It has taken me 4 weeks to recover from the mental trauma of my consultation with the surgeon. The reason for my visit was to discuss any possible options which could help my extremely distressing incontinence problems, without resorting to having a stoma.
Just wanted to discuss a couple of possibilities which were on the bladder and bowel foundation website and also on the NHS choices website. However the surgeon told me that he had never even heard of these websites and he certainly doesn’t read websites....he only reads medical journals and he had never heard of the 2 treatment options I had hoped he would discuss. He said if they were of any significance he would know about them.
I cannot understand why these treatments are on these sites and yet the surgeon totally dismissed them in a very arrogant manner.
I have no doubt that this surgeon is extremely skilled but his lack of empathy did him no credit and caused me a great deal of trauma
