Please. Doctors see you/your kid for how long? How often? Medicine-wise, doctors don't have access to any more information on anything than any other human does. And, I guarantee you, doctors do NOT take the time (it would logistically impossible) to FULLY investigate EVERY medication they may prescribe.
further, if you think every doctor remembers every detail of every child? You're insane or stupid. For example, dd has one of THE best pediatricians in the state. #1 pedi in the state numerous times, on the cover of a magazine for it, blah blah blah. He has no recollection of whether dd has had an allergy test. He asks me every visit. HE ordered the allergy test, and it was done in HIS lab. "Does she have allergies?" Nooooo, that's why we ran a $600 blood test. In NY we had great docs. Her ENT is a top ENT in the state, head of the pediatric oranwhatever it is society, on the board at Cornell-Weill etc. Had never heard of cyclic vomiting.. insisted I was completely wayyyy off base. Guess what? He ate crow and he DID apologize for it. She did, indeed, have cyclic vomiting. I accurately diagnosed it after keeping careful track/records, and doing an enormous amount of internet research. Cost $26,000 and 2 days in a hospital for the docs to say "oh yeah, she's got cyclic vomiting syndrome".
She's on veramyst now. By using MY rx first. I know her symptoms, I know her patterns. When it was prescribed for me it was like a miracle with what it did for my sinuses. I researched it heavily, consulted several pharmacists and started administering it. It's done exactly what it did for me and her doctor gladly prescribed it when I went to him a month later and asked for her own scrip. And he is well aware I started her on it, off my own rx. She's now on an asthma regimen.. I was halfway there with the veramyst. He merely added the same medication (fluticasone propionate) that I was already using for her nasal breathing passages, for her bronchials/lungs.
Her pediatrician said this to me.. being a parent? is much like being a detective. You watch, you observe, you monitor, you watch patterns, you take notes, you investigate, and you come up with a theory/solution. As he said, "I spend a few minutes with your child, when there's an acute problem.. YOU spend every day with your child, YOU see what happens.. what are the triggers, what are the patterns, if you do this then that happens. Why would I NOT listen to you? "
My ex has ZERO use for doctors. And if I had a dollar for every time he said "YOU know what you're doing, don't let them push you around. I 100% back you up", I'd be out of debt ;)
I don't see a CPS/police issue here, I really really don't. Seems terribly dramatic to me. And I 100% agree with Gr8.
