Hi Bill, Donna here in Australia, thank you for posting about Rob's strange occurance with Clippers and thank you Will for your kind words and wisdom. An update from our Neurologist has advised that the tumour is granular in type so wonder if this is granulomotosis with Clippers, after many days of testing they have definitely confirmed the Clippers diagnosis with an attached aneurism which they diffused with a needle to take off the pressure. Unfortunately even after an 8inch wound and 37 staples and huge doses of steroids, my husband still has incredible headaches, wobbly gait, hand tremors, muscle weakness, eye problems and facial parasthesis, he is continuing on 10mg Prednisone, 10mg of Imuran(Azathioprine), Tramil, endep, Panadol and various other pain killers but nothing seems to work.
At this stage we have another MRI in July late, with a specialist appointment in early august, they have advised that they may go in again, though to what end we are not sure as there is nothing they can do to fix it because it is in the area of motor skills, breathing, sight, hearing etc. We also don't believe because of his current level of pain that the tumour has not shrunk very much since the biopsy.
Will keep you informed of any further developments
