Ok, so most of you if not all of you know about my issues with my current graft, well after two weeks of being worked on by a totally different surgeon, it's doing the same thing again, it's narrowing off and the only place they can canulate now is up where the graft loops into the armpit, if they stick anywhere else the blood looks like grit going through the line and I don't get good flows and lots of alarms.
Well I told my doctor my frustrations and concerns and he said well your last urr looks ok so unfortunetly you are just gonna have to deal with it and we aren't going to place another access until the surgeon notifies me he can not open this one, ok so my monthlys where taken after the last time it was open that's probably it's good, now 3 weeks later it needs to be plastied again? That is unacceptible to me! My surgeon even offered a couple of options to a thy graft to a hero device but my doctor says those aren't an option, what's he to tell me that I can't have those options? I think he's violating my patient rights. I even have one of those new stent grafts put in but that doesn't seem to be working either. Something has got to give or I will make sh*t hit the fan and it won't be pretty!
I'm thinking of just switching doctors if he's not going to give me what I want.
