British doctors ?? now where exactly do they hide them ?? in 5 years I have not seen any. Except on TV ,and those do nothing in the real world . Australian doctors ? from what i have found out , not allowed to practise here as ” they would take British jobs”
Let us explore this , I know I am over weight , I know I have tried everything known to man to lose it but nothing will shift it ,have put myself in hospital trying to make it shift. so in the 5 years I have had ,
1 doctor straight out ridicule me ,when I told him what I thought it was , that was all he did.
2nd doctor was not 1 bit interested , but did try to tell me how to use my eye drops for glaucoma (that I had been using for many years ) when exactly did he become an eye specialist ? Also straight out lied to me over the drops I need .
3rd doctor only said well maybe your body likes to be that size ( yeah right )
4th doctor again not 1 bit of interest as to to why I was over weight …
5th doctor , after finally I found out what may be the problem, and lets face it no one wants to be over weight , I sure don,t, and as I am getting sicker all the time , need to fix it . My daughter told me she had just been diagnosed with something I had , until then never heard of , and urged me to get blood tests . So against better judgement , going on what had happened before , off i went . The doctors only comment ?? ohh I don’t know anything about that . So had the blood tests , next was to be an endoscopy if the blood tests proved what I suspected . Went back to doctor , only to have him tell me what I already knew , heart/lungs/liver/kidneys/blood count were all perfect. The result I was really needing ?? they bloody lost it ,was so bloody angry have not been back since, made the decision not to go near any other bloody doctor till I get home ( can’t come quick enough ) and well see a real doctor..
All the ones I have seen here can not even speak English properly , let alone understand it, a so called specialist flat out never asked about my weight , and flat out refused to believe a woman could get a groin hernia , I got it landscaping , and had , had it repaired once before I came here . Also I had ( still have ) back and neck injuries from a car accident . So his refusal to believe me that I had a groin hernia made it all worse, as it caused me to walk tilted to the side , and my back just couldn’t handle it , and was effectively re – injured it. What he did was to send me for a CT scan , which was the total wrong scan to do for the groin. So after keeping me waiting for months ,making my back worse he came up with nothing .
So off to yet another specialist who thankfully knew what I was talking about , correctly examined me and diagnosed me, problem fixed within 6-7 weeks ,not 4months waiting for the wrong scan results, doing even more damage to my back.
When I came here , back pain was under control , was in full time work , then the groin re tore , as can happen I now know . So that 1st so called specialist , not only caused me months of pain for nothing , but in the end also lost me my job .These days even walking is living hell as the pain is so much worse .
So someone please tell me where , other than on TV there are any British Doctors ?I know of people who were born here who have no idea where there are any . Does this make any sense to anyone ?
So with that in mind, and knowing the appalling way my much loved FIL was treated in 1 of the hospitals before he died , I have since cancelled my cataract treatment , and will leave that till I get home too.
At my sisters urging as I am very sick , I have decided to take things into my own hands and start treating myself , with the hope it will not make it worse, but I cannot go on feeling this sick, having this much pain . She says I really need to or I will be too sick to travel, she maybe right ,so without the correct diagnosis ,based on a 90% probability that I know what’s wrong I will start as from now .
So if anyone does know ( highly unlikely ) of a British Doctor please feel free to pass this on , and tell them thanks for nothing ..
Very first thing I will do when I get home is to go to a real doctor and get things sorted , the ones here have proved without doubt they are only in it for the money and do not give a s**t about anyone. My sister (bless her ) has already sorted that out for me , and is just hoping I will be ok to make it home .
My doctor told me that I had to give up drinking. It’s been 2 days and I’m getting dehydrated…
