This is sadly my second miscarriage. I was looking for advice or opinions on how a doctor handled some things. The doctor I saw is not my normal OBGYN. My normal OB canceled on my minutes before I was supposed to see her for a one week follow up. So I had to see the only doctor at my office who was available.
Now my miscarriage was a missed miscarriage that we discovered at what should have been 11 weeks.
My regular OB prescribed Cytotec which I took on November 1st. I went in to this other doctor on friday November 9th. He did a pelvic exam and said that the blood I still had was discharge. He then pushed on my uterus after removing the speculum. He said my uterus was empty and that I passed eveything I have read online that this is fine and some doctors do this instead of ultrasound. That the doctors follow up by to HCG blood work on a regular basis until the levels hit not pregnant.
Well this doctor did put an order in for labs for that day. When I asked him when do I need to come back in to follow up he told me I didn't need to. Maybe I'm wrong? But from what I have googled they have to keep doing blood work to make sure your levels keep falling?
Anyway I thought it was odd but went home. Then Saturday out of nowhere I started bleeding when my bleeding was almost nonexistent at that point. I passed a large bit of "tissue" that I can only describe as looking like liver. Then today same thing happened. I went to the restroom and passed more tissue that was very liver like. This was not discharge. This time the tissue was half way inside of me and I had to remove it the test of the way.
Do I need to call my regular OB and demand an ultrasound? Any suggestions on what to say to the nursing staff if I call?
