Absolute shot in the dark. This is the guy that I am switching too since I seriously dislike the ent who did my sinus surgery...I went to him the day after I got the evaluation report, and on a whim, took the report with me. He offered to see difficult child. *** So we went today. *** The appointment was at 2. We left at 5. He wasn't in there the whole time, but he was in and out the whole time. Did head and sinus xrays, allergy testing, and then my mom took difficult child and the doctor sat down with me and his nurse for 45 minutes. *** He definitely agrees he's ADHD. He also disagrees that that is ALL we're dealing with. He sees traits associated with all sorts of stuff, and probably the most interesting statement he made was that he even sees narcissism. Why is this interesting? Because that's the only label that's ever been applied to bio dad. It was also suggested for difficult child 1. This doctor knows neither person nor that information. But interesting none-the-less. *** This guy LISTENED to everything. He saw more than a lot of difficult child's docs have seen in the years he's been going. He sees, in some ways, a grown person stuck in a little body - a judgement that he made based on what he saw, not what I told him....but then when I told him about difficult child's development, it confirmed for him that difficult child's development has been all sorts of all over the charts. Immature in many ways, but physically, he's way ahead of the game. *** He was concerned about Risperdal being our front line of defense. I explained the fiasco asking for behavior therapy instead of more medications, and since all of difficult child's current docs and and therapies are or would be thru the university, he put his nurse on to looking for a neuropsyche and team for an evaluation with a fresh set of eyes that my insurance will cover in Kansas City or St Louis at the Children's Hospital. He will have the xrays read (he beleives adnoids are enlarged) and put difficult child on a sleep pulsox for a couple of nights to see if its a problem, get him into an ent if it is. He was concerned about the frequent urination and wetting his pants on days that the behavior is so off, says that's not adhd stuff there (adhd doesn't make you pee) and the bowel movements in his sleep and in his pants the past couple weeks concern him enuf (and the fact a sleep eeg has never been done) that he wants the sleep eeg. He wants to see difficult child back in 3 months and plans to have him in to most, if not all, of these places before then. *** He says he probably can not give me a magic pill or cure, but he'll do his best to help us fix as many things as we can to give difficult child the best shot at a future. *** Absolutely nothing good may come of this, but the feeling of support and being heard right now is overwhelming. *** PS - He's a DO instead of an MD.
