Misdiagnosis & Wrong Medication usage.

My father, Don Beacham Sr., died after heart surgery.

The doctor called me on the phone after he died.

“If I’d known his heart was in that bad of shape,
I never would have operated.”

The operation a success but the patient died.

An acquaintance of mine, Debbie M., had stomach pain so she went to the doctor.
He told her that Ibuprofen (a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). …
Ibuprofen may also cause stomach or intestinal bleeding, which can be fatal)
should solve the problem.
After a year and a half of increasing stomach pain, her husband insisted that
she go to the emergency room when she couldn’t eat.
It was learned there that she had stage 4 stomach cancer.
She under went chemo-therapy for 8 months and died.
She may have had cancer growing at the start of the pain but the prescribed
medicine most likely aggrevated the problem.
A wrong diagnosis led to her death.

-Wrong Medication usage

This morning on Newsmax  Health News online, I read about how singer-actor Kris Kristofferson
had been misdiagnosed by doctors and put on some drugs that had only aggravated the
memory loss and ill health. After a proper diagnosis and treatment, he is back to
normal memory and health.
How often does this happen?
Most of the time!
If someone has asthma, the docs say they are bound for lung disease, emphysema, COPD, or worse.
If someone has memory loss it must be because of Alzheimer’s or dementia.
If their joints ache, it must be arthritis.
If they have a tremor, it must be Parkinson’s.
“You’re just getting older. You have to expect…”
Most of the time, these doctors never test for these things, they just assume.
And all of the time they prescribe drugs that make health worse and can, when combined
cause greater problems, even death.
And who made the drugs?
When I was in Woodward Junior High School in St. George, Utah in the eight grade,
my home room class was on the north east of the main floor.
My instructor was Ross Taylor, the science teacher. On the strip above the caulk boards
little sayings were displayed. The one one that stands out in my mind after all these years was:
“Johnny was a chemist, now he is no more, what he thought was H20 was H2S04.”
Are grown chemists any smarter? Just because they use mice or other laboratory animals,
and the general public as their guinea pigs?
And what of drugs interactions?
A friend who rented from my in-laws in Cottage Grove Oregon, had been his high school
student body president and valedictorian.
His doctor prescribed a drug for a condition he had but failed to tell him of possible side effects.
One evening he drank a bottle of beer, it interacted with the drug and burned his brain.
This once very intelligent young man was now mentally a little boy. He could only work at menial
jobs as he wasn’t smart enough to do anything else. One evening, he cried to me, “I used to be smart.”
A sad case.
Another young friend got his hand blown up by a grenade. The hospital using the wrong medicine
killed him. But revived him later.
But he was now a paraplegic. A whole life and that of his family changed because of
a mis-prescribed drug.
How much different are our modern, adult chemists and their concoction pushers
than “Johnny” of the saying was?
