Personal Space Please…

29 Oct


Since I have been talking so much about my abdominal wound lately I will lighten the mood and tell you a humorous/ disturbing story that happened to me a few weeks ago.

I had a doctor appt with a doctor not associated with my Mastectomy or reconstruction. It was for something entirely different. Well, this doctor knew about my surgery prior to having it done. I was in his office, and I had my wound VAC on.

We started talking about every thing that was going on and how the surgery went. Just a little side note I had accidentally left home without my bra on and went to my appointment. Yes I can do that now ( jealous?) šŸ™‚

After we finished talking about the surgery the doctor walked over to me. I thought the he was coming over to listen to my heart and lungs but instead the perv. open the collar of my t-shirt and looked down my shirt and said “nice.” I did not know if I should be complimented or offended. When I told my husband about it he was defiantly offended.

Why does crazy crap always happen to me? Moral of the story is always wear a bra to your doctor appointment. šŸ™‚

    Wow – that is not only disrespectful but also sexual harrassment! Do you know this person well? If so maybe forgettable but if jsut a regular provider/patient relationship I would consider looking for a new dr!
    I think back to the gyn I had when I was 18-22 – he was inappropriate in things that he said, etc – but I didnt really pick up on it at the time, I think more because of my naivety – but I wouldnt let that fly today (then again I only go to female gyn’s now šŸ™‚ )

    Totally offended! I can’t even believe that! Although I do know the mastectomy process and how it does feel like we just lift our shirts so easily, all of the time, for everyone, but this is definitely crossing the line!
