I am with you Major Karma and I used to be a nurse, in critical care amongst other places. I agree that nurses should have the patient top and centre
in their considerations. This means gaining trust - although valve replacement surgery can be very quick these days, [you can be in and out in 3
days], it is still extremely scary.
I would be terrified if it was me.
I am glad you have recovered and I wish you health and best wishes for the future.Stay well.
Helen, I often forget that many of these people are living in some sort of hell or festering sewer.
Some years back, one of my brother's got trapped in the scenario these dregs paint so well but, it was at what supposedly is one of the best Cancer
Treatment Hospitals in the country (City Of Hope). Between their barbaric treatments and lazy nurses, he ended up having to be rushed to Cedars-Sinai
where they did open heart surgery before I could get to him to take control of the situation. It was all a living nightmare for my brother and for me
faced with being able to do too little too late; they murdered him as sure as if they had poisoned him and to this day my name brings shivers to the
administrators of that hospital; if I had the opportunity today to kick them in the teeth, I would...does this make me a "Hater"
It is a very long story but, I too had had the same weird cancer (I believe we were both exposed to some cancer agents when I was going through the
finally phases of building a horse-racing and gaming facility here in SoCal...kind of like how they killed Hugo Chávez ) but in my case I spit in the
Cancer Specialists faces when they recommended Chemo, Radiation and their other Barbaric procedures; I dictated my own course of treatment and 14
years later I have not had problem one until this problem with my heart popped up and here again, I am in control of my treatment. Guess you would
call me a Control Freak and outside of God or Jesus himself anyone who thinks I am to be one of their victims, is in for a harsh awakening.
I have said it elsewhere, I have spoken at length with the best of the best and as it happens, a old friend of my is the CEO for the company that
produces the "Medtronic CoreValve" and while I could have gone to Canada or France for a similar procedure, I have decide to pay cash and have the
latest CoreValve installed via Transcatheter at a small private hospital in Dana Point. The valve is still going through the FDA Trials but here
again, there are always means to an end for those who simply will not accept less than the best.
I could go on and on about this subject but the fact is I am very rare and the majority of people get treated like cattle...not me or mine ever again.
I doubt even Dick Chaney could get the kind of treatment I get, why? Because I make it so and accept nothing less. Nurses? I have only had
problems wit a few nurses in my life because I nipped them at the first sign of in appropriateness. If the head nurse or Hospital Administrators
can't satisfy me, I have an army of people, including attorneys dying for the opportunity to rush in to help me. No brag, just a fact. I could go on
to tell you about my relationships with Law Enforcement and Politicians but that would be some sort of tacky bragging. I am in fact regretting
having ever opened my mouth on this subject as it is beneath me to expose myself on subjects with people who to a large extent don't live in the same
world as I do. I hope you read this soon , as I will be deleting it.
BTW, I am not in anyway scared of this procedure or death for that matter and my bet is I will be in and out of the hospital in 24 hours. The
Procedure with take less than 30 minutes. I had a Stint installed last Thursday and checked myself out the next morning. Everyone, including the
doctors are in something of awe of me but anyone who knows me finds it a learning experience but here again, it will all just sound like bragging.
The fact is, most people really live life some kind of subservient slaves...NOT ME.
