Mri results

I had my mri at the end of june and called the hospital to see what was happening and was told the specialist was in the middle of 10 wks leave . I was not amused . Then the receptionist said it would be the end of october before i could see him . I asked what would happen if he died surely some one else should stand in for some of that 10 wks its a joke i wonder if you all think the same x

hi donna it can be worrying waiting for your mri result as ive had long waits for both my mri results and i would say not to worry to much as usually a doctor checks you results as they are carried out to make sure they are ok ! if they was any urgent problem your doctor would have seen you soon after the scan so try and relax and put it to the back of your mind i wish you well take care david

There will always be another person taking their place you could ask for help there.

If it were me, I would ask for a member of their team to get in touch to discuss the content of the scan. There should be a Registrar or another Consultant covering. Even if you were told, nothing to worry about and the detail will be discussed then surely that is better than nothing?

That's good, it's just a shame that you had to chase it up in the first place.

I had an MRI in June last year and am still waiting to see the specialist. Apparently he had written to my GP but assumed I didn't want to see him, so left it up to GP to refer me back if there was a need. I didn't know that, so didn't ask the GP, so 13 months later I am finally back on the clinic list but don't expect to be seen much this side of Christmas. Its a bit of a joke, as my spine has deteriorated a lot in that year, so I likely need a new MRI now anyway.

Im sorry to hear you are being messed around out of sight out of mind hey ? I think we need to make a nuisance of our selves some times to be heard x

Ask your GP to get the results for you. The people who do the MRI produce the results. The consultant decides on the treatment.
