6 Month Check-up

In February 2008 it had been 6 months since my previous appointment and it was time for my next check-up with the endocrinologist.  I  had a blood test a week before to check how my hormone levels are functioning. I sat in the waiting room nervously waiting to be called in and fingers crossed everything is all good. I was called in and to be relieved when the endocrinologist said that the Blood test results were really good. My hormone levels still functioning normally with the main hormone Prolactin with a reading of 210 mIU/L (within the regular range of 0-500). My menstrual cycle is also regulating which means the Pituitary is functioning properly again. The endocrinologist wants to see me again in 6 months unless I have any other concerns. I have a referral for another blood test and will be seeing the endocrinologist in 6 months time to see how my hormones are going.

New Physiotherapist

After 2 months of getting familiar with a new area, shops etc. I found a Physiotherapist in Pakenham, at Pakenham Physiotherapy within 5 minutes walking distants of my house which was quite handy. I had my first consultation a few days before my 26th birthday. I wanted to hopefully make some improvement with a new physiotherapist. I explained to the physiotherapist my history with Transsphenoidal Surgery and the nerve issues and Thoracic Outlet Syndrome. Also I spent 3 months before Christmas seeing another Physiotherapist and not making much progress. I needed a different approach to treatment so as I could regain use of my Left Hand and be able to do my artwork and have the possibility to gain employment with out this restricting my employment prospects. The physiotherapist examined my neck, shoulder, left arm and back and also explained that this may be a long process but he will certainly do his best to help with this issue.
