"No decision and no feedback."

About: Southampton General Hospital

My GP arranged for a consult to look at saliva/drooling/dribbling from one side of my mouth. As a result I was sent to Lymington Hospital and had a consult on 03/09/2015. This resulted in MRI on 20/10/2015 and CTI on 20/10/2015. The follow up was on 04/02/2016 and I was so disappointed that I was given no idea what the problem was . Even my GP thought maybe saliva glands or even a mini stroke, but the consultant seemed to have no idea and said I will refer you to a colleague, which of course has not happened.

I realise that my issue is not life threatening but I did feel that my treatment was not up to standard. I will go back to my GP and see if there is another route I can take to sort my problem out.
