I called my nose doc's office 3 or 4 weeks ago after the nasal spray antihistamine didn't have any effect on my 3-year sinus headache and infection (CTs, MRI, and a bunch of cultures). I didn't get a return call.
I forgot about that because the headache was worse than usual during today's visit, even though I returned a couple of the samples he had given me. He carefully looked through my records - a big folder after 3 years' treatment, including sinus surgery, but not fixing the deviated septum. He gave me yet another sample of a slightly different steroid sinus spray. He ordered another steroid that I can't buy because it's not covered unless he orders it directly by mail order.
Then he made no mention of a return visit. I was so bummed by yet another waste of co-pay and 100 miles of driving, that I didn't think of rescheduling myself.
I've been thinking of finding another sinus doc. But there aren't many around, and he is actually very good, caring, knowledgeable and a very competent surgeon. But is he finally bored or frustrated with me? I'm not much fun when I'm in pain, and today is bad. (all my other conditions are acting up in chorus) I'll try the new samples of course, and see if I get a call about the new med order, and I'll look for a second opinion.
