It seems that so many people are getting so angry at their doctors advice as well as their hv. They will go with a question and get an answer and then come home and say their doctor doesn't know anything. So why go in the first place if you already know the answer? Sorry, I'm just frustrated on this, it seems to be coming up a lot here lately, and this IS NOT aimed at anyone specifically. Yes, I know doctors can get set in their ways and do things out of habit, but they are not malicious or cruel in their intentions. I'm also really not sure how so many people seem to know the "current and up to date" information that these doctors seem to not be giving us? Really, unless you go to medical meetings, talk to the CDC or WHO then how does anyone besides a doctor know what's best? I know we as moms need to be very vigilant in how we deal with our medical community and we must be aware and kept up to date. But I think that has to include an open and honest relationship with our doctors. Instead of getting angry and saying they don't know what they were talking about, why not ask them more and tell them what you have learned, see where the conversation can take you. As well, it's so important to get a doctor that you can trust. I know here it's incredibly hard to get a doctor at all, the dr per patient ratio is in a horrid state, so that's easier said than done. But for the well being of our children, don't keep going back to the same doctor if you keep getting bad information. Sorry to rant girls, I just wish more people would talk more openly with their doctors and health visitors and question them, and have a nice dialogue to get to a trusted place between everyone.
