    Billy you have that right. She looks 18 but said she is 30. She spent all her time on her laptop trying to find the answers for me. She really had no idea what was making me faint. A real doc would have seen this before and had the answer in his head. Thanks for caring for me. I won't stop fighting tell I get well.

    Chrissy, never take any crap from a young or clueless doctor. here's a perfect illustration: My dad had a stroke when he was 38, and was correctly diagnosed and treated at a specailist unit. However, that hospital was far away and difficult for us to get to. So, when he was stable they transferred him to our local hospital for further medication. he arrived on the ward and was seen by a young woman who had only just qualified that summer. She didn't read his notes and started treating him, but he soon became very very ill and went into a coma and died. It turned out she had misdiagnosed a brain heamorage and gave him blood CLOTTING medication instead of the blood THINNING he needed. She was an arrogant know-it-all and never read his transfer file. He died 3 days before my 18th birthday. She was sent back to Edinburgh university to retake her final year, but not punished and we weren't compensated....never even got an apology. We only found out about it all when a nurse on the ward told me what had gone wrong. That was not just professional neglect, her arrogance made it murder. Now I take great pleasure in slaughtering doctors and vets who show a lack of knowledge, but an unwillingness to be told.

    Seems lately all the doctors are just guessing. When the new health care law was passed, our local hospital closed up, as did the urgent care clinics, so it was a 45 mile drive to see a doctor. The hospital was finally bought by another company, and re-opened. I've had bronchitis a few times, and practically have to tell the doctor what I need, rather than them diagnose it.

    My Dr's at the VA are all old and experienced , They are anywhere from 50 to 70 years old and know their stuff. Every time I go over there they will check out everything and if you tell them their something wrong they will be test of x-rays or anything youj need. I am very satisfied with the VA and I never get a Bill Is the main thing:) I will be getting new Hearing Aids Tuesday with remote control LOL all I have to do to shut some one is Push a Button LOL

    That was one sad story Billy. Had your Father died of natural causes it would have been easier to take. She was fully to blame for this and it shouldn't have happened. It was murder for sure. She caused a lot of pain to your family.

    Damn that is terrible! Did you ever track her down and confront her? No apology? That sucks. My dad had a heart attack when I was 22 he was 55. He didn't make it. He had just came back from a physical exam that day, he was out Morel Mushroom hunting. He supposedly didn't hear anything wrong with his heart.

    I kept tabs on the girl for a year or more. She stayed up in Edinburgh. Only my dad's brother, me and his best friend knew what had gone wrong and we never told my Mum or my two kid brothers, (they were only infants). My dad's best mate was a local solicitor and he spent two years trying to get the medical records from the case so we could sue the hospital...but even he was told they had "mystreriously" dissapeared.

    To make the story even stranger, my best friend was killed in a road accident a few days after my Dad died. Sadly it he was crossing the road to catch the school mini-bus to go on a evening theatre visit which I had organised. I wasn't there, but my friends saw the whole thing from the bus - he was killed instantly. I went to 2 funerals in ten days and was only just 18.

    Sorry to hear about your Dad Marc. Nothing worse than losing your Dad in your formative years....maybe explains why we are a pair of wierdos.

    Sorry for the loss of your fathers, Geoff and Marc. Especially at a young age. I can only imagine.

    Good doctors are similar to good mechanics. It seems some have the talents; while others just turn wrenches or prescribe pills.

    Such a sad story Billy, they wouldn't get away with it now! I lost my Dad when I was 21 and he was only 58 at the time, he had a dreadful battle with cancer and I saw him in hospital on my 16th and 18th then my sister told me on my 21st the cancer had returned (ill never understand to this day why she had to tell me that day!)

    My Dad was a super guy, worked in the NHS all his working career, never drank or smoked and never swore or raised his voice to his kids (all 10 of us!) he could turn his hand to anything, and I miss the fact we never got to work on another car together! He built a JBA Javelin Kit Car out of my older brothers MK II Capri 2.0 GT that he pranged up...

    We kept it running for a while after he passed, but eventually it went to a guy in Scotland that had built a few, if anyone sees it (originally Orange when in its Capri days, then Silver as a Javelin) last known colour was Bright Red! it was registered on the original plates (N Reg if I remember correctly) not on a Q plate...
