I had my first MRIs this Saturday and was scheduled to see my neurologist to review the results in just over a week from today. Instead, I got a call early this morning to come and see the doctor immediately. I was shaken by this and feared they had found something dire that needed an urgent response.
The good news is that the did not discover some unexpected and immediately life threatening condition.
The bad news is that they did find multiple lesions in my brain and spine.
My neuro has now referred me to a MS specialty clinic. I have an appointment in two weeks time where I guess we’ll start the process of determining the disease type and what treatment options are available to me.
I’ll admit that I’m feeling rather isolated and scared. Any words of encouragement or advice for the newly diagnosed would be much appreciated 🙂
