I GOT SHOT TODAY!


Posted by Dee in OR , Nov 15,2001,16:08   Archive
I got my botox shots today and I have to say that my doctor is one of the nicest doctors I've ever met. Not only does he treat me with respect, he listens to me, he is interested in everything I have to say, he is impressed with how much I know about botox, the shots, blephs and he even thanked me for connecting him to the BEBRF. They sent him a packet of information. Actually, I spread his name around at the support group meeting I went to and I guess someone from there sent his name to the foundation. I always wear my BEB T-shirt and he took a picture of it the first time I went. And I always tell him about this BB and have even taken parts of posts to show him. His name is Dr. Stan Saulny and he is at OHSU at the Casey Eye Institute in Portland, Oregon. He also gives the shots at the VA Hospital in Portland, which is where I get mine. And he taught me a new trick. He said that some people scratch the tip of their nose while getting the injections and they don't hurt as much! I tried it and the shots hardly hurt at all! But I think it was his tender touch!

It sounds like you've got a winner for a doctor there Dee - and of, course, he's got a great patient who knows her stuff!

Hi Dee

Am really glad you have a good doctor. It really makes a lot of difference. I also have a wonderful doctor ... Dr. Patrick Hogan. He is very caring and takes the time to listen to my concerns. I'm going to try that trick about touching the nose, although I really don' have a lot of trouble with the shots hurting anyway. Sometimes he will hit a tender spot though, but it's not bad.

Best regards,

Carol in Naselle

Hi Dee,

Glad you have a success story for a change. You deserve it as you've had some real lue-lues (don't think that is correct ... where are you, Virginia??) in the past.

I think what you are looking for is lulu, but it doesn't quite fit the dictionary definition. I'm used to it being used as you did, though.

Virginia, not much help in Alabama. Send some of that rain, drizzle, whatever you have that's wet down here. We're turning into a desert.
