My son has had problems with his ears since he was born. It is causing problems with his speech and therefore interfering with his learning. I have had doctors referring him for surgery for years and I have heard nothing back! I even went as far as booking him in privately. The day before his surgery was due to take place the private hospital rang and told me that my private health didn't cover it anymore as I did not have hospital cover. Everything was paid for and ready to go! I didn't have nearly $3000 to get him in the next day so I had to cancel the surgery. Since then I have had him referred by two separate doctors again to The Townsville Hospital and have heard absolutely nothing back! I was hoping to have it fixed before he started school but that didn't happen! I'm concerned that his hearing will effect his learning and I just want to give my child the best possible chance at his education like any other child! Please help me find out why we haven't been contacted about surgery yet after nearly 1.5 years of waiting?
