Officially throwing in the towel today, no more hoops for me. The wife and I were in the car, on our way, heading towards the tunnel when I said enough is enough! We were heading down to U of MD hospital to see Dr. Walter Royal, the head of the ms clinic. Royal actually gave me my diagnoses back in '87 when he was at Hopkins hospital. Dr Jerold Fleishman is my neuro of choice, has been for over 20 years, but he has me go to see an expert to make sure we are on the right track. The track has officially run out.
Done did all the injections, all the infusions, chemotherapy, the pill, everything but tysabri. Royal confirmed last visit I had in fact changed to SPMS, nothing else for him to check on. With an internet connection or a library card I can go on the website and see if there is anything new, no need to have the wife miss half a day of work going in town at lunch time to hear him say it. No more appearance sake doctor visits, time to embrace the horror, this isn't getting better, get over it! That was cleansing, how is everyone else?
