Just a quick update to let you all know that due to a hormone level increase in one area and some bizarre symptoms, the doctors had been worried about a pituitary adenoma in the brain. An MRI, paid for by the fund has been completed to rule out the possible Pituitary adenoma, and I am delighted to say, other than obvious signs of a history of bad ear trouble in my mastoid bones, it came out all clear. Thank you once again for your support, this test goes towards one of the tests I needed to have completed for my first trip to London in August 🙂
The first appointment with Prof. Rodney Graham at the Hypermobility unit in The Hospital of St. John and St. Elizabeth has been booked for the 26th of August and flights and accommodation have been purchased, again with thanks and help from the Go Fund Me fund, so I am all ready for the first trip over and I am looking forward to it now. I hope he can shed some light on things and my health can start to improve if at all possible.
Another treatment I have had in the mean time, this one just through the medical card, was steroid injections into my sacroiliac joint and right hip in Croom Hospital under Prof. Harmon. They hurt, I wont lie, but I have to say, after a few days of initial soreness from the injection sights, I have found an improvement in the pain. I hope with a continuation of these pain killing injections and the trip to London it may start me in the right direction to get my ass out of this wheelchair, but I won’t jump the gun just yet. The best things happen slow and steady.
All I can do for now is continue to hope and do my daily physio! 🙂
Thank you once again to everyone who has contributed and helped with the Go Fund Me campaign, I am overwhelmed with the level of support I have received so far. I cant thank you all enough.
