Injection appointment

Hi Dr. Bland
I am wearing my splints now for 2 weeks during the night. My left hand is slightly better but now I have pain all the way up to my elbow. My right hand hasn't changed much. I think it got a bit worse.
We spoke about injections in both hands on the 15th of December. Could you please confirm the appointment? I have an appointment that morning in a different hospital. So any time after 10 am would be fantastic. Thank you

We're not sure yet whether we will have anyone in on the 15th to inject. We should find out tomorrow (Monday) I hope and I'll post another message then. JB

Very sorry but I'm a afraid there will be no-one able to inject this week - a matter of staff sickness so not much I can do about it. I hope we will be able to do something in the week before Xmas. JB

Ok. Thank you very much anyway. Friday the 22nd would be perfect.

Hello Dr. Bland
Could I have an appointment for injections please?
I wearing the splints every night but they don't work anymore.
After about 2 hours of falling asleep I wake up in severe pain. My right hand is really bad now. I don't know what to do anymore. I hope you can fit me in very soon.
Thank you.

Had my injections in both wrists on the 23rd of January this year. The result was fantastic. No pain, I could sleep through. All was fine. 3 days ago I started getting pain in my left hand again. Especially at night. Seems it gets worse by the day. My right hand is still ok. Is there anything I can do????
Thank you very much

Come back and see us again and we'll see how bad it is. I can probably fit you in as an extra tomorrow afternoon (Friday) if you are free. JB

I guess you didn't see that, or couldn't make it on Friday afternoon. I've made an appointment for Wednesday 13th June. Letter should go in the post Monday morning. JB

Hello Dr. Bland.
For some reason I haven't received a letter with the appointment on Wednesday the 13th. Could you please let me know the time via the forum???
I booked the day off.
Thank you

9:00am - so that you will have the rest of the day free. I wonder what's happened to the letter - the post isn't what it used to be. JB

I know.
Thanks again. See you next week.

Hi Dr. Bland.
I had now 2 injections in each wrist.
My last one was at the 23rd of June 2018
The pain in my right hand gives me sleeplessness nights again.
I just had 7 weeks of after a total knee replacement and thought I am fit for work. Now this again.
Is there any chance of a third injection? Or is it too early. Thanks for your help.
Regards Mario

No we could do that again. I've been away at a conference for the last few days but I'm back in the office tomorrow and we'll figure out when we can see you. JB

Good morning. I still haven't recieved a letter with my appointment. Now I am not sure if you have the right details for me. Could you please give me an appointment via this forum?
I haven't slept through in a fortnight now and feel really low. Considering acupuncture as well as it is so bad and nothing works for me to get rid of the pain.
Thank you

I have just received my letter with my appointment for the 29th of April. Any chance I could have an appointment earlier or is there a place anywhere else who can inject my wrists? Don't think I can cope with another 5 weeks with only little sleep ( about 2 to 3 hrs per night. Thank you

I've found a cancellation on Monday 1st April at 2:00pm and moved the appointment there. I'm out of the office tomorrow so I may forget to send out a new appointmnt letter but with luck I will remember to do that on Wed am - the appointment has definitely moved though - I did that through remote access to the computer system this evening.

Hi. Just to give you an update after I had my injections on the 1st of April. My left hand is absolutely fine. My right hand is good too. Just a slight numbness in my middle and ring finger. But I can sleep through the night and I am pain free. Thanks again

Thanks for the update. I'll add a note to the records and glad to hear it's better. You know how to contact us if it becomes a problem again. JB

Good morning Dr.Bland
My CTS is back in it's full evil in my right hand. Numbness all the time and sleepless nights because of the pain.
My left hand however is fine.
Could we discus a treatment at some point.
I would like another injection in my wrist but I dont know if that's an option. My last injection I had on april the 1st. Pain is back for about 4 weeks now. So it lasted only 4 month.
Looking forward to your reply

We could inject again as long as your NCS results have not gone markedly downhill,. I've put you in an appointment slot on 23rd September and we'll send out a letter. JB

Hello.
Just an update after the injection in my right hand on the 23rd of September.
I am still pain free which is a relief. The only thing I have permanent is the numbness in my fingertips ( middle and ring finger)
Do you think i should consider surgery?
Bit scared that the pain and sleepless nights are back soon

It's not bad enough that you have to rush to surgery but at grade 3 witha good response to injection you are a good candidate for the operation statistically speaking - you have about the best chance possible of a good outcome if you want to go for it and try to get it dealt with permanently. JB

I spoke about it to your colleague when I had my injection last time. I would like to go ahead with the operation on my right hand. But my issue is the timing. I know you were short staffed a month ago and you had no appointments. But if there is one available just before Christmas I would like to take it as i have a few weeks off anyway. It would help me a lot. Thanks for your quick response Dr. Bland.

We may be able to come up with something round about Xmas. I should be able to discuss it with the relevant people tomorrow morning. JB

Looks like we can find a surgery appointment in Ashford in general practice on 11th December or probably a space on an operating list here at Kent and Canterbury on December 18th, though getting you on to that one relies on the waiting list office processing the paperwork properly so there is scope for the admin to fail there. JB

Thank you for your quick response.
I can definitely take the 18th. The 11th is very difficult to get time off. So could you please put me on the list for the 18th and I hope for the best.
Thank you again
Mario

OK we'll send in the form to the waiting list office with a request for the 18th Dec. JB

Thank you

Unfortunately the waiting list office have already filled the 18th - this is the problem when I don't have direct access to the booking system for the hospital theatre lists. The next available spaces are now going to be sometime in January - sorry! JB

edit - It looks like we may be able to do the 20th Dec - I've emailed as well. JB

Mario

Just replied to your email.. yes the 20th would be a perfect day. Thank you

Hello Dr. BLAND.
Do you know if I made it on the list for surgery on the 20th of December?
Thank you
