The biggest problem with expectations …………
…………. is actually having them!
I think if l didn’t have them then l wouldn’t be so disappointed at times.
I had stupidly huge expectations for this afternoon’s appointment, and was badly let down. I got back at about 2pm but just didn’t feel like doing anything except taking a nap.
The specialist wasn’t able to prescribe me any stronger medication, which was a let down, so l am still on tablets that are not actually doing the job.
All he basically said was that l had a shoulder problem, and ran through several Latin named diagnosis, and that orthopedic was his department and that l would have to see a spinal guy for the pinched nerve.
That he needed more tests such as x-rays and potentially another MRI, before he could confirm whether l was to receive key-hole surgery, open surgery or injective surgery whatever that is. That l had problems with my rotor cuff, as well biceps tendonitis and something wrong with the back of the shoulder. He confirmed that my shoulder was not in the best places and had seen better days.
Twenty minutes later l walked out of the appointment with the message that in another two months l would hear something.
Another thing l simply fail to understand is why we actually talk to consultants and doctors in the first place if they then don’t communicate everything to the next rung up? Why did l have to go through everything yet again when my notes are in file?
To say l am a tad fucked off is an understatement. Just more pain, great, brilliant! Awesome.
