KR's 9-month appointment was not with his pediatrician. He was at a medical conference. The guy that he saw was a GP. He tried to sell us his house in South Carolina...really.
Anyway I discussed a situation that I was seeing with KR's eye.
Do you see how his right eyelid is a bit droopy compared to his left?
The doctor said "Oh, that's Ptosis, I wouldn't have noticed it if you haven't said anything...I think we just leave it alone, but let me check"
He left the room and said "yep, mention it to Dr. Pediatrician at your next appointment (in March). See ya!"
I was just doing research and everything says that it should be treated immediately because it could cause vision problems later in life.
Do I take him back in to see the pediatrician? Or do I believe the GP? I've worked myself up in a panic...
Doctor called back-Pedi still not back so talked to the nurse of the GP that saw us a couple weeks ago. Was dismissed and told to re-evaluate at 1 year well check, he thought it would clear up on it's own. (Even though I noticed it since he was about 3 months old...I just kept forgetting to mention it to pedi.)
I had my cousin talk to her eye doc. friend-said that it could cause a lazy eye or amblyopia (in worse case senerio, which I don't think we're dealing with) but it will have to be corrected with surgery...So I called the pediatric eye doc...nothing available to book until March, unless I drive 1.5 hours away.
I'm so frustrated...what do I do?
