A new year

Postby Ivysmom » Sat Jan 10, 2009 10:11 pm

I want to add my success story to give hope to others in the same boat. Dr. Oro performed tethered cord surgery in July which helped
with some of the symptoms - especially bladder issues. On Dec.11th I had a PFD done in Colorado. It's been a month post-op and I can't believe
how much better everything is. My head doesn't feel full of pressure and clear thinking is a daily occurance. Several of the doctors that were
seen before Dr. Oro told me I had MS, just getting older (50?)... now 52 , lots of other lame diagnosis, and the worst one was endometriosis!!!!???? Never give up and try to see a real specialist in the beginning

Kathy, thank you for sharing with us! Welcome to the "clear thinking"!!! I loved the brain fog clearing! It is wonderful to have our brains back.

Now take it easy for awhile. Let your body heal!
