I Could Have Told Them That....

Recommended Posts

So the biopsy of the blister came back.....inconclusive with possible diagnosis being eczema and psoriasis....

 

Well I could have told them that. 

 

The immuno-florescent study of the uninvolved skin has not come back yet.  The nurse said "well it says it is not diagnostic of DH"- Duh.   I told them the biopsy of the blister wouldn't diagnose DH.

Always lovely when the doctors know what they're doing.........typed with extreme sarcasm. :)

 

Hopefully the other, correct test, will come back with real information!

 

IKR!!   I wanted to be like, well, thanks for the waste of money....we already knew she had eczema, and if the DH test comes back positive, it probably isn't psoriasis!  I don't think it is psoriasis, but if it is, it is just another Celiac symptom......

Plus, when I google pictures of psoriasis, that is NOT what her rash looks like at all.  Once the blisters pop, dry, and then eventually peel, they kind of.....sort of...maybe look like that-  ish.....  It is a stretch.

Aggravating! Did they tell you how long it would be for the other test to come back?

 

Sometimes, it's nice to be vindicated. Other times, while it's nice to be vindicated....it is also rather bittersweet. :(

I've had my fill of doctors lately....and pharmacy people too. Heaven knows what we're going to have to go through with the people that work at CVS here when we tell them that all his medication has to be gluten free. I can picture it already....and it isn't good. :/ I really wish I could go back to my local Walgreens! Grumble...grumble....grumble!!!

Nope.  They told me their courier comes every day at 4 and to feel free to call.  The nurse said she would call me as soon as she got the results, but I called yesterday before she looked at the reports.

 

As far as pharmacies go- be prepared to have to call the medicine manufacturers and for them to give you a canned line of "we do not certify our products but can tell you there are no ingredients that naturally have gluten in them".  Pain!

Awesome. I already dislike CVS...this is only going to add to it (even though I know it isn't their fault, they drive me nuts enough to make it their fault!) wonderful.

I hope those results come in soon. That response would have driven me nuts. My offices usually tell me it should be here within so many days and if we haven't called you by this day...please call us.
