Visit To Duke

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I just wanted to report on our visit today to Duke. The doctor was fantastic. He spend 2 hours talking to us and examining her. We got great news. He believes that my fiance may just have a very bad case of Reynoud's. She does have a high ANA and swollen fingers, but the doctor did not think there was reason to be overly concerned. We are seeking medical advice very early in her symptoms, but it was a very positive visit. There is no gaurantee that it is not Scleroderma or another autoimmune disease so we will visit every three months, but I couldn't have asked for a better outcome.

I must say that I have never dealt with a more compassionate, knowlegable doctor.

 

Thank you for all the support I have received here. i will keep you posted.

Hi Paul, I'm a bit behind here, but sure appreciate your letting us know how your fiancee's appointment at Duke went and that the doctor was able to set you both at ease... he sounds awesome! Also glad that the raynauds was diagnosed and that she'l be seeing the doctor on regular intervals... that's got to be a comfort.

Take care of yourselves and please stay in touch!

Susie
