Wed, May 15 9:49am · Sjogrens in Autoimmune Diseases

Dear Lioness, Peach here. I went to a vascular doctor and she starts to treat me with medicine for the two arthritis problems I have-(Rheumatoid and Psoriatic) Two medications were prescribed that were dangerous to my life. She will not address the vascular problems. How to handle this? I have asked to see a different vascular doctor. (This doctor also yells at me and I do not have a hearing problem.) I brought medical reports, etc which i was told to bring with me and she did not want to see any of them. All this in just the one office visit I had with her.

Dear 8j4p2r I do sympathize with you. I have sjogrens, rheumatoid and psoriatic arthritis (and other medical problems) It is impossible to know which one is the culprit when the symptoms are similar to each other. This also impedes proper treatment. It is a guessing game. I am now with a vascular doctor who is trying to treat me for the arthritis problems. I told her I have a rheumatologist and you want me to take a medication methylprednisolone which is contradictory and dangerous to the many medical diagnosis I have. I came to this doctor for the vascular problems I have. How do I handle this??????

I have both sjogrens and psoriatic arthritis and rheumatoid. The doctors here in Ocala, Florida have no clue. Help. 81 years on this earth. Long time to suffer. (Many other health problems as well.) Boy wold I be a great patient for study. Well, here I am. Perhaps Mayo could use me as a study. What think??????

Dear Lioness the stents were put into the illiac veins 9/6/18. As soon as I woke up there was much pain in my urethra and still is to this day. Wound up with sepsis within two weeks of this procedure. There was no reason for the urethra to be touched for this procedure. This was not done in a hospital. I have gone to a urologist and after telling him of this, asked for him to look into the urethra and the bladder to see if there was anything inside this area and was refused. The pain continues. Yes, you are right and I should call Mayo for their help. I am not to near a Mayo and I will some how have to find a driver.(Legally blind). My god I am in a terrible position. Holding on tight.

I did not reply as to why do I want the stents removed. I am wondering should I have the stents removed because I became septic from this procedure (September 1918) and am still having the same symptoms since. Frightening. peach

Thank you for your reply. Is a stent the same as a stint? I hope I have not confused anything. You are correct this should be presented to the doctor. Again thanks peach

Please, very important to me: Can stents in the iliac veins be removed? ( 2 in the left vein and one in the right vein) Would appreciate and thank you peach414144

Sorry to say quite irritated (But not because of you). It is really getting to me. Just found out on top of everything else my kidneys have shrunk quite much. I had been telling my doctors about the pain in the back where the kidneys are for about a year now. They did not want to address this issue. I am guessing because of the many other health issues I have confuses them. Holding on with much irritation and wanting to lash out. Wish I could afford to move elsewhere. Thank you for listening. Take care. Peach
