Child health nurse: That small fontanelle will need to get checked out, I think they usually do an ultrasound. Talk to your GP about it.

GP: Yes, we can organise an ultrasound, no worries. Here’s a referral.

Radiologist at hospital: An ultrasound is pointless, we won’t learn anything from it, we’re not going to do it. Talk to a¬†paediatrician.


So now I need to find a paediatrician.

    Oh no & huge hugs. I understand your frustration, I hope you get some answers soon.

    I’d ask if everything’s OK, but I guess that’s exactly what you’re trying to find out! I hope everything is good and that people stop giving you the runaround.

    Very seldom are fontanelles an issue. It’s like crossing the street and hoping you don’t get hit by a car. Both my kids, who are fully grown and healthy, had this issue. We feared that oh no. It was the last we heard about it. I rough-housed with them, the whole bit. My son played hockey. My daughter water polo and gymnastics. It seems to be doctors’ way of overcharging you and thherefore the healthcare system and causing you undue heartache.

    Nonetheless, I should have said, I would not minimize the possible risk, and it should be checked out by a doctor. I was just trying to minimize your and Aidan’s concern.

    It IS true that both my kids had this, and both are now healthy.

    But of course, I am not a physician. I was simply pointing out that my kids, as the doctors claimed, are healthy that way.

What do you think?
