The medical profession sure isn't what it used to be!
Definitely go to another doctor!!! I could tell you personal horror stories!
Patients have to be their own advocates nowadays!!!
Get copies of her records & surgery report before she goes if you can.
Your poor aunt, how scary for her, not being able to communicate easily!
That's awesome that she thought to take a picture! What a strong, amazing lady!
She sounds like one smart cookie! I love her spunkiness!!!
Take that picture along to the doctor too!
What kind of doctor would send a patient home with pain killers that has bleeding???
I'm guessing, because she's under 50, she's never had a colonoscopy.
Do you know if they did an ultra sound before deciding to do surgery?
The reason I'm asking is because if she had female problems & pain,
they may have assumed that's what was causing the pain.
But it could be the problem is in her bowel or some place else,
& they just thought the pain was from the female problems!
Any doctor worth their salt, would order a colonoscopy immediately!!!
Bright blood is from some type of bleed out.
There are many things it could be.
It could be as simple as hemorrhoids or as serious
as cancer or a perforation that happened during the surgery.
The blood loss alone can cause problems!
Do you mind if I ask where in general you are from? Even just the country is fine.
I don't have much faith in the medical profession anymore,
because of all the incompetence we've encountered just in my immediate family!!!
Keep trying until you get the answer!
Don't let them talk down to you!
Let us know what happens!
