Congratulations. Great news Stacey! - especially about your kids. I'm a dad, as you know, and the kids are always the primary concern. God bless you too Stacey.

Hi Stacy,

Glad you are well. Hope the seizures have the sense not to bother you again when their meds go!

Daniel is well in fact he has turned into a dare-devil. Just back from the Gold Coast theme parks and he loves the scary rides! He had the best time ever.

Our yard currently resembles a jungle after time away and the spring weather so I am off to mow too.

Best wishes and thinking of you.


Sandra.

Hi All,
Just back from seeing my neurologist in Sydney & he seems more comfortable that i stay on my anti sezuire meds ( bummer ) I was hoping to loose a handfull of pills per day but he obviously knows best. Im having a nice big needle shoved in the back of my neck tommorow ( nerve block ) OUCH! to try to relieve daily migrane, I hope it works.

Just to let you all know, I had 4 needles last Tuesday in the back of my neck to relieve the migrane that has plagued me for 2 yrs, The nerve block treatment is working well, and Ive had no pain medication for 6 days , not even panadol, Im full of energy and sleeping well, bloody miracle!!!!!

Now that's what I call a good Xmas - pain free and with less medication :).

Keep up the good work - good on you for trying drug free alternatives first. Too often our doctors reach straight for the medication first.

Off the seizure meds is great and having heaps more energy is even better. My theory is that it helps to move us further to the right of the median curve.

I'll have to ask my neurosurgeon about this next visit, probably the risks outweight the annoyance. My plate felt loose for about 9 months afterwards.

Congratulations on being a grandparent!

Off to Sydney next week for my 6 month CT & MRI, been off sezuire meds now 5 months, not even a tickle.....still officially have a screw loose,( always a good talking point) will see Neuro on 20th June to review scans and work out whether to repair plate, or just leave alone, would prefer to leave it but it does cause some discomfort, migranes are still a problem, going round in a big circle with pain meds, but what the heck IM alive and thats all that matters....became a grandma 9th Feb..lost my mum 9th march .........was refused to be taken to hospital by ambulance as emergency was tooooooooo busy, had a massive heart attack 1 hour later.
Thanks to the cancer council for flying my husband and I to this yrs BT Seminar at the menzies hotel Sydney & giving us such a beaut king size room! Great to see so many farmiliar faces , so many newly diagnosed patients there, very upsetting as well.
