Mad at the doctor! 5 years= 5kids Due November 2; 4 kids; Sullivan, Missouri 2287 posts

Ok, So on Feb 19th, I noticed a knot, about the size of a dime on my 3rd sons leg. I called the doctor, he told me to place warm compresses on it and rub it. 2 weeks later, the knott is the size of a quarter. I call the doctor again, he says "oh it's probably just a reaction to something" it will go away.... Monday, it's the size of a silver dollar. He says ok, we'll see him, bring him in on Wednesday. DH takes him in today, the doctor was in the for 5 min glazed at it and said "call me in a month if it doesn't go away"



Seriously!
UGH!

If it's growing you NEED to find a new dr ASAP!

Um.. if it's growing that fast I'd take him to an urgent care or different doctor.



Is it raised? Does it hurt? Does he have a fever?

Unacceptable. Get an appt, and/or tell them over the phone they can refer you somewhere, or you're getting a new pediatrician. NOW.

I called a few other pedi's within a 30 mile radius.



Their like. Dr V***** is a highly respected member of the medical community, I don't think he will steer you wrong. Ugh I feel like hiItting my head up against a wall!

Get a new dr whether he's 'respected' or not!

Don't tell them who his doctor is. Tell them you forgot the name.. maybe.

It's raised, he doesn't act like it hurts, and he doesn't have a fever.

Which is fine- but ask your pedi's office for a surgical consult. It sounds like you'll need that more than a pediatrician right now anyway. They might not need to do anything surgical but they can tell you what treatment would be necessary.

His physical therapist says it feels like it's getting scar tissue around it.

hat looks like the injection site. Looks like he has had a reaction to the shots. It should be looked at especially if it is growing. That is not good!
