Chris, my neuro's behaviour would be absolutely hilarious except that he works on one side of a courtyard, David works on the other. In these last three years he must have diagnosed countless people with either SPMS or PPMS, but he has suggested to none of them that they might care to see David. They are just told that nothing can be done and they should just allow the disease to progress. He doesn't have to believe in anything, he doesn't have to say any more than that there is a doctor just over the way who might be able to offer you some help, but no, nothing. He wouldn't even look at my new scans because the chief radiologist ordered them, not him. That to my mind is wicked.
On a brighter note, he complained to the Medical Director, but the Medical Director is totally behind David. Increasingly more local GPs are also referring people, but more to the point these people, who had previously just been thrown on the scrapheap, are improving.
An Itinerary in Light and Shadow Completed Dr Charles Stratton / Dr David Wheldon abx regime for aggressive secondary progressive MS in June 2007, after four years. Still improving with no relapses since starting. Can't run but can paint all day.
