The first time I went to Dr. Drollinger for an annual exam and pap, I knew that he would be my doctor from now on - his wonderful bedside manner put me at so ease that I didn't even know he had started the exam until he said "You're done, everything's fine"! On Nov. 4, 2010, Dr. D performed a da Vinci suprasurgical hysterectomy on me and it was a piece of cake. The worst part of the whole procedure was the bloating afterwards. I never had any "pain", just discomfort. I was given Vicadin while I was in the hospital (from the time the procedure ended around 11 AM until 8 AM the next day) which did nothing. I was given a script for Percocet when I was released, but I only took 3 of them, mostly just to sleep - and could easily have survived without them. According to all of my nurses, Dr. D is the reason for my lack of pain - they said that other women having the same procedure done by other doctors were in the hospital longer and were in a lot more pain while there. I don't know what Dr. D does differently, but I feel very blessed to have found him!
