A drunk hit me head on, but I only remember parts of the accident, as I was knocked out cold. The hospital I was rushed to did the most horrible care with me, leaving me for days in excruciating pain.
I will never again will go to an Aurora care center. Even my complaints of horrible care, in writing letters, emails, phone calls, etc, to this day, went unanswered!
I suffered a crushed heel bone, and a broken wrist. I had to beg for care to care my wrist, and receive pain meds, as I found that I was allergic to morphine. I never knew what my crushed foot was called, nor did any doctor talk to me regarding the issues, while I was hospitalized for four days. They never looked into the reason why I kept passing out either.
I went to a doctor a month after my accident, because no doctor would treat me, for an accident. That doctor was horrible, kept me in pain constantly, where I had to beg for results. I was in a wheelchair for almost 1-1/2 years, as I could not even stand. I requested to go to therapy, and was told it would not help me.
I had to threatened to file a complaint with the AMA, in order to get therapy. On my therapy prescription, it was stated, Rsd?
I was never told of the fracture or of rsds, and did not know what it was. I was told that my foot was too far gone, and there was nothing that they could do for me. I've seen doctor after doctor, with the same answers, but no explanations.
My therapist is the only one, who finally told me about my foot and what Rsds was. Thank God for her. She is my angel! I pushed myself, and with her love and tons of help, I progressed to a walker.
Today, I do walk now, not good, but I do walk, with tons of pain, and suffer with a rare nerve disease called, "rsds." There is no cure for this disease, which is very sad. It took me, tons of doctors, a wonderful therapist, determination, much pain, and three years, just to walk! It is very sad when no medical field really gives a crap about their patient, or their care!
Today, I work for "Rsds Hope of Wisconsin, Inc," helping patients and myself, with the rare nerve disease, support, suicide support, knowledge, and financial support, with love and friendship that is needed!
Push your determination, and complain to the AMA, if you have to, for your care! It is your body and your lif, that they are playing with, and ignoring! Praise God for health care!
