I had my first child here at 16, didn't realize how bad the experience was until later when sharing my labor and delivery story. Most women can't believe how I was treated, I thought it was normal, it wasn't. They made me strip down to nothing saying they would come off anyway. They refused to give me anything for pain, I was allowed naproxen, something I could've bought at the drug store.
I had Nexplanon implanted in my arm, its supposed to be there 3 years, great. I bled for 3 months straight, would go through 2 super tampons in an hour. Doubled over in pain, felt like someone was stabbing me. Doctor said it was normal, don't worry about it. I spent a lot of time in the ladies room in pain, and unable to do my job. The doctor was angry with me but I told her I would rather her take it out before they have to scoop out the parts of me that make me a woman. She was angry, and talked down to me.
I was diagnosed with a treatable disease and the nurses were by the door talking about me like I wasn't a person.
I've met a lot of good nurses and doctors here, they don't stay that way. I'm not sure if it's my age or my race they find so deplorable. As a patient I was left with very little dignity and treated with very little respect.
There is a lot that they aren't teaching these people they let loose to care for people who seem to need it the most.
Still as unreliable an not helpful as they've always been. No one could tell me if they were in the network, passed around to 4 different people. I was going to get his referral sent over but the lady in internal medicine told me he would have to be seen in pediatrics before they would see him. He was seen by pediatrics on base that's how we got the referral.
