Re: Hillarious advice on dealing with male doctors

Well, from what I've read on these boards a noticeable percentage of male doctors treating women are dismissive of symptoms and ignore what their patients tell them, but I guess I can't say anything about it here.

As for the post itself, I thought it was funny.

It was and is funny.......
Everybody is entitled to their own opinions AND sense of humors. Its that sense of humor that makes our situations more easily bearable. Im sure men feel the same of us. one cant completely understand until one has been there. As you and I both know. Sooooo thanks for the laugh.....I needed it.

Re: Hillarious advice on dealing with male doctors

I thought the post was funny. As far as prescribing meds goes, my female ob/gyn (before referred to my dvh surgeon) under prescribed meds for my adeno - would only give me 800 mg ibuprofen, which did not even take the edge off the pain... it's not just the male docs who are afraid to prescribe narcotics.

Re: Hillarious advice on dealing with male doctors

I love the post! My (male) doc was dismissive of my pain, stating at 1 week post-op that I should have complete pain resolution with NAPROXEN. At 1 stinkin' week!

Turns out I had staph AND a fluid buildup of unknown origin requiring an additional 3 day hospital stay.

There are some wonderfully compassionate doctors out there. There are also some who haven't bothered to find out what's really going on with their female patients.

Re: Hillarious advice on dealing with male doctors

Reminds me of the nurse when I was 48 hours post op (a complicated TAH/BSO) who told me I had the "lowest pain threshold she had ever seen" as I writhed about in agony begging for more pain relief. She was so cold and dismissive.

2 hours later I had emergency surgery for a massive internal bleed, having already lost half my blood, which explained the agony.

I wish I could have seen her again to tell her exactly how wrong she was.

Re: Hillarious advice on dealing with male doctors

Ripple: I think some nurses are just burned out, and should take a break or find something else to do. I had mostly great nurses, but one similar to yours.
As to the original post -- it certainly creates a vivid mental image! My doc sent me home (TAH on Aug. 17) with nothing for pain at all. I asked the nurse "shouldn't I have something so I can get some sleep?" She gave me 6 indomethacin (Indocin) in a little envelope, and I had to make them last. Ironically, my son just had 2 wisdom teeth out, and came home with a prescription for 30 Toradol! They're both NSAIDs, not terribly strong, I know, but better than nothing when you need relief.
