Essay writing service review
Due to a family emergency, meaning Mike ended up back in the hospital with some abdomen issues, this week show had to be canceled at the last minute, meaning we didn’t get to shoot it so he didn’t get to edit it.

We promise to be back next week with another great episode. (I can’t tell you how bummed I am because I wrote an awesome script and we were looking forward to having some fun-Toni)

We really hate to disappoint our viewers and hope you’ll forgive us.

As for this this week, we encourage to take this time and go back and look at some of your favorite episodes.

Thanks and we’ll be back next week.

Toni, Lynnda, and Mike
(oh and teleprompter girl)

  5. Thanks folks for all your well wishes, here’s the story on what went down…

    Tuesday I woke up with some pain in my lower right abdomen, oddly enough very similar to the pain I had with appendicitis. By Wednesday it was still there so I went to see my PCP (Primary Care Physician) He decided to send me in for an immediate cat scan to see what was going on. After the scan the CT tech looked puzzled and asked if I had ever had my appendix out. When I told him I had it out 3 months ago he looked even more puzzled.

    They decided to keep me overnight for observation and introduced me to the on call general surgeon. This surgeon was one of those arrogant, pay no attention to the patient, types that we all know and love. He immediately decided that my issue was Gall Stones! Yhea, him and 3 other doctors in the past have come to this conclusion.I informed him that I have been down this road before with ultrasound test and all that jazz only to find out it’s NOT GALL STONES!!!

    But of course Arro Gant MD. is certain that he’s right and all the other docs, and test that should be in my electronic medical record, are wrong. So off we go to, you guessed it, ULTRASOUND!!!

    We spend a good 30 minutes in ultrasound looking at every part of my upper torso except for the part where I am experiencing pain. We then wheel me back to the room where I stay the night.

    Fast forward to Thursday morning when Arro Gant M.D. Shows back up to inform me that what he thinks is going on is that I have a “Stump” where my appendix used to be and it has gotten infected and inflamed. He them prescribes me some high dose antibiotics and some percocet for the pain. Then after he tells me all of this he says. “Oh, did they do that ultrasound on you?” Really? WTF? he insists that it’s gall stones and then doesn’t even look at the results before he comes to tell me whats going on with me?

    They release me from the hospital about noon and I go to fill the prescription. Now here is the best part… Dr. Dip S%@T doesn’t fill out the form correctly and now I can get the prescription!!! They want me to come back to the hospital, which is 20 miles away, to get another one. I inform them that’s not going to happen. They are going to call it into my pharmacy and I am going to go pick it up. Long story short, after about 3 hours this happens, only they have to downgrade the percosets to vicodin. Fine by me kids, I ain’t a big fan of pain killers to start with.

    So I am on the antibiotics for 7 days and then I am supposed to go see Dr. Arrogant again. I think I am going to pass on that and make an appointment with my PCP as I am done with that guy.

    So here’s a fun question for the day. If you were me what would you do about this fiasco?

  6. OH Man…. Dr Arro Gant and his type SUCK.
    If I were you I would never go back to him and get a second opinion NOW. Is it still hurting you? Get well my friend!

    Hey Mike,

    Get well soon. I hate doctors like that. I know a girl at work that was having the same problem. She had pain on and off for 3 years that would make her nauseous. They kept sending her for ultrasound looking for gall stones but couldn’t find anything. Finally, she saw a surgeon and he diagnosed her with gall bladder disease. They removed her gall bladder and the surgeon said it was diseased all the way through. Don’t know if this may apply to you or not but I just thought i’d throw it out there. Take care of yourself, Bud.

    Well, I definitely think you should see your PCP ASAP and he should know everything that happened. That way, if the problem is surgical, he can make sure you see another, more qualified surgeon to deal with the problem. No one should be experiencing pain – something is going on – and they need to fix it. We need you in tip-top shape!

  9. I would….

    #1 Post his real name so nobody else recieves the lovely care you speak of.
    #2 Fill out the survey that I am sure you will receive in the mail in a couple of weeks and express your true feelings
    #3 Word of mouth baby…. tell everyone of your experience and they will tell friends and they will tell their freinds and so on…..

    Hope you feel better soon. Love the show… my kind of humor for sure!

  10. I would 1) document your experience with as much detail as you can remember. IF (God forbid) the ABX don’t work, or you have more and further problems, you will have your A$$ covered. If you don’t document, you can forget details that might become VERY important when you sue his *** anyway – you get the idea.

    Take care of yourself and get feeling better SOON!!

  11. I am so sorry you had to go through that. As a nurse, it really pisses me off when any health care provider acts that way. First of all I hope you are feeling better and are not in anymore pain. If your pcp wants you to follow up with a surgeon, make sure it is not the same ass you had to deal with previously.

    Contact the hospital and ask for the patient advocate. Every hospital has one. This is a 3rd party that takes patient and family concerns and follows up with the hospital staff. Trust me when I say hospital administrators take very seriously any situation that involves the patient advocate.

    I hope you feel better, and my thoughts and prayers are with you.

    So sorry to hear you go thru this and dealing with Dr. Arro Gant. My dad always refered to the MD after the physcian as “Me Doctor” (as in you, ignorant patient who should bow down and accept my godliness.lol)

    That being said, you should defintely report this to your PCP (including the whole prescription fiasco) and ask to follow up with a DIFFERENT surgeon. You have to be your own advocate, which makes it very hard when you are not feeling well. I’m glad you didn’t need additional surgery. Feel better and let us know about the follow up.

  13. Oh Mike! Lord Luv a Duck, doncha just hate some surgeons! If I were there I’d give you a big smooch! Get well my friend!
