Dr. C as in COW!

Dr. C as in COW!

Salam y’all,

This is going to be a long post…

Last week i was kinda hospitalized ……. well for 2 hours anyway, i had bacteria in my blood…. that’s what i was told… i’m fine now, that’s what i’m told too…(To be honest, i do really feel good today. Finally! Alhamdullilah…) It started last week when i got my period and was having what else? period pain. So one day after work, i slept early because i wasn’t feeling so good. I woke up around 10pm shivering, i was scared because i’ve never felt like that before. Apart from the dull pain at my peranakan, i did not feel any headache, no nausea, nothing, i just felt DAMN COLD that i was shivering! I pad downstairs and told my mom, who then told my dad, who then TOLD me; HOSPITAL NOW! See where i get my drama genes from? En. laki was off somewhere working so he wasn’t around, i protested meekly but finally my dad won because i was just plain scared and i felt like shit already…

When we get to the emergency room, they told me to get to a bed and wait for a doctor. After about 5 minutes, i got this young woman doctor who started to ask me what’s wrong in a loud voice, i told her that i had a very heavy period and i was shivering and cold. The doctor look at me like i can’t believe i go to medical school to treat this and started telling/asking me, YOU ADA PASANG AIR-COND KE ATAU YOU PASANG KIPAS TAKK? when i said no, she started to clicked her lips and sigh loudly and walked away….then 2 minutes later she comes back wheeling a scanning machine and ask me; YOU DAH KAHWIN? YOU ADA MENGANDUNG TAK? YOU ADA MENGANDUNG TAK? when i told her no, while she KEPT scanning my vast and EMPTY womb, she keeps sighing….LOUDLY! …O…K! She was not convinced that i am not pregnant that she kept pressing the scanner on my womb area until another doctor comes by and asks me, are you pregnant? i said no and she told that doctor C (who from now on will be called dr.c as in cow!) ; she’s not pregnant, of course you’re not going to see anything, take her blood pressure and her blood…

So Dr.C left to take the needle or whatever, by this time, they (notDr.C and another person, who i don’t know his job were but definately not a doctor) were discussing my diagnosis in front of me  like i was invincible or deaf or BOTH,  Dr. C’s diagnosis was i had an ectopic pregnancy, which obviously tak boleh pakai because my womb is so empty, you can yell in it and get echos… so another diagnosis was ….get this, MENOPAUSE! JENG, JENG, JENG!!! O….KKK! Dr. C came back with a blood pressure machine thingy and started to TRY taking my BP, she put the strap on my arm and was holding that clothes pin lookalike infront of me, when i didn’t do anything, she yelled, AMBIK NI LETAK KAT JARI! she was annoyed at me, Dr. C was really annoyed with ME that night for being sick and not knowing what my sickness was… how am i supposed to know,  i was to take that clothes pin and put it on my finger? besides isn’t that her job or the nurses job? then the machine did it’s thing and Dr. C kept sighing loudly and clicking her lips and told someone she couldn’t get my BP …. ( actually, it was low…  Dr. C just got fedup and didn’t want to deal with me anymore..) and could this someone come and get my BP, around this time, a nurse came by and took my temperature (after about 45mins of admission in a moderately busy ER). My temp. was 40 degrees, the nurse looked alarmed and informed notDr.C who then called Dr.C and ask her if she took my blood and my urine already? Dr. C came back with a bottle and told me to piss in it…then she started to poke me to get my blood…. fun times…NOT! I have a high treshold of pain, i maybe don’t scream or wimper but it still hurt like hell and this Dr.C, she keep sticking and unsticking the giant needle for blood like aku ni batang pisang! Sakit lah bodoh! She finally get that thing plastered on my hand and proceed taking my blood and somehow managing to spill some on the hospital bed when she was capping it back on. Fun Times! Then after what felt like eternity in hell, someone came by and tell me that i have bacteria in my blood which explains the fever and why i was shivering…. Dr.C came and started  to hook me up to sodium chloride solution (i think, i could be wrong because i googled it and turns out~ it’s just salt!) and some other thing that she injected into me. She injected twice! First time she did it in a hurry and jammed it in, the damn thing tercabut and memancut keluar. Sakit jangan cakap lah…tapi aku patient yang bagus, aku cool jek.. maybe that’s why dia ingat aku sajek nak menyusahkan hidup dia…. Oh yeah, baru aku teringat, masa nurse tu keluarkan jarum tu, aku tengok jarum tu macam bengkok sikit, patut lah sakit! Bongok!!

So that was it, after 2 hours, Dr.C came by and tell me, not ask eh.. i was alright and can be discharged. I was just happy to get the hell out of there. To tell the truth masa dia cakap aku pasang air-con or kipas sebab aku mengigil tu, aku dah tak rasa sakit sebab aku dah tukar jaadi she-hulk! I know  muka aku dah bertukar garang, i can’t help it… What my experience that night thought me is…. beli lah insurans to cover diri and pergi private hospital, it’s  a world of difference! I know, i’ve been there, no one is condescending to you, when you talk they listen, just be prepared with the moolah!

Sayang kan, kerana nila setitik, rosak susu sebelanga. Kerajaan belanja kan berbillion ringgit untuk modern kan hospital tapi ada jugak tenaga pekerja yang macam Dr.C…. kerja kerana wang bukan keikhlasan hati! Suka-suki nak marah patient, cakap dengan patient macam patient dunggu, seribu satu perkara lain lah.  YOU SUCK LAH DR.COW!

Tell me something I dont know, my experience gaduh ngan Dr in Emergency Room, muka lawa tapi tak der budi bahasa langsunggg, but sorry to tell u, her name was Julie , siyes, aku ingat nama dia though it was some 8- 9 years ago sb dia tengking aku..aku gastric tak hengat sampai klinic kat college pun refer me to HKL, obat simen yg biasa tu dah berbotol aku telan, so I told her MAYBE it was not gastritis or MAYBE its just getting worst, mg la aku bukan doktor but, hey aku yg sakit so just giving my opinion. What d ya know naik angen ko minah tu, katanya how do u know its not gastric ? Aku kata dah ubat yg aku telan selalu tu dah berkodi aku telan tak baik2 so?? I dont need rocket science to tell lah kan…

    Dia tahan aku kat emergency room n bagi aku 2 kali ubat simen bodoh tu (antacid) sampai malam , aku lagi teruk , so dia baru terhegeh-hegeh nak admit kan aku nok. So tipon bapak aku, bapak kata get out frm there , so aku bagi borang admission tu kat pompuan tu n said, I ‘m not risking my life in your hands, for all u know, I might have died sitting here waiting to prove that u r right…..
