Hello Vivian, thank you for your encouraging words, I find myself in a situation causing me a lot of grief,in short I am afraid, afraid to have the OP
and afraid not to have the OP . I have researched the Duodopa system in depth and
wish I could feel confident in its success its 51% for 49% against at the moment.
Then what about all the people who pushed so hard in order to procure the Duodopa for me,even thinking about rejecting it makes me feel guilty ,I know how
much effort all the fantastic members of the PD team at NTGH have invested , it makes me feel special and ungrateful at the same time , I don't want to let all
these people down, then there are the ifs or buts ,if its yes I could be in for a
world of hurt,or then again it may improve my quality of life 100%,I will of course have to undergo tests before the go ahead is granted so all this tortuous
indecision and guilt may be taken out of my hands,my family are all very supportive and want me to go for it,in fact as I write these words,my children
and Grandchildren and five of my closest friends have had a show of hands,they
all voted yes, unanimous in their belief that I should, if the tests are ok
go for it, and I suppose I have nothing to lose, if I cannot tolerate the system
its simple procedure to remove it, so " DECISION MADE" fed is accepting the
Duodopa option, live on my LOPTIP as I write these words, JOB DONE thankyou everyone "they are all clapping and cheering" Good Eh.
May I wish you Vivian and all who are part of this Forum HappynewYear
