Let me just say that my experience in general with the medical profession is that every ache & pain I get is attributed to my weight. I went to see a GP with concussion one time after an accident & he told me 'well, you are very overweight, you know'... I did know & it had nothing to do with my concussion.
They were both very helpful and supportive, both were just lovely
The doctors were the ones concerned about my weight, and were also supportive (it was a factor in my care, I didn't feel they were trying to demean me in any way ).
