Do you dread going to the doctor when you know there is something wrong?

I have a doctor's appt coming up soon and I dread going. I have leg problems and one of the possibilities is surgery. I hate going to doctors in general because I don't like to wait. But I will go to them if I need to, this time, it is necessary because my leg almost gave out on me at work on Sat. I had to leave early and didn't really want to. If anyone else has had trouble with vericose veins, please respond. I did have that venus closure procedure done, but am still having problems. So going to the doctor is going to be very nerve wracking for me, because I am not the type of person to be laid up-I like to keep moving and be active.

oh so sorry for you. wish i had a solution for you. i dread going to the doctor for anything at all. i had to go once because of a bad rash on my face that was spreading. turned out to be allergies that run in my family. hydrocortisone helped clear it up.

Well,I am not afraid of the doctor but yes I am always engulfed with the fear that he may say something to me which I cannot accept at all.But,however you have to accept the truth at the end of the day,is not it?But,dear friend I wish you recover as soon as possible and wish you a good health for the rest of your life.

I used to dread them for the fear of injections and the thought of surgery. I got over that fear after having having been admitted to hospitals on about 4- 5 occassions for them to diagnose a problem that I had. Now I don't like going to them knowing fully well that they will treat me like a guinea pig. I think a problem like varicose veins should not be ignored. So if your think its still troubling you go and see the doctor before it causes any complications.
