Okay, so this is a more upbeat post that my last one, where I was talking about how I was convinced I had this horrible problem with my health and all the doctors didn't believe me.
Well now, I've got good/bad news. The good news being that my condition is so objectively bad that the doctors can't deny something's very wrong. Specifically, obstructive sleep apnea and hypoxemia (down to 77% O2), despite having a trach.
The problem is that I've alienated every doc I' ve came into contact with. I'm concerned that they'll just leave me hanging--even if they're aware I'm right--rather than eat the amount of crow that admitting they were wrong would entail.
They have me on oxygen, and I'm concerned that this is their plan vs. actually doing something surgically for me. Considering that I'm in and out of the ER 2X/month, I'm not really at a point to re-establish a patient/doctor relationship.
There's obvious resources for somone who wants to SUE a doctor; I'm not aware of what's available for someone who's simply in need of treatment. I was hoping there'd be somone out there w/ knowledge of some sort.
