Well, I decided to do nothing. I am watching Smokey and the Bandit. I need a good laugh and this will do it for me. If I do nothing, then nothing can bother me. I will start again tomorrow.

SIL went to the doctor because she had pain and a swelling on her ankle. He said that she had a spider bite and gave her some sort of pill. This did not solve the problem so she went back and this time he told her she had gout and gave her a diet to follow. She did this for a while and it did not help. When she went back for the third time he took an x-ray and found out that all this time she had a fracture in the ankle. Unbelievable.

I hope he refunded her for the first two visits.

Where is this doctor located? I want to be sure to stay far away from there.

Unbelievable indeed.

My SIL lives in Colorado. Believe me she will not be going back to him ever again.

Give me his address. I have been labeled Non-Compliant and can drive a doctor crazy asking questions. I also look on the web for my own answers and then confront the doctor with my knowledge. Dotors who think they are God don't like that. So if your SIL doesn't want to file suit, then I can get even for her. By the time I am through with him, he will quit the medical field or go down to the bowels of the basement in the morgue and perform autopsies.

By the way, gout cannot be totally ruled out. It's a regular test that measures protein levels. My husband actually did really damage his foot, a sprain, and that disguised the gout thing. We tried all the dietary stuff with no results and he went on alopurinal (I may have misspelled that). This doctor sounds terrible, but there are times when one problem can disguise itself in other problems. Gout is actually a relative, a form of, arthritis. As a friend of mine said, "well, if this is rich man's disease, when the **** is the money coming in?"
