The HooHa Doc

I love my gynecologist. I've been seeing him since about 2 years before Buddy was born.

The first time I saw him and I was "in the position", he had me laughing so hard, I worried I might pee on him. He and I have been making each other laugh for 15 years now.

In fact, I wouldn't recommend any other doctor in this area to any female friend of mine. But, if you want an "all business" hooha doc, he is not the one.

He is great, his staff is great - the only thing that bothers me is that he is popular, so the waiting room is always packed - and when the pre-recorded call comes in and reminds you of your appointment and to keep your entourage to one person only and most of the patients have all 12 kids, their mother, mother in law, grandma and baby daddy in tow, it's a little annoying. Even so, they get around to all patients quickly.

You know, for all the problems I had with both kids while pregnant (the 2 keepers of the bunch of other failed pregnancies), I think the Evil Twin accompanied me to maybe 6 appointments total. Not to say he didn't care, but I didn't need the peanut gallery with me for an appointment. I have a good memory and can recite all the instructions later at home.

Anyhoodle, I'm gearing up for my partial hysterectomy, had some tests done a few weeks ago (all normal), so I didn't even have to get naked or anything. The doc and I just talked about my options and they will be contacting our insurance to get coverage info and set me up!

Amazingly enough, I am so excited. The office is closed and there will be no office occupants ever again.

After everything I went thru to get them both here, I feel like I'm entitled to some peace. I know - the Evil Twin had the big V when Sissy was about 9 months old, but he never went to the recheck and frankly, I'm sick of buying feminine need products.

I've been doing all this for 30 years. I'm ready for a break. :-)

  7. Good luck to you! Most of my female relatives have ended up with hysterectomies, partial and full, and NONE of them are sorry or regret it.

    I only wish I'd had the presence of mind to ask the surgeon to rip mine out when I had my appendectomy. Oh well.

    I hope you have a quick recovery!
