This is how my appt. With my gyno went yesterday. Doctors are blowing me off & I am just getting really annoyed & angry! Pleaseâ¦i know this is long, but just encourage me somehow. Thanks!!!
Too make a long story short, the gyn (male) decided that there is nothing wrong with me by just feeling inside me (like within a few minutes). Iâve been having light cramping (seems like my period is starting) & light lower back pain for almost 4 weeks (sunday). My period ended on friday last week & started on wednesday (yes, a 2 day period which was very light & short). He checked my reproductive organs by sticking his hand/fingers (whatever) up my vagina. He didn't give me any other reasons to what it could be. If I wouldn't have questioned him about what else it could be, then he would have walked out then. Of course, he still didn't give me any other reasons except to say that I didn't give him enough info. I think he thinks i'm making this up. I told him that it was period-like cramping. I showed him where @ the beginning, but I told him again. He wanted to know whether or not I was taking meds for it. I told him that it hasnât been that bad just more of an annoyance because I do not know why. First of all, though, I feel that I should not be taking any meds for it because almost 4 weeks of it means there is something wrong & they should try to get to the bottom of it. Secondly, if I was pregnant (slight chance), then it wouldn't be healthy for the baby. Thirdly, I forgot to tell him this, but I have been having gas a lot in the past week and a half (not usual except right before period & during). These cramps feel like i'm getting ready to start except when I am about ready to have a bm (sometimes it hurts more & sometimes it doesn't, but not unusual because I have this during my periods, too) or I have gas. I can tell when i'm going to have gas. The cramping gets a little more intense & my lower back hurts a little more, but after the gas is gone, then we're back to the light cramping. I did have constipation a few weeks ago, but that was intense cramping all over abdomen & back, but I have been taking fiber since & havenât had an issue since (i told him this, too). I told him a few other things including how my boobs changed last week for no reason & I have veins on my chest. He said, "they just do that." I said, "for no apparent reason??" he said, "yeah." he wouldn't even give me an explanation as to why. I have changed bc already (this past sunday) to one that never bothered me before & still have everything I had before, so it is not the bc (from a low dose--mircette to a higher dose--ovcon 35) or it would have at least let up or even disappeared by now. He acts like i'm not pregnant (without even checking anything) which is fine...Maybe i'm not, but he should at least check by doing a blood test to rule it out. His final words were, "ok, well, i'll tell your surgeon to take pics of your reproductive organs when he does the surgery. Then we'll see if there is anything wrong."
he didn't even address my uti. Argh! I have had a uti since wednesday afternoon, but i've been taking cranberry pills & azo (uti pain killers) since wed. Afternoon. He literally almost walked out the door without giving me any information about how my pee came out. He didn't even address it. I could not believe it! If I hadn't asked about it, he would have left! When I did ask, he said your urine was normal except for one little thing. I said, "well, then why does it hurt when I finish peeing? I know what a uti is because I had one a month and a half ago. I have one." he said, "how often are you urinating?" I said, "yesterday, I was urinating every 5-10 min., but since I started taking azo (i gave it to him @ this point) i've been doing better.â he read the box & then said, "ok...I'll go ahead & give you a prescription." I almost wanted to scream! I was so ticked off that he didn't even address it. I do not think i'll be going back to him. :x
thanks for letting me vent! I have gb surgery on the 15th, so iâm going to call my surgeon & ask if they really want to make sure iâm not pregnant. If they do, I will ask them to please do a blood test (i have to go in a few days early for some pre-surgery things). They were already planning on doing a urine test, but I want to be positive that iâm not. Then, we can go from there. You know? Weâll see how it goes.
I know what you mean about doctors lately. They don't seem very caring about your situations or very willing to get down to the sutuation. I am seeing a fertility doc right now. He is putting me on fertility meds(clomid) without doing many tests. The only thing he did was give me a pap smear and a vaginal exam. I think right now he is just taking a shot in the dark. He told me he doesn't care to actually rule out any problems. He just wants to trick my body into ovulating. I really hope he is right and we are not wasting time. If I were you if the pain doesn't go away I would switch doctors because it does seem like he is not into treating the problem. Good luck!
If I were you I would definatly change dr's. Also to me I find lady dr's to be a lil better becuase there lady's and know more im sure when they went to school they paid more attention becuase there lady's and im sure wanted to know more about there bodies as well. Men don't care and if all that was wrong he should have made sure you weren't pregnant that also sounds like a mc the cramping then the bleeding as well, you may have had one and don't even know it. I hope that you have went to another dr by now.
