YEA! Celebrate! It's so nice to get a Precise Diagnosis.
Sunday, October 14, 2018
I have a skin rash, and when I saw the dermatologist on Friday, she gave me a diagnosis rather quickly, and a treatment for it. I'll be picking up a medication to treat it on Monday. Then, they expect it to be much better within 3 or 4 weeks. I walked out of her office greatly relieved because it means help is on the way.
This compares to a problem I have had for years (not skin), that doctors and scientists tried diagnosing for years, with very expensive (for my insurance) tests that were performed. Ultimately, there was no diagnosis and only vague ideas of how to help the condition. It would be so nice to have it pinned down, but some of the best medical minds in Seattle weren't able to do that.
Much thanks to you, Suzanne! Glenn
