My boyfriend and I had a rather serious motorbike accident when travelling in Mykonos few days ago. We got treated at the hospital in Mykonos and was then transferred to a hospital in Athens overnight, by a military plane. My boyfriend has got a lot of stitches on the head... I got 5.
We got sent to the General Hospital of Athens (Genimmatas) and went through CT scans and x-rays.
As we return to Canada (we're Canadian) however, we wanted to ask the doctor for the images of the CT scans and x-rays. The doctors say they could not provide us with the images, but told us they did not identify any further problems after examining the scans.
A friend told us that we should avoid doing all these scans again when we return to Canada because its a lot of radiation we are taking in.
Any recommendations on how to obtain further reports of our scans? Because we only received a stamped letter saying we're in a stable condition and some figures which look like results of our blood tests.
Thank you so much.. any sort of help or experience is appreciated!!!
On another note.. I find the members of the Mykonos hospital as well as the Athens hospital very professional.. I was really pleased with the care they provided to us, given that we weren't in a position to negotiate (both injured and weak). We also used the service of the Canadian Embassy here and found them helpful in most times.Edited: 09 October 2011, 10:37
