My trip to the ER lastnight...

Apr 16, 2010 - 7 comments

All day yesterday I was hurting in my lower abdominal and pelic area.  As the day went on, it got worse.  So about 5pm my husband, Myra nd I packed up and left.  We sat in that waiting room 5 HOURS before I was called back.  I had a share a room with a older couple, thats how packed the trama area was!

After waiting for the couple to leave, that's when everything started.  I had a pelvic exam- and low and behold, they couldn't find my IUD strings!!  My cervix was red- and the doctor just thought it was a bladder infection-

My bloodwork all came back negative, no bladder infection- so he said to call this morning to schedule an U/S to make sure the IUD was still in place and to see where it was- if it was still there.  

I got a call back from my doctor this morning- like 3 times.  He wants a X-ray done to make sure it wasn't dislogged or if its still in my abdomin, that it was still in my uterus and not harming my internal organs outside the uterus.  

So now I'm just completely freaked out- My moms side of the family (My Grandmother, 2 Aunts and my Mom) all have hysterectomies.  So I'm not sure if this whats happening...
If the IUD is embedded into my uterus, I need it surgically removed or if its at a place where they can get it (if its even there), I'll need forceps.  

Yesterday was a great day that just turned bad for me.  Its so scary!!  I just hope its there, the strings are just up in my uterus and I'll walk out without anyhing needing to get done.  

My X-ray is at 2:45pm EST and U/S at 3:30pm...I'll update when I get home

I had an x-ray and u/s done on Friday.  My doctor told me after they were done with the tests to go to his office afterwards so I could get my results.  I walked up to that floor after going to two other floors before that and they said he left for the day.  OMG, I was so pissed!!  I went up the ER where they told me to go originally before my doctor suck his nose into my file-  Thats when they told me I had fluid surrounding my IUD.  They don't have a clue whats causing it-

Then yesterday I got a call from my doctor saying "It looks like the IUD might be in place and you have a cyst on your left ovary.  I'll be taking a better look at you when I see you Monday.  If you're in pain over the weekend, feel free to come back to the ER."

They said me a paper home on Friday saying to return to the ER or my doctor in 1-5 days and they gave me 10 vicodin pills for the weekend.  I'm NOT taking pills because I'm still b/f Myra.  I'm not going to stop feeding her over something so dumb that should of been doubt with on Thursday.  I have them just incase I get it removed and if anything else happens where I might need them.  I'm fine when I lay down, but its tough when I have the four kids-  My husband has been good enough to take work off on Friday and tomorrow-  He's going with me tomorrow because my doctor will NOT do anything about anything I've told him-  Just like during Myra's pregnancy-  He said, "You're just a worrisome person is all"  BS!!!!!!  Not putting up with his crap anymore.  They should of gave me answers instead of sending me home with meds.

The doctor I seen on Friday that read my results she told me that my doctor has NO RIGHT to tell me that he's rather have me use the IUD instead of getting my tubes tied.  She said it was my decision, NOT his!  FINALLY, someone who listens to me- guess all I needed was a woman to talk to.  She told me to tell him how I feel- but everytime I do, he just doesn't listen- It's stressful.  Thats why I'm happy to see my DH going with me tomorrow- I can't take another 4 years of this!

I'm so sorry that you are going through all of this stuff.  I can't believe your doctor is such a jerk.  Is there anyway you can get in touch with the doctor that you talked to on Friday and get in to see her or have her recommend someone else you could go to?  I'm really glad that your husband is going too.  Hopefully he can make your doctor listen to what you have to say!!  It makes me so mad when doctors act like this.  We know if something is wrong.  WE KNOW OUR BODIES BETTER THAN ANYONE!!!  Good luck tomorrow and please let us know what happens.

Thanks girls- I had DH go in with me and my doctor decided to just take out the IUD.  He said it was sitting on top of my cyst causing the pain and the fluid was from a rutured cyst- So as of right now, NO BC for me- but DH is getting fixed ;)  I'm not bleeding like I thought I would either, just spotting alittle, if that.  

Can get any better then this =)
