Default Determined to know. . . .

Hello, everyone, I hope you all are having a great day.

I have read ALL the posts from this forum, and I am sooooooo mad. I have learned things from you ladies that none of my doctors ever told me.

The OB/GYN I have seen since puberty told me at age 20 I had PCOS, but he never did any blood tests or even an ultrasound to look at my ovaries. I have some of the symptoms, not all, and some not very bad. Since then I have seen 3 OB's and my primary care physician. He looked at me like I was crazy. I am going to threaten to write all over his office walls with a permanent marker if he doesn't give me a referral to an endocrinologist IMMEDIATELY!

Thank you so much for being there for those people who don't know very much about this, and helping to educate us. Whether I have PCOS or not, I want to know how all of you are doing. I will get back to you on my findings.

267: Highest known weight
242.5: Weight on dd's 1st birthday
213: Weight on day I delivered dd (Whooshed past on 7/6/10)
200: Weight on day I went home from hospital after delivering dd (MET!! 1/24/11)
180: Lowest weight ever as an adult
170: Initial goal weight (subject to change)
