Kaiser gave me Cancer?

  1. About 4 years ago I started having problems with my memory, concentrating, rapid heat beat, seeing black spots and I knew something was wrong. I went to the doc and they ran a million tests on me, MRI, EKG, EEG, CAT Scan, etc. and said everything was fine but my thyroid was not working right.

    Before they started me on thyroid medication they wanted me to wait a couple of weeks and check it again to be sure, so I came back and felt ok, and my thyroid was normal.

    I then continued to have these "spells" and went back to the doc, again they ran tests and began to look at me like I was a hypochondriac. They sent me to be checked for epilepsy and it came back ok. I was then told by a neurologist that I was getting excited and hyperventilating, this caused the spells.... wtf, I know when I am hyperventilating.

    Last year I almost pasted out an thought I was having a stroke, again I went to the ER, EKG, MRI, blood work, etc and they said I was ok. I then looked at my blood results on line and it showed that my white blood cell count was 100x normal, so I google it, and found out I had leukemia. I called my doc and he said I don't know how we didn't catch this?

    I then went to go look at all of my past blood results and they were removed from my record :confused:

    Then come to find out my thyroid was also out of whack.

    I just wonder if my thyroid was the problem this whole time and if all of the radiation from the testing caused the leukemia..... our fucking health care system.
     
  2. hmmm i'm not sure, but PLEASE do some research on vitamin b-17. I'm sorry to hear about your diagnosis, but who knows, this could maybe help you out a lot. I know b17 helped my grandmother live 10 years past when she was supposed to "die." She also had lukemia
     
  3. No, I doubt Kaiser gave you cancer, it's not contagious. But Kaiser is HORRIBLE when it comes to health care. They will do everything they can to keep you out of their system by running meaningless tests and telling you to 'check back in two weeks' if you don't feel better.

    I have never been more appalled in my life than hearing of how people are treated at Kaiser, my good friend came very close to death and Kaiser sent her away twice before they finally admitted her.

    I'm sorry about your diagnosis, and wish you nothing but the best and speedy, healthy recovery.
     

  4. I will look into it, I am currently only 32 and have no plans of dieing anytime soon.


    I know it's not contagious, but the type I have CML is most often caused by high exposure to radiation, or other environmental poisons. I was just thinking with all of the radiation, magnetic and electromagnetic waves involved in all of the test they gave me couldn't help.

    Thank you for the well wishes.
     
  5. I'm pretty sure, but I'm not a doctor or a medical professional, that it would be from prolonged exposure, living under power lines, contaminated water ... more than a few medical tests. BUT it could have a lot to do with your body and how your body responds additionally.

    Have you ever read A Civil Action it's actually what it's about and is a good read.

  6. It usually is from prolonged exposure. Concern over medical testing really only is an issue if you were to have say, yearly radiographic screening.

    On that note, Kaiser is SHIT. They put me on very toxic medication, and refused to follow protocol with regular testing on my kidneys and liver. It was a two month wait for any specialists, and I was misdiagnosed with a condition much more serious that what I actually have.
     

  7. I think you are correct, I am just pissed at Kaiser because I had to diagnose myself. That looks like a good book, I will add it to my must read list, is that the one that Erin Brockovich is based on?


    I am sorry to hear that, I have heard many similar stories, I hope all is ok now?
     
  8. Yes, luckily I've got a PPO now and can see whatever doctor I'd like to. Thank God!
     

  9. No, Erin Brockovich was against PG&E and A Civil Action is about a cause of kids getting leukemia in Massachusetts due to contaminated water. There is a movie about it that is quite good too [by the same name].
     
  10. Wow that sucks man. Go get your med card now.
     

  11. I have had it for over a year.


    Thank you for the tips.... so much new info to learn.


    Have you read the book? I would rather read it, but only if it's a good read.


    I did the same, the president of our company actually changed our entire companies health insurance because of my experiences.
     

  12. Yes, I have. I read it for a Law, Literature and Popular Culture class when I was in school. It is a good read, it's not all that long, and I really enjoyed it.

    I was actually at school in Massachusetts when I was reading it and my roommate and I went on an excursion to the town where it happened [we were bored a lot lol].
