to all over weight spine patients or orthopedic patients have you ever gone to a MD specialist ( surgeon) and found them not to take much interest in your pain. However they went on and on about you weight. I guess they forget that you see your self ever morning when you pull you self out of bed stand there in pain trying to wash up. Now if it was the foods you ate you would have gained 100 pounds the first year just sitting around. The problem is as we all know lack of movement and that is due to pain. But the specialist look at you as a waste of time , after surgery you wont help you self and you will continue to gain weight. You will not be a success story for them. Over the past year I have been to so many Dr.s I have spoke to some Dr. about how I feel about some of these specialists and they have agreed there are Dr.s out there that are bias and how they label over weight patients. I was just wondering how many out there in spine world has come across some.
