It was his phone, because the first time I asked him to speak up, he did for about two words, and then he was quiet again.. I think he might have had a headset on that was too far from his mouth or something, because he COULD tweak it, but it was still inconsistent. Still, his raising his temper to me was totally out of line.
I doubt my OB will request a cath.. I seriously have had hundreds perhaps thousands of bladder infections. Most of my pregnancies I am on antibiotics.. In 2003, I met with a kidney specialist (they do the kidneys and whole urinary tract), and had the ink test and there is no structural reason for it. The specialist told me that a certain percent of women have recurrent bladder infections, and of those another percent of them get them for purely "chemical" reasons, and that's what's wrong with me. At the time I was actually praying it was structural, because I would have been THRILLED to have a surgery just "fix" the problem for good, but no such luck.
Did I mention I HATE the "modern" medical community? The fact that I believe it is lead by overzealous jerks who believe they are G-d? I do. I have fired more doctors in my life than I have found ones that I end up happy with.. seriously it is a negative curve. And ultimately I don't see "women's health" making grand strides until more women demand change.. but the medical community (by and large) is too busy making bucks by soliciting me to buy products that "enlarge my member" than to give any serious thought to improving the lives of women.
But I will be quiet now. Obviously I am too ticked off (and emotional) to be coherent. :
Hon, I think you're being MORE than coherent. I cannot imagine the anger, frustration and sadness you're feeling right now.
(My concerns about the "I can't hear you" part of your previous post were about stroke issues and such, but obviously that's not an issue at all).
His losing his temper at you was very unprofessional and rude. I'm in your corner, they are supposed to work for us, giving us their help, not order us around or treat us like disobedient children.
You know your body best. Please keep taking care of yourself. You're worth it.
