getting a 2nd opinion from neuro science hospital.
After the awfull appointment yesterday i was straight back on to my first choice before this all ended up being at my local hospital with my dead brain old neuro. LOL should not be like that he is doing all he can but i just want somebody with a fresh look at the case and a better hospital with lots of resourses at there fingers as i am not text book case and i need further investigation and i feel my neuro is just used to seeing text book cases and anything out of that is byond him or his too maxed out to cope with it so as i've only ever seen him on the NHS you are allowed a 2ND opinion so i rang back up the other hospital bi-passed the old referal and there was an appointment just waiting for me not till the May the 7 th but *** will do as he is doing the MRI and he is a MS specailist maybe its not MS or maybe like i say i need someone who has seen more unusaul cases like me and that would hopefully come from a good neuroscience hospital who knows its gone to neurology so hopefully i'll see one of many there and my old neuro can come to his decision and the new one can come to theres and i'll see where i go from here.
I feel abit better about it today the sun is shinnning and i am taking my friend out for lunch later, its a good day for now.
thank you for all your support on my other post you are all so lovely.
Good for you - keep marching on eh? I can't believe you found an MS specialist here in the UK, where is he? I might need his name!
My research tells me we have only 400 neuros in the UK and only 60 MS specialists, there are also only two 3 Tesla MRIs in the UK, one in London and one in Liverpool.
After a meeting with my GP last night who insisted my knee problem had been 'overuse injury' -bah!!!! how can I overuse my knees just walking around which is all I did? I'm a couple of stone overweight not 30 stone for goodness sake!
I have booked to see the neuro again but it will be the same one, as my region we have one guy, the other is semi retired. I am going to see him just to ask him for the name of another for a second opinion! My appointment is 8th April I'm lucky I'm still working full time so we are going to pay private to see him quickly (about £150) - we can do that now and still use the NHS - so I will keep you posted too.
Good luck with all of it Sam - enjoy the weather this week it's going to be a good one.
I will pray that the new neuro will only give you the truth, and in a kind and calming, not decending way. You have had enough ego and rushing to a decision. Enjoy the nice weather, and think about something else!
Wonderful. Altho May 7 seems like a long time away, the time will pass quickly. I know you will keep your timeline up to date. Let's pray this guys' interest will overcome his ego! Enjoy the sun, and the time with your friend. Try to just let it go for now, relax, and re-charge your batteries for another battle. I will be praying for a better outcome this time. At least you will have a new MRI for the new neuro to see.
