Medical Rape: Coerced Hysterectomy, Oophorectomy, and Lymphadenectomy

medical rape unneeded hysterectomy
I was one of those lucky women who never suffered any gynecological problems in the 58 years I had my precious female organs fully intact. I trusted the female GP who did my yearly Pap smear (which she insisted I have every year, despite never, ever having abnormal cells). I did not know she was in cahoots with corrupt gynecologists looking for easy prey to perform hysterectomies. She forced me into seeing a gynecologist, writing that I had post-menopausal bleeding. This was a blatant lie, as I NEVER had a single drop of blood since my menopause finished 5 1/2 years before. She would not take “NO” for an answer. She did everything to gain my trust, so I didn’t understand what was going on. She wore me down until I gave in. I went to the gynecologist she referred me to so he could examine me, say I’m fine and send me home. I’d never seen him before in my life.

As soon as I sat down, he opened the referral, and the first words out of his mouth was: “You have bleeding. I’m giving you a curettage.” I was shocked. He didn’t ask me one single question, and he didn’t examine me. I said I had no bleeding and I’m not having a curettage, but he would not take “NO” for an answer. He already had me booked in for the pre-admission and the curettage at a hospital I’d never been to before. I was not told that it is my choice. He manipulated and coerced me until I gave in.

At the post-op appointment two weeks later, he said that I had cancer and had to have a hysterectomy. He’d already sent the referral to a public hospital I had never been to before, and was not told was a teaching hospital. I only went there to be examined, told I’m fine, and sent home. The Clinical Fellow in Gynecology/Oncology called me in after the waiting room was empty. He then mentioned the bleeding. I was so angry, I said:

“Why do you people keep saying I had bleeding, when I hadn’t had a single drop since my menopause finished over five years ago, until I was given the curettage and bled for 3 days.”

He ignored me and told me he was going to take out my cervix, my uterus, my Fallopian tubes, and my ovaries. And he was going to do it by laparoscopy, but still may have to cut me open. Again, I was shocked. I said:

“I have no bleeding, no pain, no symptoms whatsoever, and begged for another option.”

His face was full of anger and contempt as he yelled at me:

“YOU HAVE NO OTHER OPTION. YOU SHOULD CONSIDER YOURSELF LUCKY YOU DON’T HAVE TO HAVE CHEMOTHERAPY. NOT LIKE ALL THOSE WOMEN IN THE WAITING ROOM”, and he flicked his hand toward the empty waiting room and said: “THEY WEREN’T SO LUCKY”.

I was shocked.

He then answered every question I asked with:

“You’ll be fine,” and insisted I go in, in two days.

Next, he shoved a piece of paper in front of me and pointed where to sign. He did not go through one thing written on that consent form. I asked him if he’d done laparoscopy surgery before, and he looked me in the eye and told me he’d done hundreds, that he could do them with his eyes closed. A blatant lie. I did not know that after I left, he added on the form he bullied me into signing that he may take out some pelvic lymph nodes as well. He sprung that on me just before the surgery.

To make a long story short. He mutilated six organs from my body, and God knows how many lymph nodes, as that was covered-up. He botched it beyond repair leaving me wailing in agony every day and bleeding out since he butchered me in June 2005.

The morning after he slaughtered my organs, he smugly told me that I was as clean as a whistle; that all my removed organs had been healthy.

He removed healthy organs.

I was coerced into having an unneeded hysterectomy; a hysterectomy that has left me in agonizing pain ever since. For what? Profit? Medical training? I don’t know, but I am devastated.

When I tried to bring a complaint against him and the hospital, the whole system took his side and did everything to discredit me and spread the word I was paranoid. They denied that I was in any pain, and kept sending me to psychiatrists who just kept pushing drugs on me and telling me they found nothing wrong in the tests when I kept telling them how much pain I’m in.

I’ve never in my life been touched by such evil. I was a victim of fraud and criminal medical malpractice, and my health and my life has been destroyed by those evil doctors. Why aren’t women warned about these corrupt doctors who trick healthy women into unnecessary hysterectomies. This surgical racket has been going on for decades and will never stop because the system is geared to protect doctors, and not patients, from unnecessary harm. As Dr. Phil Hammond said: “The system is still geared to protecting doctors’ reputations rather than protecting patients from unnecessary harm.”

