sorry about delay in update, i've been very busy.
So the injury was July last year, it took until may to see a specialist about it, he did an arthroscopy on the 20th of May to see whats going on. My post-op appt was booked, but I had no notice to sort out hospital transport, and I informed them I couldn't make it, a phone appt was arranged.... that is until the system discharged me for 'missing an appt' even though my rheumatologist told them i couldn't make it. I have now been penciled in on paper (as the system wont let me back in!) for tomorrow. I don't know what will happen regarding if they found something and can fix it how are they going to if I've been discharged. Oh well I guess I'll find out tomorrow.
The other problem I have been having since doing the injury, is that my hands are too long for standard splints... They haven't made me one that'll fit, and I am pretty much constantly in some level of pain where the splint digs in between the frist finger and thumb, its red and angry looking all the time, and sometimes when the splint has slipped in the night, I wake up from the pressure with swollen fingers and pain. My hand therapist (who i was seeing about finger splints) talked about it but never did anything, i am now discharged from there, hopefully the 'drop-in' physio I'm seeing later can do more than supply yet another spint that wont fit right.
I am seriously considering putting in a complaint about the whole situation as firstly it shouldnt take 10 months to get to see a specialist!!! I am going to wait until i hear what they've found before making any desicions. Any advice would be welcome, as I'm not sure of the procedures on waiting time etc
