How many 'ologists do you have?

20 posts in this topic

Hello All

 

How many 'ologists do you have?

 

When I was first diagnosed I only had one, a rheumatologist and 4 years on I only have three, from scleroderma I have a rheumatologist and a cardiologist, I also have a randomly acquired gynecologist but that's not scleroderma related, I think, but for the purpose of this count an 'ologist is an 'ologist so I have three!

 

I am certain there must be some of you with at least five, well way more than me anyways!

 

Who will win the award for having the most 'ologists? I have a sneaking suspicion who may be among the top five but I could be wrong!

 

There's a bunch of :balloons: and a :emoticon-congratulations: in it for the winner plus the prestigious title of "2011's patient with the most 'ologists!"

 

Take care.

Amanda,

 

Under other circumstances I would be saying you need to get out more :rolleyes: but that's not easy for you so I think we had better think of some more mind stretching puzzles for you to work on!!

 

However, since you asked the question, I couldn't stop thinking and counting my ologists.

 

I have a Rheumatologist, 2 Gastroenterologists, Cardiologist, Dermatologist and 3

 

surgeons, Vascular, Colo-Rectal and Gastro.

 

If you can turn those 3 surgeons into ologists I am way out in front at the moment. Not sure that it is so important to be in front - perhaps it would be healthier to be behind.

 

Best wishes

 

Judy

 

As well, I meant to tell you that I took some photos of my glorious support stockings and have been trying to upload them, but so far I can't. Jo has tried to help me but it is still a work in progress.

OOps, I forgot the Neurologist who I haven't seen for ages because no headaches for 7 years. Then there is the Audiologist who I will have to go back to because I am getting so deaf - what was that you said?. And the Opthalmologist because my glasses need an upgrade, not to mention my wooden leg!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I also have several meteorologists, cosmetologists, technologists, and am married to a mixologist! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Fantastic ladies and great numbers so far!

 

Judy I had no idea you has so many, I make 7 and I can't wait to see the stockings! Wooden leg, I wish as they don't get ulcers just woodworm! :lol:

 

Miocean I make 18 medical ones (some people are just soooo greedy!) and no you don't get to include your husband unless he examines you and I really don't want to know about that! :lol:

 

Annie, 3 is a good number particularly as I only have 3!

 

Jo, you just outdo me and Annie by 2, I expected you to have more but I'm not sure why?

 

So, anyone else with more than Miocean?

 

Take care.

Well I have Rheumatologist, Dermotologist, Neurologist and an Orthopeadic doctor but I don't think they go by any type of ologist in Ortho!

Probably a good thing you've forgotten Shelley otherwise I suspect you'd be a clear winner! With MAS you'd have to be!

 

Take care.

I like this thread, Judy! Thanks for starting it, because it sure has made me laugh :lol:

 

I just wanted to say that I have the "usual" 'ologists,, but just had to add that my hubby is

working on perfecting his "special recipe, so I would like to add to the "MIX" here, that I'm

thinking he surely must be a "Bananabreadrecipeperfectionologist" :emoticons-yes: (Besides

THAT, I reap the benefits of all of his testings, as I happen to be his guinea pig!!!


Special Hugs,

I was going to put "astrologist" in my original post but thought THAT was pushing it.
