So its been a while since ive been on. I was scedualed for the consult for the shunt last month, went to that, and the guy was like, "well, thats a last resort at this point, you just need to loose more weight." So, happy, that i had a prospect of no brain surgury, i went with that, also weary that my original doctor was so adiment about me getting the surgery. I scheduled an appt with him, and he was outraged to learn that the guy didnt want to do it. He checked my paps, and they are back up. (i gained 5 pounds) and he said for me to loose all the weight needed to make this better, it would take at least a year, and by then i would be completely blind. Soooo. (now that i have medicaid) He sent me to another neuro, this one is way closer. Lets hope things go well.
