Just for the ladies...

Hi Ladies:

Some further information about GYN exams. Today I had a consult with a GYN other than my regular one - this doctor a specialist that deals with matters my regular GYN doesn't.

My year old right hip replacement does just fine in the stirrups, but today I was not able to "scoot down" because of pain in my left, original, unreplaced hip. The stirrups were not adjustable like those of my regular GYN.

The doctor said he could do the exam with me lying down. With my legs still in stirrups, the doctor helped me lie back on the gurney. He put a comfy pillow under my neck, and proceeded with the exam. Looks like he had had previous experience with ladies with osteo arthritic hips!

Hope this helps some of you other ladies.

Shirley H.
