My MRI was back in June. June 17th to be precise. I was in the machine for 45 minutes whilst my brain and c-spine were being imaged.
Four weeks later I still hadn’t heard anything – I called the neurology secretary but there was no answer. I left a message but no one called back. Eventually around week five I managed to speak with someone.
I was told that my neurologist, busy man that he is, wouldn’t be looking at my results until the first or perhaps second week of August.
I wasn’t to worry because anything troublesome would be flagged and I’d have been contacted immediately.
Here’s the thing: a seven week wait?! Seven weeks? Even after he’s reviewed them I’ll be left waiting for a letter and a follow up appointment.
I have four more scans in the pipeline, a referral to an infectious disease doc and a lumbar puncture on the horizon. If there’s this long a wait in between things it’ll be a good 18 months before I’m receiving any kind of treatment surely?
