I know there are a few of us on the forum who were given tentative dates to see Dr Simka in March or April.
Now March is only a few weeks away, and I don’t think I’m the only one who is feeling anxious -
not just to be sure we are still on the list, but to have time for things like booking trans-Atlantic flights, arranging work schedules, and setting up child-care for the week+ we will have to be gone.
But I don’t want to bother Dr Simka with further emails because:
a) he’s BUSY! and
b) I don’t want to tick him him off, and
c) probably he just still can’t say anyway
I don’t want to be the one who annoys the busy man, but at the same time, there is another anxiety - what if someone who doesn’t mind bothering Dr Simka again becomes the squeaky wheel who jumps the queue and then the rest of us have our dates pushed back?
Now I still don’t need to have a *specific date*, even for March, yet. But I think what would be helpful enough for many of us at this point wouldn’t even be the actual dates for the procedure, but just an estimate as to *when we might know* what those dates would be. (One week? One month? Never, we’re all too much trouble?)
What do you think about sending him *one* email on behalf of all of us in this tentative March/April booking (heck, May people, too!) situation - before we all become desperate and start writing him individually again - saying just that - and with a FROM line something like “12 [or whatever] patients on thisisms CCSVI forum”.
Ideally, maybe someone who’s *already had their procedure* could send it on our behalf so that none of us waiters would get undeserved credit or blame…
What do you think? Again, the point is so that we don’t *all* start writing him again. And are there any Simka veterans who would volunteer to ask this on our behalf?
