Yesterday, was my d&c the people were all so pleasant. But they keep acting like I was there to have a mole removed. They were all smiles and saying good things. I really just wanted to scream do you know why I'm here.

I had one done under general at the hospital, and one done in office with a Valium and local anesthetic.  At the hospital the nurses were all really sweet, and cheery...in the office, they were much more somber, in a symathetic way. 
I did love my nurses at the hospital, they were very nurturing and kind. 

So how are you feeling Hun.  I'm assuming the procedure went as well as it could go?  (((hugs)))

The staff were all so happy. Kid in a candy store happy. One actually came in and said its a beautiful day. She said its a good thing I get out early so I can enjoy it. It what world would that happen.

It seemed like annoyed them when I said I wanted to keep the remains. You would've thought asked for the world.

I'm glad you advocated for that.  Over and over I find they tell people it's against policy...I think it must be more red tape for them or something.

I told them if I didn't get them I wouldn't have the procedure. I refused to sign consent until I was given the form to keep the remains.

I'm glad the procedure went well! I think it's one of those things where they don't know how to act because of what kind of procedure it is. So they put on their happy faces like they are trained. Some are just better at their jobs than others. I'm sorry hun! ((hugs))

I'm really starting to believe in larger cities that their should be an advocate to help women in the hospitals.

I had mine in general. The staff was somber & nice....I didn't see any "happy people".....although, I was sort of in a trance....I was wheeled into the room & immediately my head started playing out a scene from Grey's Anatomy & I went to my place of calm & it was so quick that I went under that I didn't have time to be scared anymore. Love my Grey's! 

The only nurse I had issues was my charge nurse. She was so SLOW with the paperwork & than she hadn't even checked me & wanted to push cytotec up my REAR! Than she told us our baby was a girl because I wanted to know before the D&C....but our baby was actually a boy. She was awkward after that. Very weird. I was glad to be rid of her but I she was my discharge nurse too. She wheeled me down & someone was putting a new baby in their car--and she didn't turn me away so I had to watch! boo!
