Finally have appointment
I am scheduled in mid-October for my appointment at the MS Center at OHSU in Portland. Oh, me of little faith!
It's on the 21st of October. We'll have to spend the night before in Portland, since it's an early appointment.
That’s just around the corner...
That's not too far away like erash said! Keep us updated! So happy for you!
Sounds great 👍 Good Luck and hope everything works out 🙏😉 Ken 🐾🐾
When we would like everything to be done yesterday, everything goes on 'molasses' time! Your appointment will be here before you know it! Be (the) patient.
I was tested for patience, but came up negative. Ha! Actually, I'm usually pretty patient. It's just that so many things slip through the cracks at all of my doctors' offices, so I usually have to make a few calls to keep things rolling. I had begun to wonder if I would have to make a 3th call, after finding out they had forgotten, necessitating the first two calls. It happens.
It's frustrating to find the line between being persistent or a pest! Lately, I have found that being a persistent pest is the way to go
Ooo!! I must remember that one "be a persistent pest." That's a good one!😎😎
That's great news! Let us know how it goes.
That’s your birthday. What a birthday present. Enjoy the over night stay, and do something special apart from ms doctor visits, Blessings Jimeka 🤗
I'm happy for you! I hope all goes well
That's great news greaterexp !! Now is this the 'O' or the other? I forget sry.😔🤗💕🤗🌠
I'm not sure what this new neurologist will recommend. My regular neurologist was having second thoughts about whether Ocrevus was the best choice for me, so she recommended I get another opinion from OHSU, especially since she doesn't have many MS patients.
October 21 will be here in the blink of an eye! And it’s always good to get a second opinion on medications. Good luck! 😀❤️
Congratulations Erin. Our God is awesome.
Congrats! Let us know how it goes. Have some fun on your birthday too!
Thank you. I consider it a birthday gift!
Good luck honey xxxxx
That's great! "Good things come to those who wait."
...and wait and wait sometimes!
Keep the faith! ❤️ And keep us posted. Glad you were able to schedule the appointment. 😀
Wonderful! I am so envious! OHSU is such a great place (grew up in Portland) and they are doing an MS drug study that I had emailed my Neurologist about and he said "let me know if the mice survive" - if it comes up, might you ask?
Happy early Birthday!
Thank you so much. I will try to remember to ask about studies. Do you remember the specifics? It seems as though no one wants to do studies on old people, as in 60 or older. This guy should know all about any that I might fit.
I unfortunately don't remember the specific study but they were starting Phase 2 of the study, I'll try to find the email that I sent my neuro.
Isn't it odd to get (and be excited about) getting a doctors visit for your birthday! I will be on vacation then (I get a vacation!!!) but will be sending strong thoughts and prayers to you!
There are some great doctors up there. Dr Frederick I saw her during her internship. Unfortunately I had the WORST doc there. She is no longer practicing. But I do know there great ones there. I now have a local neurologist who is verdict still out on. I might go back up there. Good luck with your visit up there. Where you from greaterexp? I live in Salem area. Dpjinx
Southern Oregon, near Medford.
Praise God. Keep us posted
Thank you! Will do.
Congrats! OHSU has such a great reputation!
It took forever but I finally got an appointment for my first Ocrevus infusion! Sept. 10 at 9:30 am
to hear from OHSU in Portland about an appointment. Do you have an upcoming appointment?
