That hospital is getting a piece of my mind!

I told the doctor through the nurse I wanted a x-ray done on my mom last week. Because she was on oxygen and was wheezing. She wasn't on oxygen at home. She was since she been in there with the surgery and all. He said she didn't need one she sounded clear. I told the nurse. I'll have to see what I can do. Next thing that happens he orders a water pill for her. I don't think he had been giving them to her she gained 20 lbs. in a matter of days! She has CHF she has to have that pill!

She has lost some weight since then. But now her breathing is worse and she is wheezing bad! They finally order a x-ray for her. Found water around her heart! They called in the heart specialist. If this is bad this is ALL their fault!! I told them to do this last week the doctor REFUSED!

I'm getting ready to go up their now.

A chest X-ray is standard best practice in a basic evaluation. Sounds to me like doc got arrogant because you asked.

 Personal opinion...get a lawyer. Dr's think that we don't know anything and don't listen most of the time. Get a lawyer.
