sorry to hear that man...is there anything you can do legally?
i don't know, and that's not really not my style to do something like that...
During the past 8 years, I haven't had a legitimate reason to be pissed off at anybody about my condition, thinking it really was some sort of mystery and that it was nobody's fault - until yesterday, and I think it's a fairly good reason now...
D - you have my sympathies. I've been through the medical wringer myself, much worse in fact, so I know how you feel. If you ever want to talk feel free to PM me.
I can answer that: no. Unless they kill you, take the wrong body part, or leave a scalpel inside of you its pretty fucking hard to win a malpractice case. In Impolyt's case I'd have to imagine that the Dr. would cry several variables of what "looked" like Meniere's but actually wasn't, and then claim that his symptoms may have changed in the 4 years since he's been seen.
I'm alright now, bills are paid, nothing I can do about an incurable disease once it's done it's damage, really - such is life.
Would like to talk to that doctor again though, and make him feel bad and imply that he's ruined my life and that what has happened to me was preventable if he wasn't so incompetent - I do a hold a grudge against him, because these doctors in America do the rock star routine and make you feel like they're granting a privilege to allow you to speak to them in their fancy offices. Guy didn't help me at all and wasted my time and money, my hearing is ruined forever - had I been diagnosed properly back then (and now that I've read up on it more, I was showing the key symptoms back then form the get-go), I would've possibly been able to retain more of my hearing as it was still there up until 6 months ago.
Holy shit i_1. my condolences.
So what in the hell would you know about this?
I don't care if you goof off. I know most people do it, and it's between you and your boss, but do four people really have to walk down the hall, meet up outside of my office, and TALK LIKE THIS about purses and shoes?
Damn, man, I'm very sorry to hear this. Really terrible.
sorry about that, Man, that is very bad news
Terrible, impolyt. I'm very sorry.
At the very least I would know that you therefore cannot employ this method.
Imp, very sorry to learn this. It sucks.
That's awful impolyt - I'm sorry to hear this.
Rambo is right about the difficulty of proving malpractice - we got a taste of this back when we were dating and a simple outpatient procedure wound up as a four-month stay.
Going deaf sucks. I'm getting there myself, albeit slower.
I'm sorry man
Did mullet woman work there? Either way, this is just infuriating.
You're sort of crazy.
Wow! Just wow! I cannot begin to imagine how angry something like that would make me. You've every right to be very upset.
SF MC dudes i have no doubt
+1. very sorry to hear that imployt, i hope the road is not too difficult and that you get the best care available out there. i send my heartfelt wishes.
today is shaping up to be a real shit day.
Man, that's unfortunate. How much do you have left? Is your balance still ok?
Woke up late.
