Gyn doesn't remember me.

Well, I was at the dr's on Friday to set up surgery to remove scar tissue and to see what else could be causing the right sided pain in the pelvic bowl area. Nothing has worked ie, acupuncture and physical therapy. Pain clinic has been no help either. I can not take pain meds either. Back to the dr appointment. I get in the room, nurses first question was when was your last period, I said duh..November. She asked if I was pregnant. I said I hope not, if I was I was going to have fun filing a malpractice suit. She asked why, I replied that I had had a hyster and both ovaries removed in December. I also preceded to tell her I had bilateral mastectomies at the same time. She then preceeded to get the blood pressure cuff out to take my blood pressure. I asked what she was doing as she is wrapping it around my arm. She said taking you blood pressure. I told her no she wasn't and she kind of got upset. I then had to explain to her about the mastectomies, her reply was well thats the first I have heard you couldn't get your blood pressure taken. I said I can have my blood pressure taken but you cannot use either of my arms. She got miffed walked out of the room and in came the dr. She the dr. apologized and said that that will never happen again. The wierd thing is my files are all flagged. Allergic to all narcotics and lists them and also has Hyster w/bilateral sab..oopherectomy as well as bilateral mastectomies, I guess even having it flagged on your charts some people don't read. It is all on Hot Pink Paper which is laminated to the front, How could she not see it? Oh well, I guess no one is perfect and neither is medicine. At least my drs know what is going on.
