May be time for a new doctor...

So last week my Doctor's office waited 4 days to tell me that I had a UTI...after an appointment stressing to me that my pregnancy was considered high risk simply because of my age. Now that I am done with the antibiotics they gave me that made me sick, they are not sure they want to put me on more even though I am worse...I think finding another Doc may be on my list of things to do for the day.

    I think that sounds like a good idea. That's ridiculous. Bladder infections can endanger the baby (at least that's what I was told).
    Apple Cider Vinegar in a bath (a cup in a shallow bath twice a day if you can for at least 20 minutes). Cranberry juice, excess water and very limited sugar are cures alternative to medicine if you want to try. :)

      And I am prone to kidney infections. They called me back finally today because I called to have them give me something else and all she did was tell me that she needed to call the doctor and see if they want to give me something else. So now I wait for another phone call. And I called as soon as they opened this morning at 8 am. It's just crazy to me.

        I still have not heard back from them yet either. Thankfully the network that our insurance is in has 3 hospitals relatively close to us. I think tmr I may be calling them.

        We are going to look tonight...the sad part is that I was driving an hour and a half to go to this office because they are supposed to be the best around...guess not!

          I called and told them that if they didn't call within 20 minutes I would be finding a new doctor...they called back in five. lol I think I'm still going to shop around though.