  1. I was also pressured into surgery after going to the ER with severe acute abdominal pain at a time when I had no idea hysterectomy surgery was a racket. After a CT scan, the ER doctor told me I might need a minor surgery and that he believed I had a condition called ovarian torsion and then the gynecologists were called in. Within an hour, without answering any questions, they tried to force me to agree to a total hysterectomy. When I heard those words, I started crying uncontrollably. I had not previously had any menstrual problems and it didn’t make any sense, and I did not want any of my organs removed. For hours while I was in severe pain I asked why they would suggest that and no one answered. I was put in a dark empty post-op room to wait for the gynecologist to arrive. After being in severe pain for over 7 hours to the point of not being able to walk and given large amounts of pain killers, the gynecologist showed up and started to badger me to agree to a total hysterectomy. I had no idea what was going on or what the problem was, but I refused to consent to a hysterectomy. I made it very clear that I did not want any organs removed and I made the gynecologist promise, in front of a room full of medical staff, to do only what was absolutely necessary. He begrudgingly agreed. Had I been sober, had I not sat in pain for 12 hours and had I been able to think straight or get on the internet, I would have run for my life, but I had no idea they target and attack women for these surgeries. I ended up signing a blank consent form because I refused to consent to a hysterectomy. I was then put under anesthesia without my knowledge and when I woke up later, I learned that my uterus, both ovaries, and cervix had been amputated. I was in horrible pain, much worse than prior to the surgery. Instead of having pain in one spot, the pain was everywhere in my whole abdominal area. When I was able to get a copy of my medical records, the first thing I noticed was that my consent form that had been blank when I signed it, now stated that I consented to a full hysterectomy. They filled in the surgery that I refused, after I signed it. I also later learned that my condition only required a minor surgery, to untwist my ovary and remove ovarian cysts, or at worse remove that ovary if it could not be saved. I did not have cancer, nor any other problems than benign ovarian cysts. I learned that women are targeted tricked into this barbaric surgery every day but even though I didn’t consent to it, it was done to me anyway and has destroyed my health, my life and trust in people. I am still shocked a decade later that this could be done to me and they just get away with it.

  2. June,
    I am so sorry for what happened to you. I believe there are good doctors out there, too. They are few and far between. I have been black balled and no one wants to help me or believe me due to a former boss. I am at my wits end with the medical field right now. I don’t know how to make people listen!

  3. Dear Sister, I hope you get enough traction to attract Media Attention and expose this Arrogant Pig who was promoted in another state “due to his Good work” . I have mentioned your case to my local GP a woman doctor who said Yes Indeed that once you have been damaged by a surgeon no other surgeon will take up the cause to fix the original Botched surgery and that the medical profession will defend the situation by claiming that excruciating pain you are suffering is all in your head. You may be suffering scarred tissue nerve damage which cant be seen by medical imaging and could explain why other doctors wont help you as you still have pain all these years later. I can understand why you did not just exercise your right and walk away from this cleverly laid trap as were were taught to revere doctors and their wisdom. I know your personality and Wish only that you contacted me even though I live in another state and as male who worked Medical Bio-engineer know how to deal with these specialists who think they are God. I hope you can ruin his career as he has ruined your life.
    Your Brother John

  4. June, I’m so sorry you were also railroaded into this horrific surgery! Thank you for having the courage to speak out and share your story. The Gyn specialty has been practicing against medical evidence for over a century yet no one seems to care.

  5. June, you are my long-time friend. I’m proud that you have the guts to tell you story publicly, and in such a highly classy manner that any such story could ever be told. Hugs to you, June Gardner​. May your story reach far and wide to help other women speak up and expose the horrible doctors who did this to you. Hard to believe such things ever would happen even one time, but I believe you.

    On behalf of all physicians everywhere, I give you my deepest apologies. I don’t know what else to do, or how to ever make you feel better… but I wish you shine a tiny rainbow of color into your story and say that you are one of the finest human beings that I have ever come to know. I am proud to be your friend.

  6. Been there. Believe you. Doctors finally getting what has been coming to them for a while. There are still a few good doctors out there. They are far and in between. That must change.
