Sorry...I just don't trust them. If it's just a doctor you see once or twice a year but you have relevant history you have to remind the doctor becuase god forbid doctors actually look through your chart to be up to speed before seeing you. :rolleyes: I have to see all the doctors at my OB/GYN office. Each time, I won't see the same doctor for consecutive visits so I have to bring the current doctor up to speed. It a pain in the arse!

Any way...so I've had a few complications during this pregnancy. I've just had my 9th ultrasound (something like that) and have yet another one scheduled for next week. They say they are concerned and just want to keep an eye on this or that but will never just say what the hell their concern is! :mad: grrrr! Like, they'll say your "blah blah blah was high or abnormal" in some technical/medical terms and I am like well, wtf does that mean exactly? what is the possible implication for me or the baby. then it's like they just want to keep me calm by saying...well, don't worry about anything, we're just going to keep an eye on this or that. This does not help at all. Now I am more worried than ever. I can take it, just explain it to me and I'll deal with it. grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr! :mad:
Just to clarify there is definitely something wrong, they have said so they gave me some technical term for the couple of things that the ultrasound showed. When i asked for them to tell me what these things mean and what could happen as a result of these things, they beat around the bush and didn't tell me.
Instead, they just ordered MORE tests and said we'll monitor it.

Not to mention that I have to have all these damn tests. I have these long ass lists of things I have to do for Monday's and Wednesday's appointment so the tests will be accurate.
Wow, you are so naive. They just want to make as many tests, procedures, etc. as possible, to get as much money off your insurance.
In this way dostors are just as bad as lawyers.

I think many doctors are quick to test you for stuff. I know my general practioner (regular doctor) likes to run tests any time I have any sort of complaint (concern). I really don't care about that aspect since I am not the one paying. This is different though. I know something is wrong with the pregnancy so I don't have a problem with the testing. My problem is with trying to get an answer from these people!

you should really insist on them explaining everything -- always triple check everything -- it won't hurt to ask; if some doctor gets annoyed, that's his/her problem -- they get paid extremely well to do their job

thats right


I have had a condition for 11 years I have been going to Great ormand street hospital for about 7 years. This is ment to be one of the best. The doctors know **** all. I had a broken part of my hip on an x-ray, and I didnt know until 2 years later when my mum found out. I love my mum, she is AMAZING. Without her Id be nowhere. She does SOOO much research into my condition its incredible. She actually does know more about my condition then they do. They havent made a diagnosis in 11 years! Well they have.. but they change their minds. My mum knows more than all of them.
My mum finds amazing stuff out on the internet. The doctors are saying about how ( I have a bone condition ) It should be ok because Im going through puberty or whatever, or adolescence, that it should be ok because my bones will be getting stronger. This turns out to be probabhly wrong according to an article my mum found. Seriously I have the same problem, my mum has to explain my condition to new doctors etc. My mum could be trusted way more with treating me. Apparently a doctor would have to read 19 articles a day to keep up to date. I should Imagine my mums the most up to date, or near.

Nautilus has it right. Don't take any **** from 'em, Fiesty. :mad:

This is you and your baby and that's what they're getting that stupidly fat paycheck for.....make 'em break it down.


PS....I ain't too fond of Doctor's myself, so I know where you're comin' from.

luckily i am intelligent and do know how to question my doctors. i do trust them, i just get pissed off when they won't bother to tell me wtf is going on.

i didn't say this in my earlier post, but you are ignorant if you trust all doctors and just assume they know what they are talking about. i was really sick at one time and none of the doctors could agree on what the problem was. i usually am one to be a pain in the butt. if i have something even remotely serious, i always get a second opinion. i have been misdiagnosed and thus received incorrect treatment way too often. doctor's DO make mistakes.

however, i DO trust that my current group of doctors know their **** otherwise i would not still be with them.

i don't believe there is some conspiracy. i just hate being in the dark. clearly they suspect someting and despite how many times i have asked for them to tell me, they have not be forth coming.

i do plan on getting some answers Monday though.
i will show them feisty times 10. lol!


