Hi ladies I went to see my doctor yesterday about the weight gain that I had experienced since having endo. Also to discuss my hysterectomy date not being through still and the fact only one ovary should be taken not both like they want to. My doctor weighed me an felt my stomach which was agony. She then sat me down and told me that the size of her small pin box on her desk is the amount of food I should be having. I told her that I don't eat sweets chocolate and cakes etc and to be honest don't really eat much at all which my family can back up she told me that she will not discuss it with me and won't listen to the pathetic excuses she has spent 25 years listening to excuses at end of the day it's coming from somewhere and I'm putting it in my body end of. She then had a go at me about exercise which I told her I do do when I can but sometimes can't with the pain especially when I'm having my period which is twice a month at least. She had no sympathy and told me that's no excuse endo does not cause weight gain or for your daily life to be affected. She then moved on to say I'm depressed I told her I was over my weight problems she tried to make out it was my home life. I'm disgusted she then be littled an endo specialist saying there advice was wrong. I was in tears she knew from phone convo before I went to the appointment that I was upset with weight gain and the endo was dragging me down. She made me feel worse I was in floods of tears she isn't exactly really slim herself. I spoke with the receptionists and they were disgusted and said there has been endless complaints and for me to make one so I am and I changed my doctor. They wonder why girls starve themselves and take dodgy diet pills well no wonder at it. I told her the truth and went for help I weren't going ask for help to then lie to her about my eating and lifestyle. Now I can't bring myself to eat its knocked my confidence badly I feel worse than I did. I honestly don't do anything different to before and I've never been above a size 10 I'm now a 12 maybe 14. I have booked with a health trainer. This doctor is awful she doesn't suffer with it she is a doctor not a gynae or endo specialist. Loads of girls experience weight gain with endo and not being able exercise as much as usual due to the pain. I'm so upset and now feel worthless and like I'm some whimp and endo shouldn't be affecting me.
