I am not sure if I am pitting my own stupidity here, or the Doctor who is responsible, but I am pissed at someone!
I have had a weird cyst growing on the back of my ear for a couple of months now. I was hoping it would just go away, so I put off going to the doctor as long as I could. A few days ago, I showed it to my neighbor, who is a nurse, and she told me I really needed to go in and have it checked. Well, today was the fateful day. When I arrived at the clinic, the front desk informed me my primary physician had to leave on an emergency, and Dr. Dipshit would be seeing me. Well, I had never seen Dr. Dipshit before, but all of the staff assured me he was an excellent doctor.
I am taken back to the waiting room, and Dr. Dipshit walks in. He seems like a pretty nice guy, takes a look at my ear, and mutters something about how he had never seen anything like this “weird cysty thingy” that seems to be growing from the back of my ear. He says since it is small, and it is an easy procedure, he could cut it off right now and send said weird cysty thingy in for a biopsy. As soon as I heard the words “weird cysty thingy” I should have ran for the door as fast as I could, but hearing the word biopsy frightened me a bit, so I figured the faster I could get it off of my body, the better.
We go back to a little room with a small table where I lie down. He tells me he is going to numb the area and then cut it off. It will take two minutes. He numbs my ear, and tells me he I will feel a little pressure. I feel the pressure, a ripping noise, and then Dr. Dipshit exclaims “OOPS”. He starts calling for a nurse, and I feel a weird warm sensation running down my neck. I can’t really explain it, but I know OOPS isn’t good, and so I lay as still as possible. A nurse comes in, looks at me, and says “FUCK! What the hell did you do!” Now I know it isn’t good. They start scrambling around for a bunch of stuff, and I am yelling at them to tell me what the hell is going on. Two more nurses enter, and another doctor. The nurses are telling me to be quiet and lay still, everything is going to be fine. The other doctor looks at my ear, tells Dr. Dipshit he screwed up real good and to get the hell outta there. He then, very calmly, starts working on my ear, while explaining that Dr. Dipshit apparently “slipped” and made a much larger incision than he intended to. He stops the bleeding and tells me that he would like to take me up to the hospital to have his friend, who is a plastic surgeon, take a look. OK. I still don’t know exactly what has happened, but the doctor tells me I am going to need a couple stitches, and everything should be fine.
One of the nurses drive me and the Doctor up to the hospital, where the plastic surgeon finishes stitching up my ear and giving me instructions on when I need to change the bandages, etc… I still haven’t had a look at my ear. I ask to be excused so I can use the restroom, and peel the gauze off. Apparently, when Dr. Dipshit “slipped”, he cut through approximately 1cm of the cartilage AND cut my earlobe in half. I almost passed out when I looked at it.
We drive back to the clinic so I can pick up my car, and Dr. Dipshit is waiting there for me. He hands me a prescription for motrin, and says, “Sorry. I have been having a bad day.” I gave him the evil bitch glare, then walked away before I tried to rip off something of his. YOU have been having a bad day!!! ASSHOLE! After cutting through my ear, he could have at least given me some percoset!
After all this, I received a phone call from my husband. He has been in Iraq for 363 days, and he will be home on Thursday. GREAT! Now, I have never been one for big expectations on military homecomings, but I will be greeting my husband with a big fucking bandage on my head. That HAS to be attractive! Plus, I forgot to ask when I should call back for the stupid biopsy results (they did eventually remove the cyst)
I was so stupid to let this doctor touch me, and the Doctor better learn that if he is having a fucking bad day, not to touch his patients!!!
