Why Gynecologists Have a Job

Posted Jan 31 2013 6:45pm
I mean, besides birthing babies.  This GYN is the nicest, most caring GYN you will ever find.  And I still hated my appointment today.

Yes, I had to strip and get into a soft cotton gown, and cover myself with a paper cloth, and sit on a rather uncomfortable exam table with foreboding stirrups.  But before that, we talked about what was and what wasn't possible.

We agreed that she would try to do the vaginal exam and PAP smear today.

Besides that, she urged me to take a calcium and vitamin D supplement.  I had actually gotten that because of Dr. Miller's urging, but I haven't taken it in awhile.  I'll go back to that.  Dr. Poddatoori gave me a data sheet today which tells me what my dosage should be.  50-65 not taking full-dose estrogen = 1500 mg/day.

And she gave me a referral back to Dr. Hosseini for a colonoscopy.

We agreed that I would come back every 6 months for this PAP smear and vaginal examination. Every six months. Let me tell you right now, I went right to the donut shop after this exam.  Yes, it was a two-donut day.
