my appointment went well, and although the hospital messed up the appointments i still got to see prof pope, briefly! i was supposed to get a 45 min appointment, but i was booked in for 11am, the exact time prof pope was supposed to go into an important meeting!
. he was lovely, and told them he was going to be late and gave me a quick examine while he kept apologising for the mix up! he's gonna book me in for another appointment soon.
he did the beignton test thingy (i got 7/9, which i already knew
), looked at how much my feet flatten and ankles roll etc and qizzed me about my family history of bendyness. he managed to get all this done in less than 10 mins! wow!
. he even gave me homework! lol!
i have to write down my family history on a little chart, briefly describing any bendy traits or other health problems, and write a list of questions for him to answer. but all in all, even though the appointment was very rushed he was very helpful and gave me the temporary diagnosis of BJHS, which he will review once he's examined me fully. the examination must be pretty thorough if its gonna take 45 mins.... especially considering how much he got through in 10 mins!!!
so i'm really looking forward to the next appointment! and he had the most amazing hair!! it was huuge! it was like his hair had a mind of its own! very cool!
i also have my orthopedic appointment on wed at 11am, for my MRI. i'm hoping that goes well too!
