my easter down fall

Postby slimmindown » Wed Apr 11, 2007 10:54 am

wel i have eaten worse than ever this weekend which extended into this week. I have gained a kilo and feel like crapolo.

Not that its an excuse but Billy(cat) has been really aick with the cat flu after his tummy bug last week. My sister also had some bad news. she has 9 lesions in her brain which her GP thinks is probably MS. we are off to the neurologist today at 12, too get a confirmation. she has two small children, and we are all finding it a little tough going, hence the eating.
Its also why I havent been on much , well I better go and get readt to go in to the city. not sure if there will be any good news but my fingers are crossed for a miracle :cry:

well guys it is fantastic the support and friendship that this forum gives out. I really appreciate it 100 times and more.

We got to the neurologists yesterday at 11 ,(appt at 12 but so nervous we couldnt stay home any longer), and spent an hour with the professor of neurology at St vincents. He looked at the MRI and examined my sister and then the miracle happened, he said that yes ,she has 9 lesions in her brain, but it was due to atypical migraine syndrome. this means that one,she doesnt have MS ,and two, the radiologist who said she did deserves to be shot for trying to diagnose something of which he knows to little about.

the symptoms she gets are numbness in her face and visual disturbances and she has some leg numbness,which she always thought was sciatica ,and it is. She doesnt get the headache normally associated with migraine,just the neurological symptoms in her face and eyes. we feel like we have won tattslotto, and hit the jacpot ten times over.
I had planned on selling my unit and moving back to the country to help her raise her kids and look after her and we had all made the plans for the life changing adjustments needed.

so thank you everyone for your well wishes,they worked and my sister now feels sorry she upset the people she told about her MS and the radiologist needs to go back to school and learn how not to scare the living dayligths out of peope till he has a spoken to a specialist..

of course I bagged my sister out for making me put on a kilo for nothing, she got the joke and all is sweet.. :lol: :lol:

Kate i'm really sorry to hear about your sister, MND is a terrible disease and you all must be so affected by its devastation, I hope you know I am always here to talk to if you need to in the coming months, and your sister gets the best care in her time of greatest need..

thanks deb for the support ill keep you in mind for that chat especially over the coming months!

thats wonderful about your sister and i think that it has really made you see the bigger picture. it will help you personally as well to help strive towards your goals and as i said in the PM, it wouldve been a big weight off your shoulders.

it sounds like you are a wonderful sister to even contemplate moving to the country and selling your unit to help her out. im sure she appreciates the warm gesture and also that you were there to hold her hand during the last few days.

i just wanna give you a big squeezy hug!

Hi Deb I totally missed this post as I don't always get all the way around the forum these days. I am so glad your sister wasn't diagnosed with MS you must all be so relieved. What a scary time that would have been and I am happy it all worked out well for you all.

*Hugs* :D

What a relief Deb! Doesn't it drive you nuts when people just come up with some rubbish diagnosis that totally changes your life without a care in the world for how heart breaking that can be?

My mum was told by one of my doctors when I started treatment that I really didn't have long to live - WHAT RUBBISH!!! The whole point of the treatment is to give me longer to live! My family were heartbroken and mourning a death that is certainly not coming any time soon.

They say without the downs you wouldn't appreciate the ups. Enjoy that feeling you got when they told you she was ok, and take the opportunity to appreciate that she's sticking around a while longer.

yeah i hate it when they give false information. for example- and i think you guys have been told this before:

1. the dr told my mum that she had an affiar with someone because my dad had a vasectomy in 1978 and therefore couldnt be the father of me in 1985

2. the dr told my dad that he had hepatitis which is why his skin was a shade of yellow- turns out he had liver cancer

3. i told my dr i had the signs of pcos and he said 'no i dont think you have it' i had to urge for some tests to be done- sure enough i did have it

4. did two home pregnancy tests and went to the drs and said im pregnant 'no you cant be you have pcos and those home pregnancy tests are shonky' - i was pregnant


hey deb even if they said your sister did have MS i wouldve got another opinion!

Yeah you just can't trust some doctors... my mum went to the doc's repeatedly with horiffic migraines, so bad that she couldn't do a thing, even sleep, he told her to get over it and to take a couple of panadol.. she turned out to have a brain tumour!! She was going to sue him but didn't want to bring the other practice's doctor down with him because she'd been our family doctor for years..
