Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
He listened to my heart and lungs and sent me home
Why did you tell him you were there?
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
I told him that my gi dr sent me yhere for vomiting blood and blood in stool. I told him last
Night i was made to have anal sex
he never even bothered at least to look at your anus?
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
He said he didnt think it was necessary
Amazing--you have unbelievably casual and somewhat incompetent ER docs there
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
Im worried about it. What is it from. Ehat do i do
At least let your GI doc take a look at your anus and rectum
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
Hes out of the office til Thursday. Do you think the thing last night is causing the blood
Probably. At least have him look at things on Thursday
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
Is it going to hurt
No but that isn't the point anyway
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
Its just that i hurts to use the bathroom so im assuming it will hurt to have someonesfinger up there
Enough on the discussion about this.
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
Last thing about this. Are you lying to me about it hurting so i go have it done? Is it going to be uncomfortable? What do i do if i have more blood
If done gently it won't hurt all that much but my point was whether or not it might hurt is not a good reason for not having it done. I don't know what to tell you if you have more blood because it would seem to be useless for you to go back to that ER
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
Do i go to a different er
I'd say yes
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
Why do you think he did it
He likes it I guess and he knows it bothers you
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
I shouldntvhave been deunk and it wouldnt have happened
Just one more reason to stay off the booze but since you've vowed never to let him back again, we don't have to worry about that

Do you think i should get examined tonight
Truth? You should have been examined yesterday
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
How come? Last night i felt so vulnerable that idk if i would have let a dr touch me
Oh, come on. Because I'd consider it an emergency. Now change the subject or I'll have to opt out

Sorry. Do you want ne yo go get looked at tonight
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
I think my deression is keeping me from going to work
No, depression may make it difficult to go to work but it isn't keeping you from doing so

I think my boss isnt going to be happy with me
Why?
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
Cuz i didnt go to work today
Did you call in? And why didn't you go to work?
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
I did call in. I didnt go because im sad, i didnt sleep last night, and it hurt to walk to i basically stayed in bed all day.
what did you tell your boss?
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
I told her i was sick and not coming in

Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
I dont know. I think i need to call my psychiatrist tomorrow
Why the I don't know? You should go in
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
Its not that easy
That's not a good reason
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
Im depressed. I dont care if i get fired
Still not a good reason
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
Sorry
That's not a good reason either
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
Why do you care if i go to work
You need the job and going to work is good therapy for your depression
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
I need help not a job
exactly what help are you hoping for?
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
Idk. Do you thnk i need inpatient help
If it gets to the point where you get fired because you don't go to work, absolutely
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
Im talking about like tomorrow or the next day
If you can't go to work tomorrow, then yes
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
Do you know of any places in mn to go to
The Mayo, or the U of MN or the eating disorder clinic you were thinking about
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
In case you didnt know im really struggling :(
I know you are and I care very much
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
How long do you think id need inpatient. And just so you know im not crazy
I think you need at least two weeks
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
Im afraid that if i dont get help im going to od on purpose
Then call your psychiatrist and tell her that
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
Do you believe me about
That?
I dont want to be put on a hold
I believe you but you can voluntarily commit yourself and you won't be on a hold
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
Do you think i need that? Be 100% honest here
100% honest answer
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
What is it about me that makes you say yes? If i went to work tomorrow would you still say yes
Why, when you ask me a specific question and I give you a simple straight answer, do you insist on arguing with me? If you do go to work then for now I won't say you need to be in inpatient treatment, but I've told you before and I still think that you really do need the inpatient treatment.
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
I wasnt trying to argue. I am sorry if it came off that way. What are your reason for saying i need inpatient
It is arguing--it's saying yes, but--it's not accepting a blunt statement and saying give me your reasons so I can argue against them. Bot***** *****ne here--pure and simple--you may be headed to doing what we can't talk about and it's much better to head it off at the pass before you do
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
Would you still talk to me if i seriously tried it
I couldn't if you told me you did--it would be breaking the rules.
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
But if i came back here after i did it
Then I could yes if you mean after you were in the hospital
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
Sometimes i wish i could just do it and fail at it and end up in the hospital. Because then it wouldnt be my choice to go
Well, I have to get to bed now--get back to me tomorrow and hopefully it'll be after you've gone to work
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
Can i ask you one last thing
Quickly, yes
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
If i told yoy my entire abdomen felt like it was on fire would you be concerned?
That's not a quick answer question and you knew it. Don't post anything after this. I can't examine you so I have no way of knowing if it's an emergency or not. I doubt it is so get to bed and get back to me tomorrow
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
I dont feel well
Can't you just tell me more and not say something as indefinite as that?
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
Sorry just forget it
OK
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
What do you want me to say
Something I could somehow respond to besides a one liner like you don't feel well
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
How long until my epigStric pain subsides? It hurts a lot like a 8/10
Since I don't know what it is I can't say. I would say that I'd be worried you might have a rectal perforation and that would indeed be an emergency so you really need to get checked out by somebody now
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
What are thevstmptoms of that
What you're having right now
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
I have
An appt with the NP at 1030. Whst do i tellher? That i had a litte blood in my stool
The whole nine yards and that you're worried about a rectal perforation and need an abdominal ct or at least abdominal x-rays
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
What do you think the likelyhood of it being a perforation. There wasnt a lot of blood
More than enough to get it checked out and there doesn't have to be any blood at all
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
Why cant you give me a percentage? People have consenual anal sex all the time and they dont get perforation? Wouldntbi be sick if i had one? How do they fix it
Stop right now. Either you tell all and get it checked out or you don't. Percentages don't mean anything if you happen to be one of the patients that has it. You are sick and you've got bad abdominal pain. That's all I need to be worried about it. To fix it usually means abdominal surgery
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
I was just asking
sometimes I have to treat you like a child that won't listen
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
You always treat me like a child. Sometimes i ask yoi questions cuz im scared
I give you the answer like this one and then you waffle with questions like can I give you a percentage. You need to be checked out now
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
Im just embarrassed to tell her that i let marty violate me. If i had a peforation wouldnt i not be able to go to the bathroom
See how you're waffling right now? You could still be having bowel movements with a perforation. If you want to take the risk that this isn't a perforation and not get the proper evaluation for it, fine, but if it is the faster it's treated the better
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
I told you earlier i have an appt at 1030. How much blood would you say was in the toilet
Probably about a teaspoons' worth
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
My epigastric pain hurtd worse than any other time i had ulcers
We're chatting again. Go get checked out
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
Theyre not going to do anythimg
Hopefully she will if you tell her the whole story. And if she didn't do a scan or at least x-rays, that could be considered negligence and grounds for malpractice
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
just a quick DRE and thats all shell do down there
Better than nothing but like I said, I'd do the proctoscope. A digital exam won't detect a perforation
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
I know this is a dumb question but how can a penis cause a perforation. And are you honestly concerned thay thats whar it could be
It still can tear the mucosa and I've seen it happen. And of course I'm worried--otherwise I wouldn't be spending all this time telling you to get it checked out. If you hadn't had any bleeding or pain I wouldn't be worried
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
Wont it heal up on its own
Possibly but it depends on the size of the perforation
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
Just so you know i hate this all. Dont really want someone touching me down there
I know but it really needs to be done
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
You saying that doesnt make it any easier
we're chatting again. Let's close the page, get checked out and let me know how it goes

Did a dre and said she dudnt feel
Amything. Ordered a FOB and cbc and urine and comprehensive panel
What did she thing about your abdominal pain and did you tell her about what happened?
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
I did tell her. She didnt say much abour the abdominal pain just that shes probably going to send me to see my gi dr. When i tried to go for thr FOB it made me pain worse
The FOB really isn't important--we already know you're bleeding down there.
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
Dont be mad at me! The NP sent me home and said shed call later
I'm not mad but she should have done more. Anyway--hopefully your GI will check things out. We really need to close the page though
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
Last thing. Why am i. Tender in my lower abdomen to palpation
Hard to say since she really didn't check it out. If not from the perforation it could be an ovarian cyst, diverticulitis, or an inflamed bladder
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
you still think it could be a perforation
until proved otherwise. Now please let's close the page

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
