rod123 Posted October 28, 2009 Share Posted October 28, 2009 (edited) Hi all, we all have moans and groans about the way things are dealt with, i've done it myself (yesterday when rehab clinic told me i was doing too much for Merrill) but to be fair to them a little bit of praise today. On monday i phoned the consultants secretary in who is in charge of Merrills rehab and asked if the consultant could give me a call to discuss this confabulation thing which Merrill has (it had all started up again just latley along with other little things) When i took merrill to the clinic yesterday they took Merrill through to where she was working and said could you wait there a moment, which i did then the consultant, the clinic sister and two other people called me into office and sat and discussed Merrill with me, asked my concerns, and i told him her mobility getting slightly worse at times, confabulation, memory very poor at times,sleepless night and loads of other thing (i suppose i chucked it all in for good measure) after that he said what do you think could be causing this then and i said i don't know you're the doctor but i did wonder if her shunt was beginning to block and striaght away he said to the sister right get on to merrill gp and get her to ask for a scan to put minds at rest, then we will talk about confabulation,any thing else, I said i was told off for doing too much for her but she is not the person she was before this happened if i did'nt feel i needed to do so much for her i would'nt do it, He said she never will be that person again you must never compare the new Merrill with the old one this is like a bereavment the old Merrill is gone, He then went on to say that the clinic always work with the husbands at a later stage but i think you need some counciling now,which i don't think i do as i do accept that Merrill will be different not worse different and some of the changes are good one's but anyway i accepted the offer of councelling incase it is me that is wrong and perhaps i do need it, so booked in tuesday for first session. The way they dealt with my phone call made me feel that they had attached some importance to it and the help they offer could'nt be better and they made me feel as though i'd sat there and talked and that i'd actually been listened to and as you all know this is not always the case, but what excellent service.
