SecretAgentWoman: A gynecologist that can't figure out a mother is 14 weeks pregnant before surgery should never be allowed to practice medicine again. WTF?


True, but a woman who still "wants" a boy shouldn't get a hysterectomy.

/also, it's the Daily Mail, so chances are the 'mom' was actually a sick chimpanzee or something

KrispyKritter: i'm thinking in the real world when things like this happen the Dr.'s keep their frickin' mouths shut so as not to get sued out of a career.


Really. And you know what? She'd be better off if she never found out. You can't, uh, put the toothpaste back in the tube.

Anyone ever read about that Australian doctor who removed a woman's ENTIRE VAGINA (seriously -- look it up) when she was only supposed to get getting a cyst taken off?

Doctors are a-holes. That's why I will never consent to genital surgery without it being abundantly clear that the doctor is ONLY going to do what I instructed him to do.

I feel terrible for the woman, but to go on a slight tangent, I've never fully understood people who had kid after kid after kid all in an attempt to get one of a certain gender. If you're that obsessed with it, I would think adoption would have greater appeal.

I realize that's not a cheap or easy process, but it's gotta be cheaper and easier than giving birth to several others of the "wrong" gender.

david_gaithersburg: Farking UK healthcare. On the plus side, it probably keeps their population in check.


Better than ours, as I understand it. Not flawless, but pretty efficient.

Don't act dumb. She didn't expect to be pregnant, she wasn't trying to get pregnant. She went to the doctor to have an operation concerning her reproductive system.

It's common sense to do a pregnancy test on her before the surgery.

and therefore why would she be upset about the operation being a success?
did expect?
did expect that having sex could lead to a baby?
STRANGE, they said she already had children. You would think after 3 children that you would learn that SEX leads to BABIES.

14 weeks? So she did have he period for 3+ months, AFTER having sex?
Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm I wonder what could be the reason for that.

WHY was she have the Hysterectomy? so that she couldnt get pregnant anymore?
Yes, I know, without details it could have been endo or any one of a billion other reasons.
But in the end, she had no expectation of a baby when she went to have her uterus taken out.

WHY is it that no one is responsible anymore?
IF a baby was so important, why did she have the operation to start with?
WHY was she extra careful about getting tested before the surgery??

Sick and tired of the "it is someone else's fault" syndrome.
I guess the best thing happened, aborting the baby. She would have raised a terrible child.

meh
whatever
boohooo poor mommy

Atypical Person Reading Fark: Again, gynecologists routinely offer hysterectomies to uncomfortable women


Oh, I know a lot of uncomfortable women. This could go big!

RandomRandom: What do they call the guy who finished last in his class at medical school?

Doctor.

A certain percentage of doctors should be riffed out of the profession every year. Sure they've spent half a lifetime learning to be doctors, but some of them just suck at it and need to have their license revoked. The medical community protects their own, it's hard to get bad doctors out of medicine. In the US, it's nearly impossible, they just keep moving down the food chain. First they'll move to other states, then when no state board will have them, military, native American reservations, prisons, private prisons.

When customers can get more information on the quality of a home repair expert than a human repair expert, the system is farked.


Ooooookay. Was your family raped by a pack of wild doctors?

I had periods about once every 12-18 months, so there was no way to use that particular metric to tell if I was pregnant.

Being pregnant (especially more than once) can cause discomfort. The main thing that gynecologists want to do with you if you say you're "uncomfortable" down there is jerk out your uterus. They tell you, somewhat enigmatically, that your "sex life will improve" and your husband will be happy.

Some women think this may not be completely true and that it's somewhat similar to a man having his scrotum removed. Some kind of loss of sensation and...well...something else.

At any rate, it's not surprising they jerked it out. That's what they do. It takes quite a fighting spirit to keep them from yanking it out, especially if you've got three kids (seriously, who needs four kids, boys or no boys?)
