Relapse

Just as scripted: relapse. 

However, the student of: fool me once shame on you; fool me twice shame on me, another doctor was consulted. The diagnosis conjunctivitis, not ulcers. The antibiotic drops that should have been given in the first place worked immediately. The course of treatment followed and surprise, it worked with no relapse. 

Amazing what can happen when the doctor is competent.

Clear

Got the all clear from the doctor with an odd request. Even though the insurance coverage is dubious, he insists that if there is a relapse that he get a call right away, day or night. 

Waiting to see why he's so insistent about what to do in case of a relapse. 

Why would there be a relapse?

Eyes Required

Side Effects:
The jury is still out on the specialist who is suppose to determine what's wrong. He's given his opinion, diagnosis and prescribed a toxic medication. 
When asked about what he meant by toxic medication, he repeated toxic. You'll use it or go blind. Then left the room. 
So the treatment started and the package insert answered the question: What did he mean by toxic medication? It causes tumor growth and cancer. 
Blind or chance of cancer? 
Second opinion doctor said there was no sign of the first doctor's diagnosis but certainly, he wouldn't prescribe a toxic medication if it weren't necessary. That would be insane. 
So with the hope that the doctor is  not insane, the treatment continues.
