OMG ! Please put some clothes on while reading this post !
I was 20 minutes in the waiting area of Ronda hospital, Spain, on 30Dec14 before going in for a consultation with my sweet Neurologist.
It’s amazing what I heard the nurses say ………
….. I had to put up with some waiting patients grumbling ….
….. and what I read on the wall.
To bring you up to speed I have been diagnosed with the rare CIDP Lewis Sumner. My hands vibrate especially when holding anything ……
……. and my balance isn’t too good !
It’s difficult for me to do anything !
I have had 4 different treatments. None of them worked, some causing dreadful side-effects…..
……which were quite upsetting.
I went in. Sat down. She was on the phone.
It turned out that test results were missing from my file and it transpired that I have 3 hospital files under different names !
My first name.
My middle name.
Thank heavens I am not called Don (Spanish for Mister) Ulysses Thomas Spencer !
Keep up !!
No wonder I have Lewis Sumner ! This latest Spanish hospital cock-up is added to my incorrect middle name “Citizen” on my house deeds and the 3 numbers for my Spanish house 131, 137 & 143 when I confused you in this old post.
At least my Neurologist didn’t blame me for this mess !
These are all my files in the government. police, medical Spanish system. There should really only be about 10 altogether !
My Neurologist was quite upset. This was the time to give her a hug.
After all she is human like you.
I would be upset if she did this !
As I live alone she recommended that I apply to Spanish Social Services for a carer/care giver. It will take about a year for them to say yes or no. If future treatments don’t work then I may need one.
She told me that my next one-off treatment will be an anti-mag IV/drip.
I hope there is no side-effect this time.
I would be happy if the drip fixes me ……
…… and so will she !
If it doesn’t work this may be a possible future treatment
She gave me my IV/drip appointment date and time.
It’s at the end of January 2015 !
Let’s have a bit of fun ! What would you artists, cooks, seamstresses, etc. put in my IV/drip and what side-effects would I experience ? Make it as wacky and silly as you are !
