PostSubject: the big D word ....!   Wed Mar 14, 2007 2:44 pm

well i went to the doctors yesterday ...and the nurse made me cry ... she was so insensitive and wouldnt listen !!!

basicaly i have been on the pill for ...um ....6 years now ...

i was put on it at 15 because of my heavy periods and ....then i was diagnosed with endometriosis .....

i have to go back to the docs every 6 months to have a check up and to get more pills ....

yesterday was that day

i went and saw a nurse ....who in short said

your fat
you need to lose four stone
im taking you off the pill
and these are your options for other contraceptive (which i needed to decide on before the end of my pill pack in a weeks time)

she wouldnt listen to me about why i was on the pill, and although i know i need to lose weight she offered no help with that

i left the surgery and cried for 3 hours !!!! then ... rang the doctor for another appointment, and second opinion

he is the person that refered my for my endo ... so he knows my history etc ... he was alot nicer ...said i still need to lose weight but also that i MUST stay on the pill .... because it is helping some what with the symptoms i get :O)

he has given me 3 months to prove myself ... i have got to lose at least a stone .....or he will have to take me off the pill for my general healths sake ........

i am trying hard :O) and im doing well so far :O) counting my calorie intake and im going swimming twice a week with mum :O)

i still cant believe how the nurse spoke to me and i can say i wont be seeing one again !! i will go straight to a doctor.

wish me luck Thumbup

Aww glad you got a second opinion and someone who actually listened to you!

I would complain about how insensitive the first doc was!

Good luck with the weight loss :goodluck:

I was going to say the same thing...make a complaint.She is not there too humiliate you,infact she should not even mention your weight unless you have gone there purely for that reason.

Good job it wasnt me she said it too lol

But good luck hun,dont worry about your weight...as long as you are happy with yourself.If you are not,then just simply do something about it.

They will always mention weight. Every time my sister goes to the Dr for a medical, he always tells her that she needs to lose weight. I think its good that they do, because in the long run they are only trying to get you healthy. I think that the nurse should of at least advised you on what to eat though. Maybe give you a diet plan! Also, there is no need to be so insensitive and not listen, I would complain too.

Good luck with the diet Hannah. You can do it!

Sorry hun,I disagree.
She was rude towards Hannah. If they are over weight too the extent that its life threatening,then yes something should be said.

Some people cant help their weight and sometimes cant shift it..it is easier said and done for the nurses/Doctors. As if some people with weight problems dont already know they need too lose weight lol.

I dont agree with the nurse being rude ofcourse, but a Dr/Nurse should and always will mention if someone needs to lose weight. Fact.

I know that ppl who are overweight know they have a problem. BUT sometimes they need to be told, and when a Dr/Nurse tells them so, it might provide them with that little more insentive to lose the weight knowing that someone is there to help and guide them. Thats why I said the nurse should have gave her some help instead of not listening etc.

Weight can always be lost, just like weight can be put on. Its harder to lose it yes, but sticking to a plan will work.

I agree with alot that was said there...

But the way I see it is that It makes people feel embarrised when they are told they are over weight and too lose it.

Some people are happy with their weight even though they are classed as Fat.

Others will get family too tell them or even figure out themselves that they need too lose weight. I just think for a Doctor or nurse unless it effects their health or they are visiting for another reason,dont need too say anything about their weight. Its probably made Hannah feel self concious now.

Yes, i agree that it may make ppl feel embarrased and self concious.

They way I look at it is. Its alright when you have a family member tell you. But will it give you that kick up the butt so to speak? If you were told by a Health Professional that you need to lose weight would you take it more seriously perhaps?

If GP's and Nurses turned a blind eye and ignored the problem, how many ppl would have not even bothered to lose weight if they needed to?

I know a few ppl who are happy with their weight. But if a Dr told them they had to lose a few pounds just for their general health, then they probably would.

Poor Hannah. Did the nurse weigh you at all or just make a comment?

EDIT for poor typos! lol!

Hi Hannah, I'm so sorry to hear you had such a terrible ordeal with the nurse. The way she approached you about weightloss is absolutely dispicable in my opinion. There's a right way and a wrong way to approach people she definitely took the latter option.
Did you explain to her that your already taking steps to lose weight?
Her attitude has probably given your self confidence a real kick, but in a bad way. I'm not surprised you went home and cried. Also for her not to offer you any advice regarding a diet and what sort of diet plan to follow is also very wrong.
Please don't let her upset you, she's just one person at the end of the day.
True, you might need to lose weight and you've already made a conscious decision to do so by controlling your calories and exercising. Don't let it overshadow you though.

Have you thought maybe of starting on the Slimming world plan? You can eat so much food and still have your treats, so much so that it doesn't even feel like your on a diet.
Infact diet is a wrong word to use to describe the Slimming world plan as its about making healthy food choices more than anything else.
The trouble with calorie controlled diets is that you become pre-occupied with food...feel guilty as hell for having a little treat, and because your calorie counting, and feeling restricted, your far more likely to return to old eating habits once you've lost weight.. The reason being because psychologically you think that yo don't need to calorie count anymore as your down to your ideal weight.
I lost my weight through doing SW and I've never ever been to meetings either. I just used a food optimising book that a friend gave to me. I have one I don't use anymore although its a bit dog eared. Your welcome to have it.. I know the plan inside out now.
Why not pop over to my forum and see what its all about.. There's so much support over there and the girls are really lovely.. Skorpy can vouch for that.
I don't want you to think I'm just trying to ram SW down your throat, but if your dieting anyway, this might be a kinder option than worrying about everything that passes your lips in the way of calorie counting.
I lost two and a half stone in 4 months on the sw plan and have never put the weight back on either.

Good luck with whatever you decide to do, and keep your chin up hunny

Sending you load of hugs

love Janey xx

Where should i start....My dad is over weight has been for years was told to loss weight by the doctor or he would need a heart bypass, he's has the bypass, still needs to loss weight been told and told again by the doctor and still hastn't lost weight, is digging his own grave i know, but try telling him.....

I agree that doctors/nurses should tell you about weight conserns but they should also tell you how to go about it....with a diet plan or something, and weekly weigh ins and stuff....

The nurse what spoke to hannah needs to be put in her place she was horrible and rude and i would complain too...

Hannan we are here to help you if you need support or tips or just a kick in the butt....

Good luck hun...xxx

Yes Hannah

Pop over too Janey's Forum.There is so much support there and like she says,It isnt a diet,but just healthy eating.

And Girls yeah I agree after reading through again...it is good too be told by Doc/Nurses if you are overweight.At the end of the day,I suppose they know whats healthy for you and what isnt...but that nurse went the wrong way about it...

Well said Becky and loudun,
And chin up Hannah hun,we are all here for you
