Namaste an greetinss frum Thee Purrfect Pad. Mee assuress you much iss not purrfect here once again….Have you efurr noticed how yur Life iss goin along calm an fingss are nice an the all of a sudden! WHAM!!! Sumfing bad happenss an then sumfing else an then it a cass-cade outta control??? Well that has happened here fur mee & then LadyMum yet again……
Mee started ternin mee nose uppy at thee Performatrim Beef that iss mixed inn with mee G-I wet food. So LadyMum an Mumma Mary-Ellen went huntin fur sumfin new butt not high inn protein an fat. An LadyMum came thru fur me!!! Mee iss now eatin Ultra Beef Stew:Iss made bye same company butt iss way tastey-er (iss that even a werd?) Mew mew mew…. So that problem solved. Then there was mee Hypurractivity that reeterned (fur no reason). So LadyMum bott mee sum more Bach’ss an gave it to mee efurry day; sumtimess twice a day:Soon as mee seess thee bottull mee calmss down!! So with 2 or 3 walkss purr day an LOTSS of Condo time an Bach’ss mee iss back on track beehavour-wise. It was during thee Hypurr timess that LadyMum started pickin mee uppy an cuddlin mee an givin mee so-o many *kissesss*; seereusslee smothered inn *kissesss* an mee
likess, no LUVSS this berry much. So much that mee now snugullss on couch with LadyMum efurry nite an it iss LUVLEY!!! (Wee have fotoss’ but cammyra not uppyloadin, sorry…)
So fingss fur mee are purrfect….an then it was LadyMum’ss tern fur sumfin bad to happen to her. Shee sent an email to many of youss’ about thee Speshellist an what hee did (or did not do) to her. Fur those of youss who not know what happened mee will let LadyMum tell thee story. Go ahead LadyMum:
Hi Everyone: As most of you know, I receive Lidocaine injections 4 times a year. I have between 8-11 injections per visit. This is only 1% Xylocaine/Lidocaine so it is a VERY small dosage. I had a lot of ‘flare-ups’ after the March injections & the June injections. Sine last December Dr. M. has been saying I could not have them for much longer due to side effects such as, no proven long term efficacy with Lidocaine. And of course, there I was having so much trouble walking (using walker) & in so much pain. So when I went to see Dr. M. this past Thursday I was in dire straits wondering what was going on. Long story short; Dr. M. LIED to me & gave me Saline Solution instead of Lidocaine WITHOUT my Knowledge or Permission!!!! And guess what? He can legally do that because of a Medical loophole I knew NOTHING about. Let me say, I suspect I was given Saline in March also because I have been in such pain since then….he admitted to June only. He says he has read ‘articles’ revoking the use of Lidocaine as a pain deterrent but had nothing to show me. He knows I was in Medical profession so there was NO reason to pull a fast one on me. He then said there ‘could be’ scar tissue at injection sites & I really let into him. I was reduced to tears realizing he had lied right to my face after 11+ years of being my Specialist. I almost stormed out….thankfully REASON prevailed & I stood my ground. After 15-20 minutes of heated discussion & tears (on both sides); Dr. M. agreed to give me 8 Lidocaine injections. I asked him for proof so that he did not pull a ‘fast one’ again. Once I was changed into a gown, he returned with the needle & this:So at least I had some visible proof he was using the correct medication. And I had an epiphany once the 8 injections were completed. When I get Lidocaine there is far LESS pain. D’UH, of course because it is a numbing agent so once it starts going into my body it numbs the injection site; whereas the Saline Solution burns & stings & hurts even after the needle is withdrawn!!! How this escaped me I do not know. I had become complacent; believing what Dr. M. was saying about the lack of efficacy. I spoke with my ‘Bestie’ yesterday who is a Medical person & she told me there is a Medical-Legal loophole that Doctors can use to cover up what they are doing. And then I had the 2nd epiphany!!! Until this year Dr. M. always asked me if I wanted ‘more Lidocaine injections’. He said he has to ask because of medical-legal reasons. I always agreed. Thinking back, I realized that in March & June he asked me “Do you want more injections?” See the difference?? He did not say “Lidocaine injections” & of course I assumed he was going to give me Lidocaine so when I said “Yes” he then could legally substitute Saline Solution for Lidocaine & get away with it! I am utterly & totally devastated & dejected. There is no one else locally who can do the injections. I am too unwell to travel 3 1/2 hours each way for treatment in London. I came home Thursday in quite a state complete with high BP & raging headache. I spent most of after noon crying. I had a complete emotional meltdown in public that night. Except for walking the ‘Littul Purrince’; I am staying inside my place. I just can not deal with anymore deception from anyone. I have an appointment in December & I am going back with an Ultimatum> I will agree to only having Lidocaine injections 3 times a year (every 4 months) with the agreement that Dr. M. gives me ONLY Lidocaine those 3 times PLUS that day he MUST give me Lidocaine to make up for the June Saline Solution. I think this is a fair compromise. Why do I feel I am playing “Blackjack” with my life?? And there is nothing I can do about it. If he says he would only do Lidocaine twice a year I will have to take that….but I know it will not be enough. And I explained that w/out Lidocaine I end up taking Codeine Phosphate 30 mgs. like they are TicTacs….you think he would have understood the importance & necessity of the Lidocaine. So that my friends is what happened. If it were not for Siddhartha Henry I would have done something drastic & negative to myself. He kept me from anything bad. It is always my cats that save me from Life’s worst betrayals….OK back to Siddhartha Henry…..here “Duders”:
