Schedule of Post HiCy Follow Up Appointments...

Post by steven73 » Thu Aug 20, 2009 2:55 am

I just completed my first year of every three month appointments. Are we supposed to follow up every three months for the second year as well?

Thanks,
Steve

Thanks for the info Chris. I really appreciate it. Sorry for the delayed response.

Wow! Are you really making the trek from Alabama to Baltimore every three months?

My Neuro here in Alabama orders all my tests and he does my labs, EDSS and MSFC at his office then they fax all the results to Dr. Kerr's office. My Neuro keeps a seperate J.H. file for me. I just sent Dr. Hammond all my MRI images for this past year for them to evaluate. The last time I went to J.H. was for the HiCy treatment. I'm still paying the condo off that I leased. Hopefully I will get back up there soon.
