So today the nurse came to me and said my neph wanted me to try the dipperitimal one more time to see if I have the chest pains, uh is he crazy? I tried 3 times already! He doesn't believe me, cause he says only the iv version gives you chestpains, I think he is full of crap. I will go see my v surgeon on Monday to see what he says since he's the one that gave me plavix in the first place, my neph switched me. What does he want an er report to proove my complaint? I wish doctors would start listening more to patients then decide what they wanna do, uh no I'm not going through hell with chestpains again thank you very much. He is also saying it's something else, well since I've been off of that med I feel fine.

You, as a patient have the right to say NO!  You don't have to take anything you aren't comfortable in taking...and YES, I would get the ER report and have them fax it to your doctor.

Any change, even a change for the better, is always accompanied by drawbacks and discomforts.
