(Background on the vitamins: after wasting two days in the clinic earlier this month without help and barely able to function, I dug into our collection of medical and alternative/complementary therapy texts. Calculating a single dose of hormones to get me back on track would have been my first choice, but in lieu of that I've chosen to use vitamins to ease the hot flashes and bleeding. Since 3 July, I've been taking 8000 IU of vitamin A, a "high potency" B complex, 1g vitamin C, and 400 IU vitamin E daily.)
After vitals, I was called up by a provider whose name I didn't catch (it wasn't the primary women's health provider but she had a plain white labcoat on over civvies so I couldn't see her rank or last name) and taken into an office, not an exam room, where I was told my pelvic ultrasound was clear aside from a 1x2cm cyst on my left ovary and since I wasn't complaining of pain I was free to go. No Pap or exam (I was there for a full gyno exam), nothing when I asked except for an offer to put me on the Pill if I wanted it.
I'm trying to get ahold of the patient advocate (base locator gave me the base information number when I called, base information didn't have a number for anything with "advocate" in the name except for Family Advocacy, which is a different service entirely -- told you everything takes six times as long around here) and Himself will be bending the ear of his First Sergeant as soon as he can get ahold of him.
Needless to say, I am damnably pissed off at the joke that passes for women's healthcare at the base clinic. If I can get my hands on my test results and so on from earlier this month, I'll post them for everyone's edification.
