dr listened to my chest and took blood pressure, wrote a few notes, sat back on his chair grinned and said
dr.....'your chest and heart is fine, if there was anything wrong it would have been picked up in the hospital you are overweight and need to lose weight as you are carrying another person around all the time and you need to exercise more'
me....i cant do much because i get short of breath and anxiety when my heart rate increases and i have lost almost 3 1/2 stone on slimming world'
dr....you will be fine but you need to lose weight'
told him i had a fitbit and what my avaerage steps were and he wasnt happy and said i needed to do 10,000 at lease, he then went to say he easily manages that a day
he does not have a clue what its like to live with a screwed up thyroid that effects your daily life, zaps you of every bit of energy, makes it hard for you to breath, heart rate thats very slow one day and super fast the next.....even worse when you dont tolerate the medication so have to stay at a low dose
i had to walk out because i wanted to smack him
my weight was recorded at the drs about 3 weeks ago by the smoking nurse so if he had of bloody looked he would have seen that
i dont deny i need to loose weight ect but it was his attitude and the smugness on his face
well if im no better monday i will be going back but i wont see him again
