Hospital misplaced me

Feb 20, 2017 3:03 AM

In October a standby doctor at the doctor office refered me to an endocrinologist.. A few weeks later I got a letter from "Haukeland university hospital" about an appointment. I could not stop laughing after I was done reading the letter 😂😂😂
I am 56 kg and I got an appointment at a section for obesity/overweight... 😂😂😂
My primary doctor thought this was hilarious! She called for an explanation and they told her that it was right where the placed me. The most funny part was that I got some information about a class I had to attend for getting weight loss surgery 😂😂

Last week I went to this appointment and everyone just starred at me.. The nurse in the reception needed me to confirm who I was several times before she checked me in. Nobody understood why I was there.
2 days later the hospital called me to apologise for misplacing me and they had fixed an appointment in two days(if they call you for an appointment it is usually something really wrong).
Even the endocrinologist apologised. 😂

The same day as my first appointment I also had that would be my last appointment at a ED clinic. My therapist laughed and said: "Well I know weight loss can go fast over there, but I dont think it is going that fast!" (Her reference was to the fact that I had two appointments in one day on each end of the weight scale)

I had at least some entertainment while waiting 😂😂
