In shock at the moment, my husband who is only 47yrs old was told on a week ago that a brain scan done in 2016!! yes it has taken that long to see his consultant, showed signs of shrinkage and he is now classified as having onset dementia.
He has been put on medication for moderate to severe dementia, but no additional support offered or even basic information on how this will play out. I am reading suffer that is saying the average dementia patience lives 4 -5 years !!!
Does anyone else have experience of this side of MS. They have said he has active lesion in the brain which are making parts of the brain die and therefore the brain is shrinking.
What does the future hold, is it likely to be a short one now?
Totally gutted at the news and the lack of support and information supplied by Medway Hospital.
