So yesterday my service dog gave a pre-alert witch give me 30min to an hour while I was at my doctors visit.. I reassured my doctor that she could finish her assessment and I should be good but she choise to ended my visit right then and there.
What does your doctor do if you have a seizure while there?
Do you have a plan set with your doctor just incase?
I’ve pointed this out many times in the past ,and you incident is a great example, @A MyEpilepsyTeam Member . It’s very frustrating and it seem that many Dr.’s have no clue , what to do when someone Seizures. I think all Dr.’s and even nurses ,need a crash course on Epilepsy. Especially Epilepsy First Aide actions. I just think they are more afraid, than anything .
If you know your body well enough and are confident , then I can’t see why the Dr. Couldn’t just finish your assessment. Plus you have your service dog 🐕. Now if you had one more seizure after the first one, I could understand more , about them stopping your physical.
Hi Kimberly. Choice dog. I have a Black Labrador x Shorthared German Pointer Cross. He's just a wee bit taller at the hind than at His fore, jet black and a super passive boy.
'Onyx' is His name. He is named
after the semi-Precious mineral stone Onyx is a variety of the oxide mineral chalcedony.
Regards your comment on a plan in case one has a seizure at the GP.
I think that is a great idea.
My first Tonic-Clonic was in a emergency waiting room. I think that was better than anywhere else xD
i have 3 drs from different areas (cleveland oh, chicago il, and my local town) and they know ahead of time that i may have a seizure and wait a few seconds. i also get a friend or family member so that 1) i forget something and someone will remind me 2) when i have a seizure, someone will take notes for me.
