This is the first article I’ll write about my experience with an OB/GYN who was completely unprepared for my pregnancy and made the most insensitive and ignorant comments.
The first doctor I went to had no clue about my health.
She had to be called and I was told that the baby was in intensive care and that I would be in intensive.
When she got there, I was so upset I screamed.
I said, “He’s going to take care of me and he won’t leave me alone.”
She said, that’s fine, but I need to get out of there now.
I don’t want to leave him, I don’t care if I die.
He didn’t even listen.
The next day she came back to me and said that I was fine, that I had no pain and that the pain was normal.
And I told her that I needed to go home.
She said that there’s no reason for me to leave.
I’m a woman, and I can’t go back there.
After two months, she said that she was not ready to let me go.
“It’s not like I’m going to be a virgin again,” she said.
My next OB/Gyn told me that my health was a concern, and that my symptoms were getting worse.
Later that day, she came to my house, told me I needed an ultrasound and said she would see me in about an hour.
I didn’t know that was the case.
This was in the middle of the night.
There was a nurse there, but she was only there for 10 minutes.
They told me to get dressed and I didn´t even know that I didn`t have my gowns on.
They didn’t explain what was wrong with me and I had to go back to my room and lie down in bed.
Then I was in there for three hours, and then I had an epidural, which I didn�t understand and I still don�t.
I couldn`t even open my eyes.
At that point, they did the ultrasound again, and again I was at the hospital and I couldn´t get the picture of what was happening.
For the first month, I thought I was going to die.
As the pregnancy progressed, the OB/gyn would tell me that I`d never be able to take my pills, and she told me she didn´tt even know what an epidural was.
She told me it was an injection and I told them it wasn`t going to happen.
During my first week of hospitalization, I didn’t get to see my daughter.
On the second day, I had a blood test and she gave me a urine test.
They did an ultrasound on my abdomen and found nothing.
In the third week, I saw my daughter again.
It was during the fourth week that they found out that my uterus was not normal.
They told me my cervix was dilated.
I was bleeding in my abdomen.
I had severe cramps.
I woke up in the hospital.
Im not going to let you go home, I am not going home, you will die.
I have been through so much.
We have tried to get help from friends and family, but we have had to do it on our own.
A few months later, I went home for the first time.
I wasn’t able to get the exam done.
My cervix had become dilated and it looked like I had been through a labor.
All my life, I’ve had this sense that if I go back, it’s going be over.
It was hard to be with my daughter, who is a beautiful girl who is like my little sister.
I am scared that she will die in the room with me.
But this is a reality.
If I can stay with her and watch her while I go home and nurse her, that will be my comfort.
It is very hard.
It really hurts to know that my daughter is going to live with me until the end.
What do you think?
Do you have any more stories about OB/Gynecologists?
