mayo clinic#1
Posted: 8/22/07 at 11:17pm
so i went to the doctor today and she told me i have to go to the mayo clinic.
she wants me to go for like a week (or as long as they need me there... could only be a few days) for all kinds of tests.
basically, they think all the things i have are all connected in one systemic disorder.
i have to have genetic testing and biopsies and all kids of fun (not) stuff.

i'm not sure when i am going or where (there are three mayo clnics... one in florida one in minisota and one in arizona)
but we set up a page last week beacuse we knew we wuold have to go out of state sometime soon.

if anyone is interested or wants to stay updated they can go to carepages.com, click on "visit a carepage" and register (it takes 30 seconds) and where you see "enter carepage name" type in laurenm04

i'm posting this on the message boards/networking websites i go to incase i can not access them while i'm away, but i know for a fact that i will be able to access carepages from the mayo clinic.

we are calling my primary care doctor tomarrow to see what we should do, which one to go to, when we will go, etc. it could be soon or it may not be for a month or two.
i just hope i can start school before i go so that i dont have to start late or not at all this semester.

I have some familiarity w the Minnesota branch. Excellent facility tho I think the outpt is better than inpt services.
Whatever- I wish you all the best of luck,talented doctors and nurses,and the love and support of friends & family. G*d bless.

thanks. it would actually probably be outpatient with a whole bunch of appointments over a few days - a week. i'm not sure if they actually keep you inpatient for the time you're there when its just for testing.

my mom hopes they have us go to florida lol

thanks. we've been saying for years "this has to be all connected somehow" and finally a doctor said "hey, you're right!"

edit: brd, i have several diagnosis that are almost textbook, but not quite, and they think they are all connected. i will pm you with more information.
