I dunno what it is.. Guys wish me luck...
3 hours later and they tell me I could have an internal tear but they don't know and that I should have a follow up with my Doctor Monday... So all they can do is give me a blood test monday. The doctor was not too helpful, I assume he thinks its a tear because he gave me RX for stool softener and said take this for a month.
So what prompted you to go to the hospital?
If it involves horses and a website I beg you - spare us the details.
In fact, if details are not forth coming I will assume it is the horse and website thing.
Seriously, the doctor says to you, 'Hey you broke your insides! Go home and sleep it off!'.... that is weird.
IF you're not happy with what the Dr. told you, go get a second opinion... if not for me then for yourself.
So what...you have a medical condition that's serious enough or scary enough to warrant an ER visit but before walking out the door, you think...oh...I need to make a post?? Ya right.
Well I was drunk and I have not slept all night. I just got up about an hour ago. It was scary enough to warrant ER but its not like I was in pain and time didn't matter. So yes I made a post before...
The doctor didn't say anything, he just said do a blood test and go to your doctor Monday. When I asked him he just said it could be a tear but he doesn't really know. When I talked to the nurse it sounded like they think its an internal hemroid. I picked up a keg last night by my self so...
What can I do on the weekend? They just gave me a paper saying if I started throwing up or having pain come back to the ER. Otherwise this is something for me and my doctor to handle. I just don't want to wait forever to get tests. Is there anywhere I can go besides the ER to get tests done?
Well if I were you I'd go to your primary care doctor Monday and have him/her look you over and then refer you to some specialist.
What about walk in care on sunday? Would that work?
I wouldn't know about Urgent Care and them sending you to someone else. I believe Urgent Care will just
A) Treat and Release you
B) Transport you to the ER
I'd personally wait until Monday and go talk to your primary care Dr, ask him to send you to a specialist, and take it from there.
Thats the thing. I have to wait until Monday to just make an appoitment, which means more then likely I will end up waiting an entire week until they can get me in. The health system is bullshit.
I guess Im going to bleed to death.
