Until 2015 I was healthy and active. I never had any serious health issues nor surgeries. I dared to even consider myself lucky. But everything changed suddenly in May 2015. It started with a mild indigestion that wouldn’t go away. The pain was getting worse and I had to go to the ER at one of the top hospitals in Boston. The doctor in the ER did not listen as I tried to explain the symptoms and signs I had been experiencing during the last two weeks. The hospital discharged me with no diagnosis. I went home in pain and disbelief, not knowing what was wrong with me. Over the weekend I wasn't feeling better and was desperate for a diagnosis and treatment. It took me two hours Monday morning to get a same day appointment with a specialist at another hospital. This time the doctor listened, looked at me while consulting (not at the computer screen or charts) and within a few minutes sent me urgently to the ER for a CT scan. The scan revealed my critical acute condition and in less then an hour I was on my way to the operating room. It was a long and successful operation followed by a prolonged recovery period. The correct diagnosis is the reason I’m alive today and able to resume my normal life.
