    Just wanted to update you all on this one. I made a complaint to Ahpra about the Doctor involved, the medical board has taken regulatory action against this practitioner. Unfortunately the outcome of the notification I made is not available publicly so cannot name him in this forum.

    I made the complaint to ensure no other women would suffer the same outcome as I did.

    Thank you to all those who commented and encouraged me to speak up.

    Well done YOU, @Reggie3 xx.  

    Terrific that it is now 'on record' and that some form of regulatory action taken against him - who knows, that may mean that any surgery he performs may need to be 'observed' - or even that he is not allowed to operate any more!

     I hope you are going well xx. take care xx
