(OT-Take ibuprofen) & BM now accusing us of abuse
DH did come to the appointment. SIL jumped on to take over pick up for SS so DH could go straight from work. We were in the room for maybe 15 minutes with the actual doctor. She did another pelvic exam, felt the same as before and sadly I WAS feeling better until she did the exam. Now it's back again.
She said it wasn't a hernia but the other doctor had to get it checked to rule it out as a potential.
Other than blood pressure check (which came back with poor results, I guess my blood pressure is through the roof) No other tests were done. No ultrasound, no scan, nothing. Just the same test the gyno did only difference was placement of hands and "cough, deep breath, cough....nope you're good."
DH couldn't believe it. He asked if there were any other tests she could do and she said "I'm in charge of hernia's, this isn't a hernia, you are going to have to see another Dr....maybe start taking a few ibuprofen every couple of hours", smiled, offered us a pamphlet on hernia's (declined) and just walked out.
We sat there for a bit thinking she was coming back....a nurse popped her head in and said "oh you guys are done, lobby is to the right".
I'm done. Guessing this bill will be about $300 too....so that's at least $600 more dollars for no results.

Oh, and the "therapy" thing for SS? I guess SS had a questionnaire he had to fill out himself before the "pre-teen" doctor appointment. One of the questions was "has anyone hurt you?" and "have you hurt anyone?" SS took the questions in a literal sense and answered "Yes" to both. He told DH the "has anyone hurt you" was when a kid elbowed him in the face by accident and broke his glasses (I know I mentioned that in a blog somewhere, BM was demanding DH leave work) and when he was hit in the face by a soccer ball in gym.
The "have you hurt anyone?" question he accidentally pinched a classmates hand in a door. SS said after he filled out the paper the doctor went out of the room to talk to BM. The questions were "yes or no" with no lines to elaborate. SS isn't dumb, I'm sure he would've written an explanation if given the chance.
SS said he tried to tell BM when she asked him about it (Who's hurting you?! tell me!") but she wouldn't listen....and now BM is convinced that DH and I are "abusing" SS and he is "too scared" to talk about it...hence the therapy. This explains the "YOUR FAULT!" accusation thrown at DH during drop off on Sunday. SS says he doesn't want to go to "another doctor"...and given all the appointments he's been to over the last few months I don't blame him.
What a freaking mess. I am guessing DH will have to "assist" in paying for the "therapy" because if he denies it BM will say he's trying to hide something. No idea how this is going to play out.
