I feel as if the care provider acted as if she cared but really was on a rush to do the procedure. She did her job as far as explaining in detail of what needed to get done to resolve my sons tie. I went in for a lip tie Bv there was no indication of a tonge tie. She showed me (what looked to be a normal looking tongue) explained why I and he was having difficulty breast feeding and basically ignored my concern of a lip tie. I felt as if she was very passionate about snipping his tongue and showed no interest with his lip which was very clear he had one. I felt pressured like she was in a rush to hurry and get the procedure finished explaining it only took a couple minutes and then he would be better and back in my arms. She asked me abut 4 times if I was going to go ahead and get it done then started reading me a realease form and aking me to sign papers. I wasn't feeling very confident and was vulnerable to making things better for him and I. I could have waited and took sometimw to think about it but she said your already here, so I went ahead with the procedure. I asked Iif I could go Iin the room while they did Iit and she said she didnt like that Idea and told me to play mommy and not play nurse. I felt defeated and wished I would have never went through with it. When my child came back in the room she told me how to do mouth exercises and watched him attempt to feed. I felt as if she rushed out of the room. Looking at my son's tongue I thought it looked pretty bad like it was completely sliced all the way from left to right. (Not a little snip) there was A Lot of silver nitrate covering his entire under tounge and even some dripped on his bottom lip. When I left they never told me about a follow up appointment or ever gave me any type of records or paperwork on his appointment. I did go home with a care package with after care notes and gloves and was told to call if I had any questions. When I got to my car I started looking up pictures of TT procedures and knew his looked BAD. I cried and drive home. I actually made a appointment to another place that following Monday and was told that that was the worst incision that they had ever seen and that my son had a stage for lip tie so that was confirmed by a pediatric dentist that I should have went to in the first place.
