    Mario, I pray that the diagnosis is of great benefit to you. Hopefully they can tailor specific treatment for you to give you a greatly improved life style. I have followed your postings about your health and quite frankly I haven't known what to say as it was all sounding very negative. I will pray that the treatment is effective and that it gives you more time than what you would have had without the treatment. Hopefully you will still have many years of good living (and good fishing). I would be happy to bring my little tinny down and take you out when you are up to it. Let me know!

    Prayers and good wishes,
    Tom.

    side thought....

    it might be worth consulting a physio or similar to see if you might be able to take advantage of some tens style electrically simulated exercise for your muscles, it might be enough to help keep the weight gain down if your meds and pain tolerance will allow it.

    Oh, and while I cant fish worth a damn, I can carry stuff, push a wheel chair and bait hooks. Let me know when you want to do a fishing day and I'll make it available.

    My BP is fine whilst I sit or lay down, but movement is the problem, its orthostatic hypertension that's the problem. If I get up and dont pump my legs a bit before to pump blood back to the head then the blood leaves the brain, causing my muscles to collapse and hence the falls , so meds to raise BP will increase the BP whilst resting , so they need to tweak it after some tests are done.

    Tom, your a saint.
    Fishing for me is a down the track at the moment, It takes some times two people to get me out of a car or up off a chair, when my muscles go weak I dont have the strength to lift my leg or to drag myself with my arms, my legs sometimes stop working so I would only be a beached whale. I ring and annoy my mates all the time and ask how they are going out on their boats, and have a fishing FB page , so that's the gfor me at the moment.
    I attend Old Peoples Exercise classes every week and have progressed to lifting 1 kg dumb bells to chest height. The young Instructor loves fishing so I got into his ear about getting me up to strength to go fishing.
    My doctor has been told if he wants to go fishing with me so I can teach his kids he needs to get me well enough, he said one day I'll be able to go. He also promised me I 'm not going to die whilst on his shift so that's reassuring.

    Exercise is good. Use it or lose it.
    I can recommend water aerobics as a safe way of moving and pushing against the water is the useful exercise. Lots of people with mobility issues do it as a safe, non damaging exercise. Plus you get a swim, which is nice in a warm pool in winter.
