Hello, My name is Barbara Craig. I'm a nursing student in the state of California. I recently received an assignment that I must research. My topic is Paget's disease of the bone. I can gather much of my research on the internet, but I would much rather get the perspective from someone then the computer. If you are willing to answer a few questions for me, I would be able to get your story out to 33 other nursing students. Thank you in advance for reading my post and responding.
How has this disease affected you personally and socially?
Has this disease changed any of your morals?
Have you seen a change is your personality after being diagnosed with Paget's?
Have you noticed a change in your ability to remember things, judgment, perception and reasoning?
What symptoms did you encounter that lead you to seek medical advise?
Did your physician say this disease was some way connected to the environment and/or was it due to heredity?
Were you advised of any potential problems because of this disease?
Is there anything else you would like to share regarding your experiences?
I know that some of these questions are personal, but whatever you feel comfortable answering, I would be grateful. This will give you the opportunity to share your story with future nurses. Thanks again!!!
