My lipoma was removed in the hospital by a surgeon I was in terrible pain during the procedure the whole procedure took about 30 minutes from start to finish I was crying format he pain that I was not able to endure after few shots of local anesthetic the doctor proceed to count into my skin and I felt the scalpel I felt my skin been cut I started to sceem in agony my surgeon told me « that is unacceptable you can cry but don’t scream » his exact words then he proceeds to give me more local anesthetic after that it became more tolerable but I was still I initial shock of the pain and cried for entire procedure.
I am so upset when the surgery was finished I had about 12 stitches across from my right breast (2 inches away from my breast area across the rib until the back ) a very large insition scar I must go back to the same doctor to have the stitches removed in 2 weeks. After the surgery I was still howling in pain and crying a lot I asked the doctor to give me something for the pain his answer to me was to take 2 Tylenol or advid I was in schuc h pain I could not stop shaking and crying I had to go to my family doctor for prescription of codeine mixed with atasol to reduce my pain I never expected to be treated like that in the hospital by a surgeon I am till in schok by do we need to suffer and feel so much pain with la the help available right now to the doctor to reduce the patient discomfort I felt like a number not important and I felt like the doctor did not give a crap about my discomfit and pains it was a terrible experience just terrible
It has left me with large insition that was stitched with 12 stitches I will have the stitches removed in 2 weeks it is a large cut from my right side next to right breast across the ribs till the back I am in a lot of pain since the surgery.
I am wonder how soon can I start applying scar removal creams to the scar area of my body and what is the best cream available right now to reduce the scar visibility Ps is it normal to still be in such pain my doctor gave me codeine pills mixed with atasol I have to take them every 4 to 5 hours for the pain but I still feel the pain even after I took the pills what can I do ?
