well, guess what? Ryan still hasnt recieved his appointment for the rhuemotologist. I phone the hospital weekly and was told today although the GPs second referral letter stated Ryan needed to be seen urgently, more imformation is required before he can be given an appointment. I phoned his GP, but unfortunatley he is off on holiday for the next month. I cant get Ryan an appointment with any of the other GPs at the practice until the 19 of July. He is describing bleeping in his neck. His physio is concerned it is severely affecting him in school. Ryan has been given detention 3 times in the past 2 weeks for talking instead of doing his work. Ryan is unable to do his work due to the sensations in his neck, although he does have to learn when he cant do work because of his condition, he has to stop talking. I feel so sorry for my wee man, its bad enough he has to cope with this awful condition he has, but would really love for someone to help him and try to understand what he goes through. Im putting in an official complaint with the hospital, and considering going to my MP aswell.
