OK, I found out i will be having an MRI, chest x-ray, EKG and echocardiogram, lots 0 labs, lots of baselines with a hemotologist, neuropsych studies, and establishment of EDSS score..
I keep in touch with all of my Docs by fax. I have found that messages left with office staff tend to get garbled. (anyone else?)
I faxed Dr. Balabanov's office and HE called me back later that day. It was a question e could easily have had one of his minions call me back with an answer. I was delighted that he took the time to touch base with me. I also got a call from the program coordinator just to let me know that I am still on target for inclusion, but that I would hear nothing until after the holiday season. I thought that was a nice touch too...
Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle..
