Passed the paper along

Post by whyRwehere » Wed Sep 02, 2009 1:29 pm

My husband's GP requested that he see a neuro, as he hasn't seen one since last year this time. That was his old neuro, and I'm afraid we had come to the end of our relationship. Today we saw the new one and she seemed quite nice, although she admitted she wasn't an MS specialist. Well, who really is? Perhaps it is better she isn't, or at least doesn't think she is. So we gave her Zamboni's paper and really hope she finds time to read it.
She requested my husband get a new MRI, the first since 2003ish. I wonder if any signs can be seen in the pictures, that would relate to the doppler exam my husband got last Spring. I'm sure it says somewhere in here, but I'm looking for the quick and easy answer.

are you asking can a regular brain MRI for MS show anything about the veins? if so the answer is no...... if they did tell us much about the veins then we'd HOPE they'd have seen this stuff some years ago!!!
I'm not offering medical advice, I am just a patient too! Talk to your doctor about what is best for you...

well, what I meant was, the lesions it picks up, would you expect them to be close to the venous issues, which I now know he has according to the doppler...if you get what I mean.
