Black women, a procedure was performed on me back in September of 2017 that did not need to be performed. I had a slight bleeding problem and I went to Lynchburg Gynecology located on Old Forest Road in Lynchburg, Virginia because I had just moved back to Virginia that same month and as soon as I got out of the U-haul Truck that I drove from Baltimore, MD to Lynchburg, VA, that is when my problems started and they’ve not stopped yet because of the racist medical ‘care’ that Black people receive in this nightmare hellhole of neo-Nazi racists experimenting on our bodies and fucking them up.
I went into the office of Lynchburg Gynecology and of course I was given the worst doctor in that facility, Dr. Lewis Dabney. And as many times as I have had pap smears done, that was the first time in my life that I screamed and yelled in abject agony. I knew that bastard was torturing me just for fun because none of what he did was necessary. When it was over, I was told to call back in three days for the results because that bastard had also performed a uterine biopsy. When I called back three days later, I was told that everything was fine. All tests came back negative. I knew there couldn’t be too much wrong with me because I had never had a bad pap smear before. I had never had any STDs because I hadn’t had many sexual partners. I can still count on one hand the number of sexual partners that I have had and I’m in my late 50s.
But lo and behold, I get a call from Dabney’s office telling me that I need to come back in for a transvaginal ultrasound. I’m like, “Why? The tests all came back normal!” I was told that they needed to find out what my endometrial stripe looked like. I called my old primary care doctor who was located in Baltimore, MD and told him what was going on and he told me to go ahead and have the procedure done. I did so. Again, I was in there screaming in agony again because Dr. Lewis Dabney was digging all up inside me with his fingers AFTER the transvaginal ultrasound had been completed. Now remember, a week before, I had already been examined and so what were his fingers doing up inside me? I have yet to figure that out. Not to mention, he had the bedside manner of a gorilla.
The next thing I know, I am called in to have a consultation with him and he tells me about my endometrial stripe. Now I don’t know anything about an endometrial stripe and what it should be and so, taking his word for it, he said that I needed a D&C to get more material from my uterus. I was loath to have the procedure done because I did not trust him, but I talked to some nurses who told me that his personality left a lot to be desired, but that he was a good doctor. I also called my primary care doctor and told him about my misgivings with this Lewis Dabney and was told to go see a different doctor if I was not comfortable with that one. The problem was that there aren’t a lot of options when you’re in a small burg and the reviews for the only other gynecology office were even worse than the one I had gone to. So, I was between a rock and a hard place.
I forgot about it until my new primary care doctor, quack John Williams asked if I had gotten the D&C procedure done and I told him about my misgivings about having the procedure done by Lewis Dabney because I did not trust him and he was rough. I was assured that I would be fine if I just went ahead and had the procedure. So, after having gone to get a chest x-ray and pre-op blood work, I found myself at Virginia Baptist Hospital, all ready to undergo a damn D&C.
After the procedure, I went home and when I went to use the bathroom, it did not feel the same. When I would vacuum, I would experience pain where I had never felt pain before, down in the lower region. I called and complained and was prescribed a medication for a urinary tract infection. That did not clear the issues up and I called and continued to complain and was given another medication for a urinary tract infection.
The next thing I know, I’m bleeding profusely and I call my gynecologist in Minnesota and she tells me to go and get my records from Dr. Lewis Dabney. When I tried to get my records, I was told that I had to wait two weeks for them to get the records. Now, I’m standing in the same office that performed the medical procedures on me; the pap smear, the endometrial biopsy and the transvaginal ultrasound and they are telling me that they need two weeks to get the records? I’m like give me my records right now because you can spit from one end of this burg to the other and it’ll hit you in your damn face. The black woman I was talking to got up and went and got a white woman who started printing out some shit and when I went to look at what she was printing out, it had nothing to do with the tests that had been performed in that office. What she printed out was the actual D&C procedure that had been dictated into the records at Virginia Baptist Hospital. And the reason why they refused to release my records from Lewis Dabney’s office is because I did NOT need a D&C at all. He was running an assembly line straight to Virginia Baptist Hospital because when I thought back, I remembered when I was filling out my paperwork, every patient that spoke to the front desk personnel, who had been to see Dr. Lewis Dabney was telling the front desk personnel that Dabney had asked them to schedule a D&C. And I remember thinking to myself, “I bet you when he is finished with me, I’m going to be in the D&C line,” and sure as hell, I was. A goddamn assembly line for D&Cs.
Folks, I went all the way to Minnesota to seek help to hopefully have someone undo what that neo-Nazi bastard did to me and nothing can be done. My life is a living hell because of what Lewis Dabney did to me and yet that bastard is still doing the same thing he did to me to other Black women and is getting paid for it. I have been, for years now, trying to get his medical license revoked, the insurance money stopped from flowing in and I have not been listened to, but have I given up? NO! I never will! I have been on the phone yet again today, constantly being transferred from one person to another and I’m sitting here waiting on a callback that will never happen and I will be calling them back. But please know that I will NEVER stop trying to get something done about these racist neo-Nazis who are fucking Black women up and yet blaming us for our health problems. We have always been used as guinea pigs even throughout slavery and nothing has changed. I don’t want another Black woman to go through what I am going through and I hope someone shows this blog to Lewis Dabney and I hope he wants to go to court over it because I am going to make sure that I screech and yell to the rafters about his racist neo-Nazi shit! And they can haul me the fuck off, I don’t care because I’m going the fuck off.
Black women, again, be very careful of these racist neo-Nazis that are out to do you MUCH HARM. Our bodies are precious and they are fucking them up and leaving us to deal with the fact that they hate us because they are some rabid, vicious, depraved, bloodthirsty neo-Nazi racist dogs! Do your research! And if something does not feel right, go with your gut feeling. I wish I had gone with mine and that is why I no longer believe in medical care, nor do I believe in the ‘goodness’ of doctors because as far as I am concerned, they are nothing more than death squads and should be treated as such.
Take care of your bodies so that you don’t need to visit these neo-Nazis because they do NOT have your best interest at heart. I had to find out the hard way. Don’t you have to as well.
