bless you miaou, you are so sweet doing this thread for me

i had the ultrasound and tbh i dont really know whats gonna happen, i will prob have to see the vascular surgeon next week to find out the results of the report. the radiologist said the blood was gushing through the artery which is a sure fire sign (they measure velocity (sp?)) but he couldnt see a narrowing, but they have to report on it before i find out exactly what the results and outcome will be, having said that the first ultrasound i had it was a different radiologist and he said "it was normal" so i am not getting excited yet lol.

my mum came to the scan and got all excited when he said he couldnt see a narrowing, but i am not gonna get my hopes up yet, obviously it was there a few weeks ago and i have been told its not something that will get better, just worse.

thankyou all so much for your kind messages, and miaou - xxxxx

also, i was on the verge of a emotional breakdown on mon morn as dd 17mth (after 7-8 wks of walking fine) wouldnt weight bear on her heel again was just crying when trying to walk, but luckily has been walking since but with a limp....sigh....there is obviously still a weakness there, so had to ring the consultants secretary to give them a kick up the backside for the report on the MRI scan.

lilsmum, oh poor you over dd again - I hope it's nothing serious and you get that followed up ok.

I think you are very sensible not to get overexcited re the radiologists' findings, but it's perhaps a good sign that things may not be as serious atm as they could be?

I do feel for you, I'm sure the waiting and the not knowing is almost worse than having a diagnosis at this point... Glad your mum and dh are around to offer you support though.

Keep us up to date with what's happening to you - if nothing else writing it all down will help you to clarify how you feel about the whole situation. Plus it can act as a kind of "diary" of your progress (medical and emotional) which will be good to look back on as time goes on.

Hugs to you
