Well the last couple of months have been interesting, to say the least.
To suggest I got anything other than my 'old' life back completely wouldn't be true. Yet this outcome has significant challenges.
For example, I have been wanting to get my pilots license. That dream got shelved a decade ago with a number of other dreams that simply wouldn't be physically possible. Progressive forms of MS are recognized by Transport Canada and rule me 'unfit to fly'.
Now I am left with zero symptoms of the disease I have been diagnosed with yet at the same time, the 'medical baggage' still languishes under the heat-lamp of life for all to see.
What does one do now that they no longer have ANY of those symptoms, yet the very procedure that has fixed them is not recognized in Canada?
Am I cured? Certainly the symptoms have dissappeared very quickly after the procedure. How will this status be evaluated by both my Neuro and the medical community?(I can't WAIT to see the look on his face next visit actually...I slinked off to the U.S. unbeknownst to him and his ilk.)
What options do Neuros have with people like me? The way I see it he will either have to admit the condition exists, and correcting it has fixed the issues. Secondarily he can say he made a mistake(Fat fucking chance
) and the diagnosis should have been RRMS and I am now in remission.
I would be interested in hearing others thoughts on this matter.
