Cellphone Re-hello


#1

Eye doc called me back, opthomology doesn’t like to mess with cortisone injections except in



emergency cases. As in, rapidly progressing vision loss + mine isn’t that. Just this slight,



stable blind spot.He suggested a consult with the folks in neurology, who know more about



the effectiveness of it + I was wondering what good that would do me since they aren’t



opthomologists + he said opthomologists deal in progression, if things aren’t


progressivly worse(sightwise) its time to look elsewhere, for issues of pain. Besides which,



its not just one shot, its 13-17 days of continuous corstisteroid therapy. (IV, the oral pills)



Something that needs the oversight/input of a regular doctor.



So, I called the neurology department + was told I needed a referral( No one gets seen



without a referral, even though my insurance company doesn’t require one.). Then I called



opthomology back + left a message for the eye doc that I needed a


referral. Hopefully, this is all going to happen sometime soon.REALLY soon. I hope he makes



that crystal clear.
