Wow. How the hell does a doctor mistake a vagina for a rectum!?

I had a friend years ago who underwent a colonoscopy while fully awake. Her gastroenterologist stated she did not need to be under anesthesia for the procedure. Not long into the procedure, she experienced such pain she begged them to stop. The doctor refused stating the procedure was already started and it wasn’t stopping.

She screamed and cried through the entire procedure and no one did anything to ease her pain.

Turned out, the doctor perforated her bowel during the procedure which caused the pain. Had she not gone to the ER that evening it would have killed her.

The days of doctors not listening to women need to end. It’s ridiculous.

I think, therefore, I write. ccuthbertauthor@gmail.com /Posts may contain affiliate links.
