Customer Question
I was diagnosed with...

I was diagnosed with job 20 yrs ago. I know I need to get regular pap smears but since my son was born 24 yrs ago I can not get through any pap or exam. It is excruciatingly painful. Now I'm having vagina pelvic and back pain. My Dr. Sent me to a Gyno but he just demanded I get the pap done. I'm just wondering how can I get a Dr to give me a pap under general anaesthesia? I've read that other very nervous or anxious woman have been able to do it under mild sedation. In terrified because I'm having usual symptoms and need to find out why. Please help me

Doctor's Assistant: Have you had any recent injuries? What seems to make the pain better or worse?

No injuries....I was fine getting pap smears before my son was born so it doesn't make sense. Unable to to have penetrative sex as well

There are better ways than general anesthesia.

We sometimes give our patients Valium or do conscious sedation so our patients don't feel anything and don't even recall the entire process.

You can ask most competent Gynecologists and they should have access to someone who will come and do in-office conscious sedation.

If not, you can find your own and ask your doctor if it's okay (almost always is).

Ok that would solve my problems but my current Dr. And the gynecologist ate acting like its out of the question...not to mention I've tried with several other Drs. And nurses.
OB GYN Doctor: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 11 months ago

I'm sorry but it seems that your doctors aren't very compassionate.

The irony is that even my dentist offers me full sedation and let's face it, going to the dentist is NOT as bad as having a pelvic exam done.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
