Anyone else feel like once they get a major condition, it just goes downhill?

karri I saw that you have posted about your visit and appreciate it. i too fell the “this is my story” of constant medical care. I want to know it Mayo does your required tests on the first visit so i can anticipate how long to stay. can u tell me how they did that for you, i am coming in from Mich and staying i a hotel.

Elizabeth….I don’t know the extent of your visit, but I was there for thyroid surgery. I had all of my tests done the day of my arrival, I had my surgery the following day, and I was on the way home on my third day. I also came from the UP of Michigan, and I can tell you that they are very considerate at Mayo concerning your distance that you travel, and of course the availability of your needed surgeon. I was very lucky in my case, and have the utmost respect for everyone there who treated me. I had made arrangements to be there a week if necessary rather than travel back and forth. Good luck to you, and I am sure you will be totally pleased that you chose the Mayo clinic for your problem.

Thank u so very much. That really helps me to clarify. Is there any way u
have info on the driving trip ( well u might have flown). I am driving and
have a hotel planned for a week so that I can have testing or anything.
If u did drive in r there and places to avoid like highways to avoid big
cities? The best way to drive there? A lot to.ask I know. I just have no
help.and and starting to get in freak out mode.
Thanks again

Oh, I am.driving in from Jackson, Mi. Lower part of the state.

HI..WE USED GPS IN OUR CAR WHICH TOOK US DIRECTLY TO OUR MOTEL…WE STAYED AT THE KAHLER WHICH IS CONNECTED DIRECTLY TO THE CLINIC….YOU DON’T EVEN HAVE TO GO OUTSIDE TO GET TO YOUR APPTS. THEY WERE WONDERFUL THERE AND IT IS SO CONVENIENT. IF YOU DON’T HAPPEN TO HAVE ONE IN YOUR CAR, IT WOULD BE A GOOD IDEA FOR YOU TO USE SOMEONE’S TO DIRECT YOU…THE PARKING GARAGE IS RIGHT UNDERNEATH THE MOTEL AND IT COULDN’T BE SIMPLER…WISHING YOU THE BEST OF LUCK……..ALLEGRO

FORGOT TO ASK YOU…WHERE IN MICHIGAN ARE YOU DRIVING FROM?

I imagine that you will be going by way of Chicago and then on to Wisc. etc…the best thing you can possibly do is to get hold of a GPS for your car…It will take you right to the door of your motel….
