Well I went to the hospital this evening and got bored being the only person in the waiting room and not being seen so I said smurf it and came home.  I'm really not amused.  I'd have waited longer but I have a 14 hour day ahead of me at work tomorrow, and as one of the few people in this province not on welfare, I need to go to work- tens of thousands of people are counting on my paycheque and taxes...   ::)

Def that is no good mate  :( :(.

Could you try calling the ENT specialist who ordered the CT  :think:. I reckon they would already have the CT results & if you say your condition has worsened & ask them if it would be possible to get an earlier appointment  :think: :think:.

Mate I hope things improve for you  :ahhh :ahhh

I'll see about trying to get to see the ENT tomorrow.  I have a long day ahead of me today but I'll make time to call and set up an appointment for tomorrow.

Good luck Grant. It all sounds pretty unpleasant.

My wife's a nurse and said the super awesome smart people that get drunk and ride their bikes in traffic then get hit by cars get seen right away in the hospital... so put that as plan B if you dont get anywhere waiting. :D 

Our health care system is ok, but Ive had my share of waiting as well.

I'm back from the specialist again.  He says he sees nothing wrong on the scan, but as I was in the hospital for it on Sunday night I guess he figured he'd better have another, closer look.

What he's thinking now is that some tendon is either hanging up on or slipped off of the hyoid bone and he has injected some kind of steroid into my neck to see if that causes it to straighten itself out.  If it's going to work, it should work within a few days according to the Doc.

Again I'm not convinced, but at least we are doing something.  I know there are a lot of parts in the neck and I figure if we do enough things, something is eventually bound to solve the problem.

If he's right, and if this works it could be permanent or it could last for a few months.  The good news is, if it only lasts a little while then theoretically I can go in just about any time things go wrong, get another shot and be on my way.  Maybe not ideal, but certainly beats the alternative.

I don't think it's going to be that easy, but it's worth a try anyway.

Good luck boss, hope you have better luck with injections than I did.  The first round on my knee were great, and lasted longer than they were expected to.  Sadly, the second round didn't do anything except cost me my copay.  :(  I'm now on track for surgery #3.....

There's no such thing as "Too pretty to carry".  There's only "Too pretty NOT to carry"...... >:D
