Vindication

On closer inspection, the scan I had last week revealed that I do have a certain amount of calcification and build-up of fluid in my achilles. It's gotten me an appointment with a doctor who specialises in sports medicine and who is, I'm told, extremely knowledgeable about that particular tendon, having made it his special area of expertise. I just hope he won't try and fob me off with another 10 sessions of PT.

I should never have let it get this far. I should have been more insistent from the start.

Out of interest, how did you get them to re-examine your scans? I have a vexing medical problem that I need answers to, I'd like to speak more strongly to the Dr, but I'm not sure how to go about it. :(

It wasn't hard: I just phoned them up, outlining my complaints and respectfully requesting they have a think as to what else it could be. It only took two of these calls for them to go back and reexamine the evidence more closely.
