It just keeps getting sunnier

So the pain, cramping, and bleeding post D&C has gotten really horrific. I'm sitting in the emergency room waiting to see someone. When I told the triage nurse the issues, his response was "we'll did you call your doctor?" When I told him that I didn't, he responded with "why not?" He was slightly rude actually. Hmm why not, well how about the fact that you  can't actually talk to the doctor, you leave a message and they eventually call back. The discharge papers for surgery said to go to emergency if these things started. Besides, I'm in severe pain, bleeding profusely, and can barely stand for two minutes without feeling like I'm going to pass out. I actually ran into the EMT who helped me on Tuesday while waiting for triage and he said I did the right thing by coming here. 

So far everyone who was here when I got here has gone in, including people who were obviously not in pain. I look like shot warmed over and feel like I'm going to pass out.

The nurse said that I should have called my doctor because she knows what she did to me. Asshole it was a D&C, it's not a mystery what she did to me!

I just feel like sometimes the complaints of pain and bleeding are not taken seriously by male medical staff... I would love for them to bleed out their penis and cramp heavily, just for one day to see what it is like... A little compassion please!

This fucking sucks!



Oh shit...I'm so sorry that you're going through this AND that you have to deal with an asshole nurse on top of it. Please keep me updated on how you're doing and if you need anything, let me know!


Oh my god, I can't believe that guy! I'm sending as many positive thoughts as I can muster to you and very much hope that you get some compassion and answers soon. xoxo


Don't question yourself going to emerg and if the nurse says anything else tell him that was your discharge instructions. It drives me nuts when people say stuff with what can only be the intention of making you feel worse.

I hope you get some relief, and soon.

Give feedback to the Charge Nurse. I've spent a lot of years in healthcare and the supervisors need to know. Unexcusable bedside manner.

Sorry this is so rough. Not fair!
