is it weird to take information/research about a condition you have into your dr?
I got diagnosed with PCOS September 2011 and then had a baby July 2012 and since then my pcos has gotten worse.(going from 2 symptoms to at least 10) Throughout my pregnancy i only gained 9lbs and since having DD i have gained (even with breastfeeding) 30lbs. Since March 2011 (when i started having symptoms of pcos) i've gained a total of 60lbs. I went for an insurance check up and they told me because of my height and weight that i am considered "obese" (i don't look it because the weight is spread out evenly, i just look "thick") and that my good cholesterol is low and my bad cholesterol is high. I went into my dr and told him everything that has been going on with me, and he admitted that it was because of my pcos and claimed i haven't gained much weight (since when is 60lbs not much weight??). So after 4 months of eating extremely healthy and working out 6 days a week (carido and light weights) i have actually ended up gaining another 5lbs and have lost 0inches. Yesterday i called my dr and made another apt for next Wednesday, did a TON of research on symptoms and treatments, printed it, highlight every symptoms i had, and the treatments i want to try. I will be taking it in to my dr and making him look at them.
Dh says that im "crazy"and he has never known someone to be so weird to look up information then actually take it to the dr. He says he understands i want to get it under control, but he also doesn't think my dr is going to listen to me. I told him if my dr doesn't at least take my opinion into consideration when it comes to my body then i will just find a different dr until someone at least wants to help me get this under control.
Have you ever taken information you gathered into you dr? Do you think im being crazy?
