Just a quick hi :-)

Hey lovelies,

Just want to say a quick hi. Sorry I haven’t been around, lots happening and have also been pretending I don’t have MS .

Just been reading some of your posts to try and catch up.

Also, hi to all our new members

Sitting at work typing this and have to keep looking over my shoulder LOL!

When I get time I’ll fill you in on the latest happenings.

For now, take care.

Much love

Hi again, Firstly, hope you’re not so sore today Poll Xxx.

As I said, I have a new consultant. He was mentioned to me by my GP when he first referred me to neurology last Feb but obviously I couldn’t pick and choose my own consultant . The consultant I was referred to was okay but is not an MS specialist and after my last consultation earlier this year left me with ‘I’ll see you in 9 months’. So, off to my GP for a referral to the consultant he had mentioned to me.

Within a month I had my appointment. I have now seen him along with my MS nurse and if I may start from the end…when I left his surgery I told him he was a breath of fresh air. He showed me my MRI scans (which I’ve never seen) and explained that he was not happy with either the quality or the way they had been taken. So, I am booked in for another MRI scan on my head and upper spine (only had head scanned last time) at the end of this month and have to have dye injected, as I’m needle phobic I’m stressing. I also have to have more blood tests so more needles, more stress. I know to some people injections are nothing but I hyperventilate so am taking diazepam before I go.

I am seeing my consultant a week later for my results……if he wasn’t on annual leave I would have seen him for the results the day of the scan!! I had to wait for 3 months the last time I had a scan.
To sum up, regardless of the outcome of the new tests I feel so much more looked after.

Regarding work, I’m doing okay, building back up to full time. Don’t know how long I can keep it up but for now its one day at a time. 45 redundancies at work and we find out who next week. I’m safe (for now) but so feel for the 120 people who were given ‘at risk’ letters.

Apologies again for not being around recently.

Much love
Oonagh
