ER Dr. Comments

So Tuesday when I was at the ER (2nd time in 2 days). The nurses and the male doctors were so sweet to me. Then the attending physician came in and it was a female. She began to question why I would have a hysto at 29 I was too young. Then she had the nerve to ask me if I was regretting it and maybe that was why I was in the ER.

She then left the room and called my surgeon who admitted for 2 days. Not only was I in horrible pain but my liver enzymes were acting up.

I guess her comments have still been bothering me as I am an emotional hormonal mess. I had this surgery to end the pain off the endo and to get rid of the cancer cells that were found and do not regret my decision. I do have my moments but I think that is normal especially since I am not even 3 weeks out.

Also what is up with the multiple medical people asking if I am pregnant "Oh you had a hysto this week, is there any chance you are pregnant?" ***!!!

I just needed to vent about some people's comments. You would think that it is a FEMALE DOCTOR that she would know better than to make such stupid comments.

Re: ER Dr. Comments

As you know, some people are insensitive idiots, as well as jerks. I can not understand myself why someone in the medical field would ask if there was a chance of you being pregnant, knowing that you had a hysterectomy. smh This makes me question the true knowledge of those medical "professionals". I am sorry to hear that you had that experience with the ER DR. She should have been a little more sensitive to your plight, and kept her thoughts to herself. Yes, its perfectly normal to be hormonal after having a hysterectomy, I had mine 3 weeks and 3 days ago, and for the first 2 weeks, I would cry over every little thing, and our sisters on this site will tell you that also. Take care of yourself and your emotional needs, because this is a very crucial time in the healing process and you need all the support you can get, and not a bunch of negative comments or people around you.
Take care!

Re: ER Dr. Comments

I am 3.5 weeks post-op and was in the ER for heavy bleeding. The ER ran a pregnancy test and performed an ultrasound to ensure my uterus was indeed removed. I was totally shocked that they did these tests. My surgery was at the same hospital!! Just makes me wonder sometimes...

Unfortunately in many, if not all, states it is required that they ask if you are pregnant before treating you.

Some people are so stupid and idiotic. File a complaint with the Office of the chief of Staff. She needs some remedial training in bedside. Manner.

Re: ER Dr. Comments

My guess is that some female Drs have their own "issues" around the hyst subject, add that to a lack of tact and you get some really offensive comments. And you'd think if they were required to ask about pregnancy, they'd word it in a way like, sorry, I'm required to ask you, but..., at least that would be a less obnoxious way I would prefer. Sorry you've had to go through all this.

Re: ER Dr. Comments

Sometimes people speak out of turn and it is not until later that they realize that they may have hurt someone's feelings. I can do that. Maybe not on this subject but I have been sorry at what I have said to someone.
With that being said...
That Doc was wrong.
Age has nothing to do with this choice. Pain, health and quality of life is what matters when we make our choice. We make our Best choice with the info we have at the time. Our choices are not wrong, Just the best we can do at the time.
I would not let her bother you. She has no real clue what you have been thru and what lead to your choice. Sometimes people can just be dumb.
praying for Healthy healing for you...

Re: ER Dr. Comments

I had a trip to the ER my home health nurse sent me there because the hole in the incision was getting bigger. I was there four hours it was a waste of my time and one of the thing they did was get blood for a pregency test. I reminded them I had a TAH and they still wanted to take the test. What a waste of time and money.

Unfortunately for those of us who find the question hurtful, yes. Of course it's best to be sure, and that's why they do it.
