Good news for me!
It's a happy day, after all.
Regarding Dr. Mehta's list -- After my husband's insistence earlier today that I was still on Dr. Mehta's list, I called and spoke to a gentleman filling in for Megan. He was kind enough to look for my name, and there it was! On the list!!
My husband tried filling in all the blanks in my memory, but I think those particular memories have disappeared forever. He tells me that I did, indeed, call Dr. Mehta's office to remove myself from the list, but that the woman I had been speaking to checked with Dr. Mehta while I waited on the phone -- she came back to say that Dr. Mehta is interested in my case, wants my data, and wants me to stay on the list. And I have no memory of any of it <sigh>, <tears>.
I couldn't figure out why in the world he would want my data, especially when it might be thrown out by the peer reviewers. But I found out from a friend that he might be interested in writing up a single case study of just me -- I've read such case studies before ("We report a case of a woman who .........") so maybe there's some truth to it. I can't wait to ask him myself, especially because he works in my city which would be so convenient for me.
Thank you again, belsadie, Nunzio and Cece -- you guys are the best! I hope that if any of you ever need help, that I'll be the one who can come to your rescue (thinking of Nunzio's spinning Superman avatar).
Before I forget again... the IR I mentioned in my previous post is on a radiology forum called AuntMinnie.com A long time ago, I posted on the general radiology forum asking if any of the IRs or residents ever heard of CCSVI -- only one member said he had but that his neurologist friend said there was nothing to it. A more open-minded IR and I had talked by PM several times back when I first posted about CCSVI.
Well, on Tuesday, this IR opened my last PM of our recent conversation, but he never responded back.
I think something happened to his open-mindedness or maybe he took a bit of offense at my comment that CCSVI is still
not discussed at AuntMinnie's -- if anyone searches at AuntMinnie's for CCSVI, the only
posts that come up are my old ones.
I do NOT want anyone thinking I was talking about our great doctor here at TIMS, Dr. Sclafani.
Wishing everyone a happy holiday weekend (here in the U.S.)
