I went to my third hand/arm Dr this last week because they all say the arm is so complex. I've found contractures on the hand, supposedly torn bicep, pinched nerve in ulna and my arm is growing back together again due to an old fire wounf from 12 years ago. I also noticed some scars are adhering to the tendons in lower forearm.
I'm a big hot mess. 😑
So finally got moved up food chain to supposed best dude in Houston.
His Jr comes in gives me onces over. Checks numbness, straightens those contractures, ( which hurt like heck) but now I'm straight if not weak.
But Dr god comes in and says he can't operate on me because I could kill his surgical staff cus I have hep c. I said I've been undetectable for 12 yrs, he says, sez you. How unprofessional. How hurtful.
Told him I d bring tests or he could test me himself, then he said, why should I put " pretty inscions on you" and have them go septic or not heal because you have lupus? I told its uctd. He was a jerk. Once I started crying , he looked at a neck ct I'd had done when I fell in may, and he sent me for that, order EMG, PT, and then "maybe" he would operate
He had told to get used to the pain and the loss of my old life. I cried and said not acceptable, I felt so helpless. Don't know why I m so afraid of upsetting these guys!
I don't want him touching me.
I've decided to do the MRI, and keep the pain guy. But I have a real lupus Dr in early December. I'll hang on.
It didn't help hubby lost his job two days before this. And my mom is full on building me to travel right now when all I can do is barely move
