We are living in sad times. I was operated about a year ago and spent 14 days in the hospital. Going into the hospital I was 100% fine with my hearing. Once I woke up, it was a life changing wake up call because I woke up deaf. This all occurred during the time I was waiting to get operated. Until this day it has been a constant battle finding an ENT (Ear Nose and Throat) who can exam my system. The only referrals here are for audio only testing and that does not help at all. I am hearing more on my right ear due to constant cleaning with Peroxide Water. This is the only remedy available when the Medicaid does not cover at all. We are dying a slow death in Puerto Rico.
This situation has brought so much sadness into my daily life. Yet, these doctors are so lazy, that they cannot perform a more detailed exam. Nothing gets solved with our Health, unless we end up six feet under. It is time for our Government to step up to the plate and fix this situation at hand. Our people need medical attention and our politicians are sleeping with our money.
It is time for our commity to step up to the plate in order to bring our specialist back because our health cannot be played with.
