As I have already fired Dr. Dipshit, and will be seeing a (I hope) competent physician on Monday, this question is not only mundane & pointless, but if I don’t share it, Ima gonna choke somebody, so here it goes. Factual answers wouldn’t break my heart, especially if you happen to be a competent Vegas area gynecologist who doesn’t behave as if your patients are developmentally disabled 6 year olds.
So, anybody ever heard of “Vegas Pneumonia”? Is it a Sin-city tumah? Does it mimic normal boring ol’ upper respiratory viral symptoms (aka a few days of snot and coughing, commonly referred to as a summer cold)? Will the medications Vandazole, applied vaginally, or Doxycyline, internal ingestion, make it go away? Can it be accurately diagnosed by hearing a patient cough while undressing, behind a closed door, for a pelvic?
BTW – I did not fire him for the Vegas Pneumonia comment. I fired him for saying “yeast infection” specifically in reference to my chest** and** asymptomatic crotch issues, prescribing a vaginal gel that is not actually recommended for candida (even though he stated 3 times, very clearly, that I had a, and I quote, “yeast infection”), as well as prescribing doxycycline for an asymptomatic “bladder infection” without running a culture or hearing a complaint, prescribing zyrtec-D for my cough, after being told twice “no sudafed,” interrupting me when I tried to clarify, and not calling me back within 48 hours, after calling him to question the vandazole. And not wanting to discuss my extreme premature menopausal symptoms (or refilling my HRT) at all – which is why I made the damn appointment in the first place.
Anyway – tell me all about Vegas Pnuemonia, or your experiences with doctors who fly south for the winter, or, even what you had for lunch today. Distract me from my towering fury and hot flashes, please.
