This could be rare, this could only happened in my country, who knows?
Doctor : You are sooo fat!
(In Malay : awak ni gemuk sangat ni)
Me : *look at myself*
*look at her and trying to figure out what a monster she is*
Doctor : Do you have High BP or Diabetes?
Me : No
Doctor : How can you assure that?
Me : I have neither been prescribed, nor been taking any of the (BP/Diabetes) meds.
Doctor : No, you need to ____(insert all tests)___ bla bla
Me : *pause with confusion*
*but then you ran test on my baby and couldnt detect any problems*
*and then 10 hours later she got infection (leading to sepsis)*
*moment of silence*
I have been hating doctors for not providing a clear answer.
And yet in Scenario 1 she said Im overweight, whereas Im absolutely normal in size, probably marginally overweight but I have no muffin tops, no back fat and definitely shocked when is told that I am (really) fat.
(Read : THEY easily jumped to a conclusion. Without tests. What is YOUR basis then?)
*but I was not trying to be rude, so I kept it silent*
So what if I am curvy?
Me after confinement
So based on Scenario 2, set aside PIH, I have no serious illness(es) and what did you suggest to me?
Regular check-up? What kind?
1. BP and glucose test
2. Kidney function?
3. Early cancer detection test(s)?
4. MRI? DNA sampling? *ROFL*
What if I did all the above and lets say in 15 years, I'll die unanounced, what you may have answered?
Probably these? :
1. Heart complications/heart attack/stroke (unnoticed, you might say)
2. We didnt know (just what you told me about my baby)
What's with the attitude?
