I had a total abdominal hysterectomy 10 years ago. So I went to my doctor yesterday and had the most awkward conversation. It went something like this...
Me: I think I need to see a gyno.
Nurse: Oh? Why do you think that?
Me: I think I karate kicked my hoohah out.
Which lead to a lot of questions and hysterical laughing. We were joking around and what not, which made me feel better BUT, I found out that those lady parts CAN really fall out.
Being as my doctor is a guy... and I would trust him for anything except the neither regions, and I really felt uncomfortable having him look at my parts, and I was too embarrassed after admitting that I might have made my junk protrude and I am too embarrassed to go back... and the GYN appointment still isn't set yet... I have been looking for answers and I can't find them.
It's getting uncomfortable to walk. I am not bleeding or anything but it's really uncomfortable. It's bothers me to sit too. And the bulge is a touch bigger...
At what point does this become a medical emergency? Because I am not going to the ER unless I am heaped at the top of the triage pile or I'm dying. It took me a month to go to the doctor in the first place.
I am such a private person that I always said there is no way I am voluntarily letting anyone check out my stuff unless it's falling out. Only I was being funny... I didn't think it's really happen.
And Now I am wondering... how long is too long to wait to get help while I am waiting for the GYN appointment? Do I wait util I can't stand the pain anymore? Until I can walk into the ER and hold up a mass of stuff and say "this fell out"? Is there some warning sign to look for?
Any advice? Suggestions? Personal experiences?
