I wasn’t sure if this should go in General Questions, Mundane and Pointless, or The Pit. If it needs to be moved, have at it.
Okay…so menopause hasn’t been all that good to me. The doctor decided to do an endomitrial biopsy to determine if the dreaded “atypical” cells are present.
“Yeah, it’ll be a little uncomfortable, so you might want to take a Motrin before you come in.”
Jesus Fucking Christ. It was A LOT uncomfortable, to the point where I was near screaming. I asked for pain meds and she said it wouldn’t be necessary. I asked her two more times, and she refused to give them to me…before or after the procedure. I spoke to two other women who had the procedure, and both of them said it was pretty sucky.
What’s the deal? Why would she put someone through pain if she doesn’t have to? Can a medical person please explain this to me? What. Fucking. Gives?
Anyone else out there in Old Broad Land have this done? What was your experience?
