Default Re: C-Sections without the woman's consent

There are bad doctors just as there are bad cops. They do not represent but a small minority. However, like the police , there seems to be that same blue line of unwavering, fraternal, defense when one of them over steps.

My wife had a fully encapsulated ovarian cancer. There was no need for the hysterectomy. But the doctor made the choice over my objections. "I saved her life." he said.

I was happy to have my wife back alive. But her reactions were quite different. A subsequent surgeon told her to never go back to that doctor. Five surgical attempts to correct the damage later she still suffers. Now that we know what she lost, so has mine.

And the original doctor? He continued to practice for years.

As for the women of the OP who suffered pain and loss at the hands of a doctor during delivery, I understand their pain. At least as much as a man could. The anger remains for a lifetime.
