Hello Judy,

Is it possible for you to attach the MRI report or write down the whole part and context which says no normal blood flow?

but it is a process that takes 3:days to obtain. Can I just get back with you?
Neurologist: drphophalia, Other replied 7 months ago

Sure you can get back to me later too. No issue about it. That way, I would be able to give you more informed answer.

My initial response is; no normal flow, does not mean brain damage. Whenever there is surgery, there is a scar formation which has less supply than the normal tissue. It does not mean tissue damage.

I am not able to access my records very soon. Could be until January. Because of this, I should probably just say thank you and enter I didn't find out for sure. If you could waive the fee, let me know. Thank you and I will contact you again.
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
If you can't waive the fee I understand. Thanks.
