So long to crappy D is right!! D (my OBGYN no more) has given me nothing but trouble. I got to thinking and looking back at my posts why did I not ditch her sooner??? All the signs were there in front of me but I did not see them! Lets take a look back......
1st visit: D = "Sorry about your miscarriage. I am sure it is nothing to worry about." Me = "This is my third miscarriage!! I am sure it is something. I have PCOS and Endometriosis as well." D = "Oh your third? Well there must be a problem." Me = "What are we going to do to find out what is wrong?" D = "I am ordering blood work for you and you need to go to the lab for a blood draw." Me = "OK so we are going to find out what is going on then? Will you treat me for my PCOS as well." D = "Oh yes the PCOS. I will be getting you a script for that." Me = "GREAT" D = "Go have the blood work done first tho." Me = "I will go to the lab now."
2nd encounter with D: RING RING RING Me = "Hello" D = "Hello Jennifer. I got the results of your blood work." Me = "Good" D = "your HCG levels dropped so it was your third miscarriage." Me = "Yes I know. But what do we do now?" D = "You need to come in for another blood draw in 1 week." Me: "OK just tell me the day and I will be there." D = " In one week the Lab will have your paper work. Just go to the lab and have the draw." Me = "OK will do."
3rd item with D: Me: "I am hear for the blood work for D." Lab = "I do not seem to have your paper work." Me = "D told me it would be here." Lab = "Jennifer let me go check with D about what you are getting blood work for." Me = "OK" WAIT WAIT WAIT Lab = "OK we are checking your HCG again." Me = "OK" POKE BLOOD TUBE Lab = "All done! D will call you tomorrow with the results." Me = "OK"
4th encounter with D: RING RING RING Clinic = "Hello" Me = "I am calling for Doc. D she did not call me yesterday with the results of my blood work like I was told." Clinic = "Please hold." D's nurse = "Jennifer sorry D did not call you. Your HCG is now at 0 so yes it was a natural miscarriage this time and no D&C is needed." Me = "I am glad I do not have to have another D&C." D's nurse = "Come back in 6 weeks for a bunch of tests (blood work) so we can see what is causing this." Me = "Will the lab have my paper work this time?" D's nurse = "Oh Yes! They will get it a week before so we know they have it." Me = "OK I will be there."
5th item with D: Me = "Hello, I am here for blood work for D." Lab = "your name please." Me = "Jennifer" Lab = "Are you sure you are to get blood work today." Me = "Yes I am suppose to have a complete panel for recurrent miscarriages." Lab = "Let me check with D." Me = "OK" WAITE WAITE WAITE Lab = "OK I have your paper work now." Me = "About time." Lab = "So you have had 2 pregnancies right?" Me = "NO, I have had 4 pregnancies and one resulted in my son. I have had three miscarriages." Lab = "OH, OK we are taking 12 vials of blood today." Me = "12???" Lab = "Yep" Me = "OK" POKE BLOOD TUBE 12 TIMES Lab = "All done." Me = "when will the results be back?" Lab = "D will call Monday with the results." Me = "OK"
6th thing with D: RING RING RING Clinic = "Hello" Me = "I need to speak to D about my test results." Clinic = "Please hold" Me = "OK" Clinic = "D is not available I will put you in the answering system so you can leave her a message." Me = "OK" Me = "I am leaving a message for D. She has not called me with the results of my blood work yet. Please call me back" CLICK
7th thing with D: Left another message
8th: Left another message.
9th thing with D: D = "Jennifer you need to see an endo you have MTHFR." Me = "I have what??" D = "MTHFR I am sending you a copy of your blood work. Go see Endo and he can treat the MTHFR" Me = "OK when do I go see him?" D = "In 2 weeks I will get you an appointment." Me = "OK"
10th D = "I got you an appointment for this Tuesday." Me = "WOW that quick?" D = "Yea I was surprised he could see you that fast."
Endo = "I only see people that are 20 weeks pregnant and over. I do not see any one before 20 weeks." Me = "OK did you look at my blood work?" Endo = "YES, I do not even know what this plasminogen act inhibitor-1 is. But it is high so there is an issue there. You need to see an infertility specialist or a RE." Me = "here is my research from the Internet on it." (handed the paper work to him) Endo = " Well..... I see .... Yes ..... You have a hormone deficiency and this needs to be treated. You are on the right track here. Yes .... Yes you are. I will tell D who you need to see so she can get you over with the right doctor." Me = "I paid a $25 co pay for that?" Endo = "You paid a co pay? Me = "YES" Endo = "Go up front and get a refund." Me = "Thank you"
11th D = "I do not like what the Endo told you. I will check with a friend of mine that is a better Endo." Me = "OK"
12th The visit from hell!!!! D does not know how to prescribe MTHFR meds. She does not know how to do hormone therapy. She is just a BAD OB!!
Got to get in to see the best RE in the state "H". I have my appointment and I am on the waiting list to get in sooner. So looking back I should have ditched her long ago. You live and learn and then learn some more. LOL
