Please proceed with your query
I just got a call frm my wife about 10 mins ago...
Is there a trouble?
she was complaining of partial loss of sight.. she was saying that she was able to see only part of the face of people in the train (she was travellling)
This is an emergency
she was saying that she was able to see only the right side of the face of people... she was not able to see the left side..
She needs to be examined as early as possible by a doctor
How long more is her journey?
any specific doc.. i mean opthamologist or neurologist
i am unable to get in touch with her now.. normally she does not pick up phones if the train is very crowded.. sent her a msg to call me..
she was also complaining of head ache.. she has been suffering from head aches..
Is the journey long?
we were planning to see a neurologist for that..
Is it a chronic problem in her?
1.5 hrs fm home to office.
Her blood pressure needs to be checked first
very sensitive to noise at home..
She can an ophthalmologist as she gets down from the train
Get her BP checked
Do not neglect this as it can be a serious problem too
Vision is very important for life
am about 2 hrs away fm her right now in my office..
She can the doctor by herslef
shud i b taking her to the doctor asap now.. or in the evening..
ASAP now will be better
i will try to convince her to do that..
i am trying to get in tuch with her.. and plan it accordingly.. thx
just a min
Wish her speedy recovery
Are you on call?
Are you there?
sorry.. she had called..was taliking to her..
she told me that she is fine now.. able to see clearly..
i have told her to sea a doc near her office asap and let me know what he says..
Then, you fix an appointment for the evening with the ophthalmologist
that is good too
will do that.
thx a lot.
but, the work up has to be done within next 2 days
It may recur, that is the reason, do not neglect it
hmm she told me that she had this exp about 2-3 years ago.
Something has to be there
it just does not happen normally
that is why get her BP checked
If it is normal, go ahead with other investigations
Do you wish to ask me anything else?
that's all. thx a lot.
Thank you too
Bye for now
