Ok i posted last night i really need advice. my bf has had bad pancreas attacks and has been in the hospital multiple times for it , kept for up to two weeks. Well for the past solid 4 days at the least he has been in horrible pain from it, pretty much couch ridden at time and would only be able to walk if he crouched over. his blood pressue up, feeling sick to his stomach..all that. He doesnt have insurance. well finially last night he couldnt take the pain and i dropped him off at the ER around 7 (i had to get my son to bed). well the doctors treated him like shit because he has a past of using drugs (he doesnt anymore). they told him they didnt wanna give him pain meds, wrote him off saying its just scar tissue and non of his levels are elevated. His upper right stomach under the ribs is tender and i am wprried its his galbladder. we are thinking of trying a diff hospital today and i am gonna go with. they brushed him off i am really upset because he is in pain. he doesnt have a general dr he can just whisk into! what do we do..they didnt refer him or anything thwy treatex hin like a drug seeking scum bag and he IS NOT

File a complaint with your State Medical Board. Go to another ER

 I am sorry about his pain. ER bills are expensive, so if you don't have insurance how are you paying for them??

 report the hospital tell the one you went to how much pain hes in (they can see that by the way he walks i know cause i had that when my gullbladder went septic) and tell them he NEEDS to be treated and no tturned away!! you need to sit with him and vouch for him because then theres a witness they cant walk all over AND sence you are there they CANT just write him off or face liability.

I have been clean for 6 years, and I don't tell Dr's about my past drug use. They will not treat you the same. Even health care professionals can be judgmental asshats. I would report the ER and the Dr. Sorry I hope you find him some relief!

File a complaint and try to find a GP. ER and Urgent Care doctor's are always going to be leery that he is looking for drugs. It sucks, but they have to be cautious too.

Take him to another ER. Dont listen to ppl who ask how you are going to pay. If its an emergency thats the last thing you should be worried about.

We arent married so its not me and idk he has many bills from the ER and he almost died once someone tried to kill him and he stayed almost a month for that and got a hefty bill for that almost half a mil all together its tough but that wasnt my question...we will figure it out and maybe find a dr who will help but thats hard with no insurance
