Maternity Hospital …

September 7, 2007 at 8:03 pm (Kuwait, Personal)

 

My poor little cousion who is 14 years old, collapsed as she suffered severe blood loss 2 weeks ago. I visited her yesterday in the Maternity Hospital where she is being treated at the moment. She was given 2 units of blood, but until now. The doctors can’t figure the reason behind her blood loss and the associated Anemia that she developed. For 2 weeks, the bleeding didn’t stop and the poor girl is in pain most of the time. The doctors don’t know how to stop the pain and the blood loss. The treatment so far was changing her diet!!!!

What scared me, is that they gave her contraceptive pills so as to stop the bleeding!! No offence, but Contraceptive pills for a 14 years old girl!!! They are suspecting menorrhagia; heavy menstrual bleeding. It is caused by hormone imblance in adolescence, but the poor thing, contreceptive pills is a drastice step .. It breaks my heart to see her like this.

Yesterday, We set off at 4.28 PM so that we can visit her at the hospital. When did we arrive? 1 hour and 3 minutes later …  Busy Streets and the schools haven’t started yet..

    contraceptive pills for 14 old are not wrong as they are being given for the right reasons. most of the menstrual problems are related to hormonal imbalance in both teenagers and young adults, and contraceptive pills help to restore the balance. Also change in diet helps a lot in the menstrual related issues. I am not a doctor, but say this from experience of being treated for menstruation related diseases as a child. I hope your cousin feels better soon.

    Chic:
    Allah yesalmech min kal shar.. Thanks for the kind wishes

    Blue Dress:
    Allah Ye3ein el-Jamme3.. & Allah Yesalmech min Kel Shar .. She already hates it. This the 2nd time she collapsed for the same reason.. They didn’t anything until she felt that she’s going to die. Otherwise, they said that her condition is not that dangerous!!! Incompetent doctors !!!

    Amu:
    Allah Yesalamk Ensha-allah.. We she was supposed to leave the hospital yesterday but they decided to extend her saty because the antibiotic that one of the doctors prescribed hadn’t worked on her … What a daramatic way to end her summer vacation and start her school term !!!

    Grey:
    Thanks alot, she really needs that …I appreciate it …

    Ava:
    Welcome .. Ava
    I know that contraceptive pills are not wrong if they were the only options and they are as far as I know, but She had already collapsed before for the same reason and they sent her away because her condition is not that serious. This time, she looked pale and started complaining of abdominal pains but the doctors (4 in total) decided that she should be monitered for the whole of 2 weeks… No offence, 2 weeks without any medication and the poor girl is still bleeding and crying … That’s torture!!! They gave her the contraceptive pills 2 days ago and it helped but they girl still has abdominal cramps every morning …
    Thanks for sharing your experience and for your assurance … I hope she would get better soon, so that she would have a couple of stree-free pre-school days…
