization is a test where they run a tube or scope up through your groin to your heart so they can see what's going on in there. Yeah, the colonoscopy prep was for nothing but at least it got her system cleaned out good. lol

They used to go through the groin but I just read where they go through an artery in your neck.

I had loose stool for a month before I fired old doctor and got new doctor whom I love! She is awesome. She sent me to a gastroenterologist and I got colonoscopy (the new barium smoothies...yes that is what they're called!...don't taste completely disgusting; still coats your mouth yuck!)....anyway turns out I just have ANOTHER symptom of my fybromyalgia....irritable bowel on top of pain in my arms, legs, back AND the headache that lasted 24/7 for 3yrs before they figured out it wasn't a migraine! Took 3 different neurologists all saying same thing: "take this at onset of headache and it will go away." They all gave me a different version of same family of migraine meds...everytime I took one, different muscle groups would freeze up...the last one made me feel like I was having a heart attack. And I am 36! I was going to ER from work, again, just about to call supervisor, when a friend gave me a Lyrica...6 hrs no headache in 3yrs. When I confessed to my doctor that I took that pill, she jumped up, threw her arms in the air and did a victory dance saying "i knew it was muscular!"
Doctors don't know everything, only the great ones will admit that, and sometimes a doctor will "know" something but won't get proof of it, so their hands are tied by laws...

And, sometimes a diagnosis is worse than no diagnosis because many healthcare workers don't believe it exists except in the minds of a few hundred thousand (and counting) women, well mostly women! Even my Pain Care Specialists don't want to believe it!

The thing is they don't know everything about medical. I had one doctor tell me that that's the reason why they say Doctor's practice medicine since they can't always know. He was the only one I knew who completly admitted that. I think this is why they do things like exploratory surgeries. Because they don't know. All they can do is try one thing and if it doesn't work try another.

I had one tell me I had hip and thigh pain because I am fat
-_- I know I am fat I own a mirror dude. I went to a physical therapist for an ankle injury and I had three evaluate me and say I had hip displasia and a leg length discrepency. It took a non doc to figure that one out. It's all just a game of guessing.

Exactly what I was getting at Shirley! Most doctors don't know what's going on and sometimes they can't see the forest for the trees. I am an LPN...licensed practical nurse..and I knew it wasn't migraine, but my first doctor figured I was just stressed between work and a new baby. She had me on 4mg of Klonopin...cousin of valium and xanax...and it was doing nothing for me. That's when I went doctor searching...my chiropracter that shared suite with the first doc whispered in exam room that I should check out Dr. Robin Miller...so I did.
