Some people can't even catch a break from the shade when they're under the knife.
Texas native Ethel Easter caught her doctor's talking ish about her while she was sedated in surgery and was able to hear everything they said thanks to a small recording device she placed in her hair extensions before the procedure. When she came to, she played the recording and was horrified to hear what had been said about her by the people that were supposed to be caring for her.
Easter decided to record her surgery following an interaction with her doctor that left her less than pleased. When she was told that she would have to wait two months to schedule the hernia surgery she broke down and cried. She told Fox26, "I was like, 'I can't wait for two months." The doctor's response put her on alert, she says. "He got very abrupt. He said, 'Who do you think you are? You have to wait just like everybody else.'"
Easter admitted that the interaction made her nervous, and days before the surgery, she decided to have a recorder hidden within her braided weave.
In the recording, as soon as Easter can be heard snoring, the doctor begins talking about her. "She’s a handful. She had some choice words for us in the clinic when we didn’t book her case in two weeks," he says.
To that, a man responds, "That doesn’t seem like the thing to say to the person who’s going to do your surgery."
Easter added that those in the OR made hurtful comments about her body. "Did you see her belly button?" a woman is heard asking, while others in the room laugh.
She added that some of the medics called her a "queen" and her doctor said that he felt sorry for her husband.
While Easter has said that she does not intend to sue, she does want to share her story. Hopefully this will teach a lesson to surgeons and doctors that even when someone might be completely knocked out, they could still be listening.