plus, people (vers, BB, and El T) i would appreciate some support rather than ridicule. i'm going through a tough enough time right now. thanks. :rolleyes:

i dont trust all doctors


when i broke my leg playin football i got told i could walk on it after 4 weeks , when i couldnt i got told it was my fault etc, when more tests were done it added more to how long it would take to heal by me tryin to walk on it


im not ignorant at all but you make it sound as if everyone in the world is against you and doctors dont wanna tell you if there might be a problem ith your baby

oh an if you have a problem :: Just Ask :D

no, what i think is that i have a condition already, which is pregnancy induced. it causes my blood pressure to be high. i think they are afraid to tell me or get me worried because it is dangerous to have high blood pressure when pregnant and they don't want it to et any worse. i get that. my problem is i will have high blood pressure any way just by worrying about the unknown. if they at least told me what is up, i would deal with it and worry less. i suspect that my imagined problems are worse than they really are so they should just tell me.


i guess i was kinda expecting a different reaction from this thread. i guess i really need to remind myself that men and women think completely differently.

I had a doctor like that, lazy and wouldn't read the chart. The first time I saw him he asked me all about my diagnosis. I answeared and said, "well actually its all in the chart rather in case I forgot something."
He picks up my chart looks at the first page for like two seconds and starts questioning me again. Now Im getting pissed. So I go "Hey, your going to have to read the chart. There's a reason somebody typed it up."
So every subsiquent visit he would ask me something stupid he should already know. So my only reply afterwards was "I dont know you'll have to look it up." He knew I was ****ing with him, but finally he learned and would sit down, read my chart, then talk to me.

Hospitals, doctors, and private practices are only interested in money. I will not go to the doctor or even consider it unless I am in a very bad way. Injuries or certain death type of situations. If you're sick it is one of the worst ideas you can have. Drug companies pay hospitals and doctors well to peddle their drugs when uncescesary in order to gain more profits.

You'll be alrite Fiesty. Try not to let those docs stress u out more than u are.

Maybe they dont want to tell u what they think is going on because as somone said already, they dont know how u will react to potentially bad news.
Im sure some patients freak out.

I would have thought if it was anything serious they would let u know so u could prepare urself?

You'll be fine, the baby will be fine, and then, most importantly, u can finally change ur sig! :D ;)

A friend of mine had been bothered by pains in abdominal area, and for 4 years doctors who examined the friend were saying that nothing seemed wrong and that there was nothing to worry about it. When the friend had finally started to breath with severe problems, the friend decided to go for an examination to a different hospital. They found a huge cancer in the friend's abdominal area. It was basically a terminal, very late stage, with a couple of month of life left. There was a surgery followed by a prolonged chemotherapy. By miracle, by God's will, against all the odds, the friend had survived. I pray that everything will be well in the future with the friend, and that there will be no remission.

Clearly, some doctors helped save life in this case, and others were harmful, and should not really be practicing at all.

I hate going to the DR's as well. I have to be damn near dead or in pain so bad that I would rather hack off a limb than deal with it. But they, for some reason, don't beat around the bush with me. I give them that attitude that I will eat their heart if they don't tell me exactly what's wrong in lamens terms. I also want to know how we're gonna' fix it. And they better not say "I don't know". If I'm gonna' die then tell me. I am a big boy, I can handle it.

Really, you just gotta' go in there with that "Don't bull **** me" attitude. Tell them straight up that your not here to be lied to or played with.

i know that i have three conditions/complications that they are concerned about but are monitoring. so i am okay with that but they mentioned 2 new things on Wednesday. They gave me some medical term and that is about it. I was not seeing my regular doctor so we we're familiar with each other. i kept asking her what these things were in laymans terms or what were the implications of these things (would possible outcomes, etc.) and she kept dodging me saying, well, let's just keep an eye on it. come back Monday. I asked like 10 times and I was so pissed that tears came to my eyes, which means I was pissed as hell. so i went to the woman who was scheduling and she went to schedule me with that same doctor for Monday and I took it all out on her. Poor thing. I was like sorry, no, that will not happen. I WILL see my regular doctor on Monday so I can get some real F'ing answers. I am not leaving here until you work that out. I don't ever want to see that ***** again (the doctor I had just seen). poor woman just looked at me like, "um..okay...hey, i just work here". So i am just trying to be calm until Monday and then question the hell outta my doctor. no way i am leaving without answers.

Yeah, that would have pissed me off too. You should have blown up on that Doctor. You should have said that you were'nt leaving that office until she explained everything to you in english and what you needed to do at home to make the situation better or help it the best way you can. I think they make like to make you feel dumb.

Thankfully I ain't been horribly sick since 06. I only **** wit goin to the doc if I'm in serious ****. I was big into sports as a kid but luckily never got injured.
