    Human Porcupine..and docs dont believe it

    I am turning to the boards so in the event that someone else experiences what i'm going thru you are not alone.
    On August 27 ,2019 My life went crazy upside down. In my culture we have a dish called Nopalitos ..basically its tender cactus leaves that have been cleaned and cut ..and for the most part they are done at facilities that are well prepared for this prior to shipping.. I bought some supposed cleaned and cut ones from my local Walmart. .. cooked them up a couple days later and got the worst shock of my life. they still had thorns..actually GLOCHIDS.. thats the proper name. For weeks i have been in and out of hospitals. i've had them coming out of my hairline, feet, breast, arm and legs...But according to the doctors that is IMPOSSIBLE..honey nothing is impossible..Why? because nothing can get out of the GI tract..one way in one way out...Not in my case

    .I've had a ct scan , barium test and x ray done..and those suckers cannot be seen on there..Because these tests come out clean and the blood work also comes out clean I'm sent home from emergency..Only to deal with the pain again at home.

    I had told them i felt them in my eye and throat..and according to a quick flash in the eye and throat there was nothing. Now i'm no doctor but if someone is telling me that they have pain in the throat you bet i will go in thru the nasal passages to the back of the throat to see if the sensation is there as well.. My eye was quickly rectified the first doctor that listened and believed me. He did emergency laser surgery.. and for now my eye is good..THANK GOD...Today i have my appointment with the ENT..it takes weeks to get these appointments because you are considered a new patient..Sometimes wish i had been admitted so these same doctors could of been there at that moment.

    My post is clear..Doctors..please think out of the box instead of what you learned in a book.. now yes there are some people that go in for the quick med fix..and then there are others like me...that genuinely want help..and if you dont know about it..dont turn your back on us..Cause if i took the time to look for you..you can turn and look for someone to educate you even further in this matter..
