Re: Medical Update--Possible Setback.

^^ Good idea. It wouldn't be the first time a doctor's office overlooked something vital.

Re: Medical Update--Possible Setback.

Had the CT Scan yesterday. Will be doing the bloodwork in the next week or so. Have no idea when they will book the follow up appointment though. I'm guessing not until the first couple weeks of August. Meanwhile no change in pain.

Hope this all gets resolved soon buddy, try to stay positive.

Just remember, when you are sick, don't get depressed as then you will have two problems, you are sick AND depressed.

positive thoughts!

Best of luck!!

And keep prodding them, it sounds like they're as slow as mollasses! They should've had the blood tests done weeks ago! Be your own advocate!

Re: Medical Update--Possible Setback.

Yeah, they sure know how to take their time. I can understand prioritizing HTR, but the blood work really should have been done at the last visit.

Re: Medical Update--Possible Setback.

Oh, I'm of high spirits. Thanks for the well wishes. On the one hand...I'm glad this is taking as long as it is, because my foot is rather complex compared to other people's feet. So the fact that we are going through the motions is to me a good sign we're covering all the basis. The bloodwork should have been done when I was at the hospital the first time earlier in the month. The fact that it has been ordered so late, makes me think that it isn't a real serious possibility. I am thinking they are more concerned with it being a possible gout.

The heat wave here in Vancouver has been basically masking the pain...it's been a double edge sword, because it's what is essentially allowing me to walk, yet it is causing my ankle to swell like a balloon as well.

Hopefully the CT scan reveals some answers. This pretty much has disrupted my entire summer lol.

FWIW, when we thought I might have gout, the first thing the doctor did was... order blood work. Uric acid level, IIRC.

I hope you get some answers soon!

Re: Medical Update--Possible Setback.

Yeah. I just wish the bloodwork was ordered right away. Well...looks like I have a bit of a wait ahead of me. I was just informed this morning that my follow up appointment won't be until September 18...which was longer than I anticipated. At least I will be able to try and enjoy the rest of the summer.

Re: Medical Update--Possible Setback.

That's nearly two months! I hope they are going to at least call you with the results of the tests. If you don't hear from them soon, I would pester them by phone to get some answers.

Re: Medical Update--Possible Setback.

Yeah I wasn't too pleased...I did inquire as to why it was so long in between appointments, but it was late in the day so hopefully I get a response on Monday. The surgeon does get often called out of country for other surgeries and what not. If the pain gets any worse I will call for an earlier appointment.

Re: Medical Update--Possible Setback.

Bloodwork has been taken care of now and sent off back to the office. I am in the process of attempting to get an earlier appointment, but he is currently unavailable until the date I got...and frankly I don't want another scenario where I'm seeing interns again.

Re: Medical Update--Possible Setback.

I would give them a few days and then pester them to give you the results of the tests over the phone.

Re: Medical Update--Possible Setback.

I emailed the secretary and pressed my situation...and she stated that she would have the surgeon look at the CT scan ASAP. I brought up the infection possibility along with the fact that I didn't want to wait another month and a half to have that knocked off the list. She has always been very accommodating to me, and we're on a first name basis now so I've been very appreciative of her efforts on my behalf.

The pain has started to lessen a bit...it's cooled here...so I don't know if that has had anything to do with it. It's the first real significant change since it started.

Re: Medical Update--Possible Setback.

^^ That's good to hear. I hope the doctor is as accommodating as the nurse.
