she had a bleed on brain - saying that what we were told was "that it looked pretty serious", hence why they told us it was a tumor first . at present she has full memory , full speech and is completly mobile. Occassional she wets herself as she dosen't reach bathroom in time. From her first stay trip to A & E she was confussed and had high BP. she is now taking BP tablets and Cholestral tablets that is it.
She was on 20mg of steroids and is off them from last Thursday, she is a bit withdrawn the last few days and doesn't want to get out of bed or has no interest in anything. this is just not my mother
The diagnosis was made originally after a MRI scan was sent to Beaumont which would be the specialist Nurology hospital in Ireland. We were then put under the care of a Dr Hennessy who is Nuro guy in region, he told us two weeks ago that it wasn't amylopodis and tehn on wednesday told my mam is was amylois angephaty( same thing right). the tests they were doing- were mri and blood tests
would you suggest a second opinion?
a biopsy is a bit too risky in my opinion but i feel that we are left in limbo with this diagnosis, in terms of what to expect and look out for etc
