health simple surgery???

Hi Im lisa, Im relatively healthy, at least i was until last August when I needed a Hysterectomy, i havent been right since!
 
For the last 10 years I suffered from Menorrahgia, (abnormal uterine bleeding). Do to the fact that I am a single mom, with an average income, and usually lacking health insurance, I lived with this problem for quite a long time before it became a necessity for me to seek medical care. Last July I managed to hemmorage and land in the hospital. My hemoglobin was dangerously low from the blood loss, and it was discovered that i had a fibroid tumor wich was the culprit behind the bleeding. Well I sought care with the Doctor I thought I could trust. Let me elaborate... I work for a medical organization as a nurse, and the Medical Director of my clinic is the Doc I chose to Follow up with. He is an ob/gyn from Niagara Falls NY. Seeing as I have worked for this org for the last 3 years and have referred many patients to him I figured he was my best choice. What a mistake! He has his own private practice.
At first it seemed like he didnt have any reservation about the proceedure, he said " I preform this proceedure all the time its a piece of cake" he made me feel comfortable with the proceedure and I was confident in his ability to do it. He prescribed a load of meds to take until my surgery date, wich by the way took 2 months, Which also meant I had to have my period 2 more times! But the Doctor had a vacation planned and there isnt enough anesthesiologists available so... I had to wait. Needless to say, I bled like crazy again and was in the er just to be told to go home and wait for my surgery... fine.I finally had my surgery.
He never showed up the entire time i was in the hospital! I started to feel like I had a fever at around day 2 post surg. The nurses didnt seem to think it was a big deal and I was sent home, despite my own concerns that i was feverish and waking up in a pool of sweat every night. I was also in alot of pain and was having nausea and vomiting episodes from the pain meds i was on. After I was home for 1 day I had to call the doctor at his office to ask him how my surgery had been and he informed me that not only did I have a fibroid I also had an ovarian cyst the size of an apple! He said I should feel better soon and to let him know when I would like to return to work.
The next night i spiked a temp of 103 and felt like I had to poop an elephant and I called his office, they said well just take some laxatives and another pain pill and you will be fine. I was rushed to another hospital in the middle of the night because I was weak, hallucinatiing, sweaty and in excrutiating pain. At the hospital they found that I had an abcess in my incision line under the fat layer anout 15 cm in size it was a nasty infection and was advised by the ER doc to stay and be put on IV antibiotcs. They proceeded to call my doctor and he told them to send me home and he would manage my infection "out of his office" so i was sent home after they pumped me with abt through the iv.
I went into the doctors office the next day and the nurse practitioner said to me " oh well no matter how hard we try to keep a sterile field during surgery, sometimes things just fall in" She thought she was funny.... I didnt. I was put on huge doses of antibiotics again and was sent home to "get over it" about 1 week later i woke up to the most excrutiating pain once again right over the abcess area in my belly, I cant even put into words what it felt like except to say I WISHED for death.
This went on for about 4 hours, I had called the office screaming that I needed to go to the hospital and they told me if I did they would tell the er to send me home and to stop acting like a baby. I called the nurse a stupid fucking bitch and hung up. Finally the pain ceased but then I noticed a foul disgusting dicharge coming from my vagina, wich up to now hadnt given me any problems..It turns out that the incision up inside of my vaginal cuff had opened and the abcess in my abdomen started to drain out of there! As if i didnt have enough problems... I went through a month of hell with that and finally it stopped. I went back to the docs and they did an ultrasound and told me that everything was healed and apologized to me profusely and took me off the meds and sent me home to get on with my life.

2 days ago I was lying in my bed poking around my tummy because ive been feeling burning sensations in my muscle on the right side. Ive also noticed a bulging sensation and a hard bump. As i was feeling around i pushed out on my tummy and to my horror a grapefruit sized lump popped out of my gut. I went to my regular md yesterday just to be told that i have a huge incisional hernia and now my gut is popping out of the incision that never healed under my fat. I have to see a surgeon now and have yet another operation...i give up

      they either dont have a clue or just dont give a shit.I think he is more concerned with the insurance payment so he can plan his next vacation. Too bad he wasnt in Sri Lanka about a month ago.

        Kind of makes me wonder why you kept going back to this doctor. Everything isn't entirely the doctor's fault. Yes, his incompetence, as well as that of his staff is a factor. But your faith in him was also.

        I understand the professional inkling that would make you choose him as your surgeon but sorry, that doesn't mean they are good at what they do.

        Glad that another professional was able to help you out though.

          Well I did try to see another doctor but unfortunately the other doctor took one look at me and said "Im sorry but you really need to see the doctor who did the surgery"... in other words.. Im not touching you with a 40 foot pole and let the guy who did this clean up his own mess. Besides I was so ill and overwhelmed with the situation i wasnt exactly thinking clearly.

        Hey there! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site? I'm getting sick and tired of WordPress because I've had issues with hackers and I'm looking at options for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform. what day is easter this year 2019

    I tend to listen to peoples use of language and when someone speaks in inane cliches like "a piece of cake" I am already suspicious. When the person is supposed to be a professional. I know about callous doctors as the one I have been seeing for chronic pain has basically down-played my pain saying, "everyone has pain, I know I do." Yeah, well I doubt he has 4 slipped discs in the cervical spine. So I sought help from the VA, and they seem to be trying at least.

    The next time I learn a weblog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one. I mean, I do know it was my choice to read, however I actually thought youd have something attention-grabbing to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you could fix for those who werent too busy in search of attention. rizk casino

I understand what you are saying, but you just seem to have forgotten about that there are some other people within the world who see this issue for what it really is and might not agree with you.
