I read your note about the pain from adhesions. It is a terrible thing. I
have not been right since I had the TAH in January. She tried to say it's
irritable bowel. She laughed it off. Last night I wentback to the e.r. of
that hospital, and I had the same e.r. dr. I saw a few days after surgery.
He wasn't too happy that I came back. All he did was bloodwork, and tried
to say it is a colic. Bull!! Then he came back in, and was kind of
nasty,when he asked me why I didn't take the medicine she prescribed. I told
him that what she prescribed was Bentyl, which is constipating, and so is
Effexor. I told him I am angry that she took everything but 1 ovary when
there was nothing really wrong with the organs. He got a bit snotty and
said, "well, you must have signed forit." I'd like to report him., if I knew
where. Also, sometime before I had the surgery , the male nurse practitioner
asked ,"Did you get your uterus ripped out yet?" He should be reported. Of
course, if if isn't on paper in a Drs. report, it doesn't exist in their
eyes. I am having even more problems going. I went to see Dr. Redan,
yesterday, but I came away even more discouraged, because he said to wait 3
months to be sure you're healed, then maybe he'd take a look. He looked at
the incision, and pressed around it some.
He was very nice, but I only saw him for 10 minutes at the most, after going
60 miles. After hurrying to fax in forms to them, to supposedly be set up
for the adhesiolysis. I have had more pain today. The little bit of stool I
do pass, is small, painful, and it gets worse.Even to pass gas. I don't want
to end up with an ostomy. Did you ever have a n.g. tube? Are they really
painful to have inserted, or uncomfortable?
How would you feel if a Dr. or nurse practitioner said that to you? What
would you do?
