Ever have to fight with your PA to get more answers??
About a year ago the PA I saw at my Doctors office left the practice. My new PA seems compassionate and understanding when I am in front of them.
Two months ago I had to push to get a test done that did reveal a problem that will need to be monitored closely.
But when the nurses call me back regarding other issues I keep getting the feeling I am being written off as "obese" and until I have a symptom that is not consider to be a "side effect" of my weight the response is .... "stick to the low fat diet and see if that relieves your symptoms"
I have been on a low fat diet since my gallbladder was removed over a year and a half ago, with new symptoms.
I have resolved to call and make an appointment directly with the doctor. Fingers crossed
