I had in my mind that I was going to have a LAVH, and that would be that. Now take in mind that my surgery is the 8th of Dec and my bags are packed my husband and my work schedules have been canceled for my surgery.

So at 2:00pm was my appt to meet with the Doc, but to my suprise again I was greeted by a intern that said that my appt was with her and not the person that was going to do my surgery!!!!!! I was in shock, I told her that I was to see the Doctor and not her. Well cone to find out he was holding clinic and that the only Hyst he does are abdominal...... I was and still am livid.... I was so upset that I asked for a copy of my file and walked out. I work in the medical field and have never seen anything like this in my life that was Very Poor patient care. If I had known months ago that was the only type of Hyst that he does I would of went else were. I'm just can't stop being mad and hurt, and the thing is he never came in the room to talk to me....Just beside myself right now.. (sorry for the missed spelled words)
You Poor thing! I feel your pain and dissapointment! I am here to listen! How can they do this to you? It is so hard for us to deal with all this as it is! Why do some people need to make it even harder?

Re: Pre-op appt yesterday

My Dr said upfront that she had another Dr that she wanted to do the surgery. She doesn't do Lap surgery so she wanted this specialist to do it and she would assist. I looked up the specialist and hes won awards for his surgery. I love that my Dr cared enough to step back and let another Dr do the surgery. Good luck in finding another dr. there are plenty of good ones out there and as bad as this is you have to go through now you know to ask the right questions...

Re: Pre-op appt yesterday

I also had my pre-op appt this week and my surgery is on 12/8. I am having the TLH. I am so sorry that your pre-op appt was so bad. That was not right sending in an intern to talk to you. I would not want a doctor that didn't meet with me prior to surgery to do surgery on me. The doctor needs to make sure he/she knows exactly what your wishes are and to be there to discuss your questions. I wish you the best and hope you can find a doctor that treats you as you should be treated.
