OK, I already have an update! Thank you everyone for your condolences and prayers. ;-)
My dear poor ENT nurse had a family loss last night. That's why she didn't call me back. I totally understand -that sort of thing just makes you short circuit.
I think Isaiah 40:31 has a good guess and point. I've seen all sorts of sites during my research stating the Eagle Syndrome should be diagnosed more. Even a gland specialty site stateing what I had should be looked into as ES. The hospital where I had my scans had a sign that read: Walk ins Welcome! All a bit unerving. Judging from past hair salon experiences this is not a mark of excellence LOL. All joking aside it could add up to the internet creating a LOT of tire kickers before one has the staff to accomodate.
In the mean time I found out from my Chiropractor that it would be hard pressed to not have the images needed from the scans that were already done. Fortunately the radiologist took scans BOTH with and without contrast. I asked about why I wasn't receiving the IV at the test during the test and she explained then that she was doing both. On my disc it reads
Exam: Neck 01_Neck_IV (Adult)
I sent a letter back to Dr. Samji's office asking if they have a protocol for patients who were already acting in good faith based on what the office requested before . I also asked if perhaps Dr. Samji could speak with my ENT to clear up any vernacular. Here's the response.
<Whom did you speak to here giving you the verbal direction to the incorrect CT scan? We all use the exact same protocol language for Eagles patients so I would be curious to find out whom you spoke to, if you can recall.
1. Dr. Samji does his own measurements BUT the report showing the exact length of both styloids is a must (The radiologist is the person whom measures these, not the MD) before he see's you. So this will be needed to continue care here.
2. No, Dr. Samji wouldn't need to speak to them, the radiologist will know exactly what a CT neck NON-contrast styloid protocol is, its universal. Plus, you are not an established patient until after your first visit so we would not be able to discuss any of your history/scans etc without first becoming established with Camino ENT. That's a HIPPA law.
Hopefully this helps with an hiccups
step one: send disk and scan report with both styloid lengths to our office, then schedule a new patient "eagles visit". Make sure to specify eagles when you book as it gives you more time with the doctor.
Excited to start your care :)>
After speaking with my ENT's nurse she confirmed the HIPPA mandate. My ENT nurse and I came up with the game plan to have her ask the radiologist to do the measurements find the images needed for the "styloid protocol" request - and My ENT's office will send it to Dr. Samji's office c/o the assistant, along with my file notes with my permission - hoping that will give my situation more validity.
Thank you everyone for the kind messages. I hope this experience helps others :-)
OK time to "renew my strength" ;-)
