I was just wondering how is the relationship you have with your neurologists? How caring / understanding / approachable are they?
I perfectly understand that in a teaching hospital you get very bust as a doctor, especially if you are head of the MS commity, but I can’t understand when she acts expeditive, as if she has more important things to do, as I’m nagging her with my questions and need of proper advice from a qualified specialist.
I had my LP on the 20th of November. They said the results will come up in about 10 days and that I will need to come and discuss them. After 11 days I messaged the resident dr. that is in charge of me, and she said that my neurologist hasn’t got the results yet, and that they will let me know when they do.
Today, I once again messaged the resident and asked if there is any news. I think asking once a week since the last 10 days since the puncture is not being nagging. It’s my right to know, or be told what is the next step. She called me and said that my neuro doesn’t have anyting to say to me now, but she is expecting me on the 19th, next week, to talk about some things.
After the call I was laughing by myself, thinking how ridiculous this situation is: I want to know only if my results came in, and she tells me that they need to talk about “some things”. Should I expect ta chat about mistletoe or maybe reindeer? Her answer just left me speechless, what could I have said more, without feeling like I’m taking all of her time?
I am curious to know your experiences with these people who, by being doctors, should not think that they are superior beings that no mortal pacient can disturb.
A lovely day to you all!
