when I took a sonogram for digestive problems, I ended up getting my womb checked, I felt it was wrong but also confused and embarrased so I didn"t say anything.
What do you think?
Last year I took a sonogram for digestive problems (liver and gall bladder), a woman performed it on my upper abdomen, told me she was also looking at my kidneys, I was fine with that, exam done.
This year I took the same exam with a different person: an older man, very efficient, the exam was done in a couple of minutes, he was moving the transducer around and taking pictures really fast.
I told him I had gall bladder problems, he did the area, then my kidneys, and lastly he said "problems with reproductive organs?..." and before I could answer, slid the "mouse" from my stomach to my uterus and looked for a couple of seconds.
It happened so fast, I didn't say anything because I was asking myself " is this normal? should I be okay with that?" but I was really uncomfortable and I keep thinking about it.
My first question: is it normal practice when getting a sonogram to have more organs checked than what is prescribed?
My second question: how would you tell the person that this is not okay with you and ask them to stop?
