Great information! Thanks so, so much! So glad I found Mayo Clinic connect! Everyone has been wonderful.

Thank you so much! I want to get her to Mayo. Thanks for mentioning about the airline number. She doesn’t want to be on pain pills but this is all they give her. I’m sorry about your friend getting hooked on pain pills. I just don’t understand why these places only push pills when there are alternatives!

Thanks again for your help!

Great information. Which Mayo clinic did you go to? Insurance is a problem. They do not have the finances to afford much. I’ve offered to pay towards her coverage. She’s extremely discouraged as every doctor she has seen always says they can’t do anything for her. They just give her pain pills. Her husband is over all of it. He has suggested divorce and told her she could go on Medicaid. It’s very sad but I’m not giving up on helping her.

Thank you!

Thanks so much for your support. It means a lot. My sister’s doctors hate when you make treatment suggestions or if she brings someone to her appointment. They actually get mad. I say too bad. That’s why we’re considering Mayo. Thanks again.

I will try to get my sister to the Jacksonville Mayo clinic. She’s not in a financial position to private pay and I can only provide a little financial help. She has an HMO which is being cancelled as of January 1 and they may not be able to afford new health insurance. Her husband is no help at all. He even suggested divorce as he’s over helping her. It’s just a bad situation all around so I’m trying to do what I can to help.

Thankyou for this information. I so wish my sister had her meningioma removed by a specialist in meningiomas. She suffers everyday in pain. She has a 2nd meningioma that’s on wait and watch. I don’t trust her doctors. No one has given her relief.

Thankyou so much! I will try to convince her that Mayo can help. She never wants to leave her house because she feels so ill. I will work on her and thanks for your kind words. So sorry your wife suffered but she had you to help her and that means a lot.
