Sarah Hyland Frustrated with Doctors for Not Listening to Chronic Pain Issues

By  | 

To say Sarah Hyland has been through a lot in her lifetime would be an understatement. The Modern Family actress battles kidney dysplasia and underwent a transplant thanks to her father in 2012. While the procedure was successful, the 27-year-old still faces many health problems and, in turn, chronic pain.

Last year was, according to Sarah herself, “the worst medical year of [her] life.” She suffered through a condition that ultimately put her on bed rest for several months, causing her to lose a lot of weight. You’d think, given her medical history, the actress’ team of doctors would be super in tune to her symptoms. But that’s not the case.

Sarah tweeted yesterday, “For those who are chronically ill and in chronic pain: Have you had the experience of doctors not listening to you? If so, how do you not tear their heads off with your bare hands? :)”

Fortunately, many of SH’s followers who also suffer from chronic illnesses let her know she’s not alone and gave her words of encouragement for dealing with doctors who simply don’t understand.

Sarah was also able to offer some love and support to one woman who is particularly struggling at the moment.

We can’t even imagine.
