Acceptance of PD diagnosis...a new path

Recommended Posts

Thank you so much for your reply and I will speak to the new Dr. as soon as I see him. Forgot to say I am 62 yrs. old now and my younger brother, an uncle and my mother also had PD. My mother passed away 10 yrs. ago of Pancreatic cancer but was diagnosed with PD 2 yrs. before. Her brother had it for about 15 yrs. before he passed and my brother has had it for 10 yrs. he is now 60 yrs. old. His health is alright except for the tremors and stuttering, he does complain of pain in certain areas.           Thank you again for replying so soon Rogerstar1       :::::::::::::::::::: Mary

Mary- Welcome. You might want to get involved in one of the studies that looks at PD in families- there are a few other folk son the forum like you who have multiple relatives w/PD- you re of great interest to researchers. Take at look at the Fox Trial Finers at MJFF.
