View Full Version : Abbey's MRI today

6th February 2009, 03:08 AM
Was positive. She does have sm. Going back in the a.m. to have consultation with neurologist. Its a 3 hr drive--I just got home and have been gone for 15 hrs. Very long day and I'm drained and eyes sore from crying. Will post later when I have more strength and more knowledge from neurologist. Lucky they gave us the news to at least give us comfort. They are keeping Abbbey overnight.

Oh Linda, I am so sorry! :( At least you now know what you feared and suspected all along, and with this diagnosis, you can get little Abbey the proper care and pain relief. There are so many members of this board with SM dogs that are being pain medication managed and doing well. There is so much information and support here.

We have also had MRI for suspected SM and at that time (7 mos) she was negative (no syrinxes) but positive for PSOM. Even that was an agonizing time so I know a bit of what you have been going through, and there is no guarantee that she won't get it later in life.

Know that you will continue to be in our hearts and prayers as you get through this. :hug:

Love my Cavaliers

Dear Linda, I'm so very sorry. It's a big blow even when you expect that result. You did the right thing for her and now you can expect some improvement with the pain medication.

There are quite a few on CT who have experience with SM so rest assured we are all here willing to help. :hug:
