rod123 Posted August 15, 2009 Share Posted August 15, 2009 (edited) Hi on 3 august merrill saw the consulant again she had coiling, clipping and a shunt fitted for hydracephalus, the letter he wrote to our gp said that merrill continues to have memory problem and can be very wobbly at times she had a ngegative rombergs test and that he thought that returning to work on a very part time basis under heavy supervision might be therapeutic to her infact the meeting we had with him and the letter he wrote in no way bore no resemblance, Merrill is having ot at the moment and awaiting physio, speach and language therapy(although i dont see aproblem with her speech) and we were told that she would see a nuerophyscologist, they said this would be a long job and the doctors words there were this could take 2 years i don,t promise to make you better but i do promise to teach you to live with it, who do you listen to. and at the moment we are waiting to hear about her DLA who would they listen to if we had to appeal I hear so much about shunt malfunction this tends to be my biggest worry am i being over anxious. I think when these consulants put these sort of things in letters they over step the mark a bit surely it's the job of the rehab centre to say when some one is ready for work Thanks for listening Rod (got that off my chest then ) Edited August 15, 2009 by Janet Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
