We are going to see Dr. Do tomarrow at cinncinatti childrens to see if Khyler is a canidate for the veptr procedure. Dr. Lenke's office called me on friday to tell me that they are putting Khyler's traction off for another month because the Dr. is too busy over the holiday weekend!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :mad: I am sooooooooooo angry how can you tell a person something is life threating for there kid and he needs emmediate care and then put it off for 3 months.

This may seem like an isolated unfortunate incident - the fact that your son has fallen through the cracks - but stories like this are repeated countless times. It's very sad! Doctors should be held accountable.

thanks for the info deshea i will do that it's a shame that so many people get the run around i thought it was just us till i got on here it is jjust crazy something needs to be done about this....... if Khyler's curve was detected eairly and properly diagnosed maybe we would have avoided surgery all togeather.... :mad:
