Sorry for the delayed reply.
That is the problem with some Radiologists, if they see something as a "normal variant " or “incidental finding” they simply don’t report it.This has ,possibly , paid a great disservice to potentially thousands of patients who are walking around unaware that they have the calcification and subsequently suffer the myriad of symptoms of ES without any clue of the cause and don’t know where to turn to seek help.
In the UK we have the Daily Mail newspaper and a few years ago ran a patient story which was along the lines of “150 visits to the G.P. then man Googles his own symptoms and finds the diagnosis of ES”.
Even then he had to do his own research to find the appropriate Consultant, even then he had to pay as a private patient (?? free NHS) to eventually have the operation and return to a healthy life.
There is an irony here, in that, free NHS in UK, everybody pays in the USA yet in both systems Money talks !! Our Consultant gets paid directly into his pocket when he sees a private patient. Your Consultant operates within the boundaries of insurance companies unless, I guess, you have a couple of million dollars backing you. I guess you would soon get the surgery you need and deserve. Healthcare, anywhere, still cares about patients but is rife with greed.
You take care
