My name is Simon Read
I was diagnosed in 2012
Over the years since being diagnosed I have been supported by the drugs extremely swell, but have reached the optimum safe dose and am now looking towards DBS or Apomorphine Pump
I recently underwent testing to see if I would be eligible for an Apomorphine gel pump.
It is not easy to make a decision whether to go ahead or not and thats where i need your help.
Is there anyone out there currently using this pump, that would be kind enough to meet me and share their experiences?
Your help would be so valuable at this time

Sirens. I am in your predicament too. I would love to speak to someone who has an apo pump rigged up. I spend 3 hrs frozen each day …triggered just by stress
