Response to Metalmom (Original post)

Thu May 9, 2019, 10:16 PM

57. Before I went unconscious, I knew I couldn't be pregnant.

But if I had been pregnant, I would not have wanted to have it re-implanted. I couldn't have given consent to an experimental procedure either way, as I went into shock on the way to the hospital. I was serious in my studies at the time, was too young to care for a baby, and the human body can only take so much trauma at once.

When I awoke, I had one less ovary due to an ovarian torsion. The gynecologist who performed the surgery was extremely nice to me. Odd, because she looked like the same the doctor that yelled accusations that I must be lying about my nonexistent sex life and that it must be an ectopic pregnancy. Why did she wait for my blood pressure to drop to send me to imaging, more than 24 hours after being admitted? Some explanation about watchful waiting is all I got from her. Delay and doubt can be deadly in these emergencies.

Luckily, I survived the bleeding out into my ovary, and her judgment, as she ultimately saved my life.

These types of events are complex, and I am unnerved that any legislator thinks it is appropriate to interject his false morality and junk science into decisions made between patient and doctor.
