Doctor Tells Woman She’s Not Ill, ‘Just Fat’ – Two Days Later He Regrets It Bitterly…

A woman had been experiencing severe abdominal pain and sought out the help of a gynecologist. But instead of examining her, he called her "fat" and sent her away. Two days later the correct - and shocking - diagnosis came to light.

What happened to Michelle Bell from West Sussex is a horrible event that could have ended fatally for the Briton: because she, for a while, had felt severe pain in her abdomen, and her period seemed to have been getting stronger, the 38-year-old went looking for a gynaecologist - but what happens then is just incredible.

Being sent away by the gynaecologist

When the mother of two described her symptoms, her doctor reacted differently than expected: "I explained my symptoms to my doctor (...) I paused, expecting that he would examine me and order tests to be carried out; instead, he leaned back in his chair and raised an eyebrow, 'You're just overweight,' was all he said, "says the 38-year-old British woman to the Sun. Even when she insisted on being examined by him, the doctor told her to lose weight. "I was speechless; my mouth was literally open," recalls the Briton.

Shock diagnosis: cancer

A few days later, Michelle visited another gynaecologist who examined her directly after she described her symptoms - luckily! As it turns out, the 38-year-old was suffering from ovarian cancer. One day later, the mother of two was lying on the operating table - her entire left ovary and several cysts from the right ovary were successfully removed. Now, the Briton is cancer-free for the time being. What would have happened if she hadn't have gotten a second opinion, Michelle doesn't even want to imagine: "My doctor had neglected my symptoms simply because of my weight. Had I have listened to him, the cancer would have spread and my children would have maybe grown up without their mother."
