a colonoscopy without sedation was a total non-event, I will admit that swallowing the ultrasound device for the TEE was not easy or pleasant. Once it was all the way in it wasn't a big deal. Taking it out was a little tough but it comes out much faster than it goes in. Initially it was just me and the two nurses (female) and then the tech (female) came in to get the equipment set up. The older nurse then tells the tech that I won't be sedated so we can't be talking about how cute he is. She was joking (...) largest hospital in the State.

For example, one time I went to get an MRI, but the MRI machine broke and then I had to go again the next day. And then when I told my team and my attending the MRI machine broke, they made some joke about my weight. And I was like, “No it’s actually cause there’s some helium tank in it that broke (...) and it was the telephone number to a lawyer, and I’m like, “This is all just so bizarre.” So then, I really didn’t want to get the legal system involved, but there’s got to be somebody that can help me. So then I started writing to the university president and he didn’t reply to me either. So I just got to this place where I decided to just fix everything on my own. So I made it a QI [Quality Improvement] project to create a system that I call PWP (which is physician wellness program). So that if anybody else has

It turns out that Cohen is like a lot of Burzynski patients about whom I've blogged.
