GoFundMe Update
Posted: 19th Jan 

Happy New Year everyone! I am sorry that I haven’t updated in a while but I was pretty unwell over the holidays then life, the universe and everything got in the way since!

I have updated the blog with the most up to date hospital admissions, appointments and NEW NEWS about finally getting an appointment for the Harold’s Cross inpatient rehabilitative treatment, That had been recommended as part of one of my next medical treatment steps, by Prof. Grahame while I was over in London!

Read the blog update on: www.irishdysautonomia.wordpress.com

Harold’s cross starts on the 8th Feb. I will initially be admitted for a week where I will undergo an intensive daily schedule of Physio, Hydro and occupational Therapies along with pain and medication management to help me live and cope easier at home with these medical conditions that I have as well as making me more mobile and hopefully gets me out of the wheelchair for good!
I can go home Sat. And Sun. for a rest before being brought back up for another week if it is deemed necessary to continue. This treatment may continue for a number of weeks or months.

Once Harold’s cross is done for a few weeks, I hope to be well and strong enough to travel back to The Hypermobility Unit in London again for further diagnostic tests and to meet with specialist consultants who specialise in EDS, of which, there are none, in Ireland.

This time it has been recommended to me by my doctors here that I go meet with a Nurogasteroenterologist named Prof. Aziz who will be able to treat me in relation to my Gastroparises , Gallbladder and Slow Gut Motility problems, as the surgeon here has tried everything he knows but is lacking knowledge in relation to EDS in order to help me further.

My Pain Specialist Here has suggested I may need an ‘Upright MRI’ also to confirm or deny possible neck and head instability problems , as well as, possible Chiari Malformation.

It is more than likely a long shot but with the severe pain, migraines, Seizures, pins and needles , weakness and many other symptoms I present with, it is considered possible enough for me to get it checked as soon as I am able.

Again I would like to stress that, without this fund and all your help, my medical treatment and diagnostic tests would never happen as there is no specialist consultant or medical centre available anywhere in Ireland for EDS. People like myself, our only option is to travel. And the cost of everything medical abroad is impossibly and prohibitively expensive.

I want to take this opportunity once again to thank everyone who has helped out in this fund so far by Donating money or Donating your time in organising Fundraising events. I can’t thank you enough from the bottom of my heart.

Let’s hope 2016 brings good health to all of us 🙂

THANK YOU!
