Hi Doodah I’m so sorry to hear you had such an awful time. You shouldn’t have to put up with this treatment. I’m pleased you have complained to the hospital who will have to investigate and report back. If everyone he treated like this complained the hospital would have to take action. Please take all action you can and make sure you get an apology at the very least. I know I have had bad experiences with doctors in the past and I have accepted poor treatment thinking I somehow deserved it because I am obese. But since my WLS I am determined not to tolerate bad treatment any more. I can be assertive in any other area of my life so why did I let myself be treated like a second class citizen by doctors. My experiences with Streamline have improved my view of doctors but I still have a bit of a phobia about other medical appointments. I agree WLS gives us the courage to fight back. We are now more aware of how we turn to food for comfort and that never changes. You support us all so well and help us through our WLS journeys so give yourself the same advice you would to any of us: put this awful experience behind you and move on. He is a bully and it is his problem go back to your GP and get another referral. Elaine x
