One more thing I forgot to put in yesterday's post (which is weird because it's the thing that most upsets me). I also asked Dr. C if the tissue after every D&C was tested for chromosome issues. She said it was not. It was just looking for anything abnormal. But, you know, if this happens again that can certainly be something we can get done if we'd like.
You mean this could have, and should have, been offered to us after every loss and it wasn't?! I can understand maybe not having it done the first time, but it for sure should have been done after that. Regardless, we should have been given that right to decide.
This was towards the end of my appointment (you know, when I was on the verge of tears and just wanted to get the heck out of there) so I just let it go. Not much I could do at that point anyway.
I went ahead and made the RE appointment (April 5th). When I called my ob/gyn's office today to have them forward my records, here's how the conversation went:
Office: Did Dr. C refer you there?
Office: Okaaaay.....so you didn't talk to her about this then?
Me. I brought it up to her yesterday, but she didn't seem receptive to the idea, so I just made the appintment myself.
Are you freaking kidding me? Stop acting like your office can dictate who goes where to see which doctor. If I want to seek out another opinion elsewhere, that is my right as a patient. You cannot tell me where I can and can't go. Both Jeff and my dad made the comment last night that maybe I should just seek out a new ob/gyn regardless. I'm starting to think maybe they are right. The last two days with this office has left a really bad taste in my mouth.
Please God, let me get better service and care than this with the RE. If I'm told at our first appointment that I'm making a much bigger deal out of this than I need to, I don't know what I'll do.....
Thank you all so much for your supportive comments. Just when I start to think I"m going bat sh!t crazy, your words remind me that I'm not. It reminds me this is a big deal that should be taken seriously.
