Yesterday I had a Gyn appt with a diff doc because my normal doc wasn't there well this doc was number 1 running an hour and 20 minutes behind schedule. So when he finally is ready and comes in the room it is time for my husband to go back into work, so my husband couldnt stay for the appt. Then the doctor doesn't even do an internal or anything he only has the vol 2 of my medical records he doesn't ask me for my volume 1 (my medical records are so big since I have been in the military that I have 2 medical records) So he starts looking throught the medical records and says that he cant find my first surgical report and then says that on the second surgical report they stated that they did not see any visible endometriosis (because I had just had the 6 month cycle of lupron) but it did state that there could be the microscopic cells of endometriosis which could not be seen with the naked eye. So then this a** h*le says to me IF YOU EVEN HAVE ENDOMETRIOSIS!!!!!!! what? What? if I even have endo? I have had it for 8 years now I know what it feels like I know what it is and I know what I have! He told me maybe it is just Chronic Pelvic Pain? And then all you do to treat that is go on anti depressents which trust me I am on! And then he said I am on way to much pain medication and it sounds like I am becoming addicted and I used someones quote on here saying that no I am dependent because I need them to do my job and live my life but I do not take them just for fun or to get high I take them because I need them for my quality of life. So then I left out of there crying because he was basically calling me a liar and saying that he didn't believe me! oh and he said it would have been nice if your husband could have put some time away for this appt. because this is important. I called my husband hysterically crying telling him what happened and he was so upset that he had to leave and that I was treated like that. So I went digging throught my first medical record breaking all sorts of rules in the military taking my record out of the records room while trying to make a scanned copy of the 1st surgery pictures because there was no report however there was an office visit after that surgery where the same docrtor who performed the surgery talks about my endometriosis and I really just wanted to take it to his office an slam it down on his desk and say here here is my endometriosis is this proof enough for you? So needless to say he did not give me any pain med's so now I do not know what to do. I guess I might have to be making a trip to Mexico this long weekend!!!!! Sorry Everyone I just wanted to vent...Thanks for listening.
