hi - my dad (79yrs) attended geriatric clinic with symptoms of falls backwards, fuzzy head feeling and difficulty finding the right words. I have found out his scan has come back with typical hummingbird sign on MRI and the geriatrician is presuming PSP. He has been referred to neurologist to confirm - appointment is on Nov 1st (4 months away). We are due to attend geriatrician next week to get test results - I imagine they will detail the findings but say they need neurologist to confirm. I am just wondering should we go forward with geriatrician appointment and get three-quarters of a diagnosis which I know will cause my mum 4 months of sleepness nights and Dad to withdraw from activities such as pitch and put. They have their 50th wedding anniversary at the end of August - and are looking forward to it, with a few days away after. I don't know are they better off not knowing until someone can 100% confirm it and enjoy this event without this shadow over them, and then deal with things. On the other hand who am I to try control what will be and I will have to live with me knowing and them not for 4 months, and am I trying to drag out the denial a bit longer. I'm their only child so having this battle going on in my head at the moment. Any experience or advice would be great. Dad is currently walking independently, doing light gardening and has actually just retired. It's so heartbreaking - Mum is 77 and just don't know how she'll cope.
