"Consultants very rude"

About: Princess Alexandra Hospital (Harlow)

I had an erpc today and the nurses on the wards was amazing and comforting but on the other when the dr who was doing the surgery came round to see me and i was explaining my history and the fact this was my 5th miscarriage and could i get more tests done for vitamin b12 deficiency they basically told me if i have that it was my own fault for not eating enough vegetables and said they wouldnt test me as i have two live children already and that they dont care if this is my 5th miscarriage they have made me feel very low and down and making me think it is my fault this happened but i am glad they wont see me again as i wouldnt want to be treated like that again i have been told how good lister is and will most defiantly be getting referred there by my gp
