Hi - just wondering if anyone in Australia diagnosed with MM.  Would like to know your experience - did you go public or private? I am from Brisbane.

Hi Kath I am from Melbourne nearly 43 years old I have had one bypass on the right side and just on the waiting list for my 2nd operation on the left side. There are a few people from Australia on here perhaps you will have more luck if you post in the other section of this forum. I know there is a lady named Della from Brisbane join the facebook group World MoyaMoya day and post there. You can also friend me on facebook Maryanne Maltby or personal message me here. Smiley

Peter from Laurieton NSW - the other half [60 y.o.] had 3 TIAs in mid June and had a stent placed in inner left carotid at John Hunter Hospital Newcastle. 2 months later she had another 2 TIAs and went straight back to John Hunter where her neurological interventionist [Dr Ferdinand Miteff] arranged for a neurovascular surgeon [Dr Mitch Hansen] to do a STA-MCA bypass [his 13th]. Pretty good outcome so far, however it's only been two weeks since the surgery.

Depression seems to be the next hurdle to overcome - hers, not mine, as she is uncertain as to her future .... so I need to devise a plan to get her to the local GP under some other pretext. Needless to say she's had her fill of angiograms and blood letting to last her a while.

We both can't speak more highly of Dr Miteff and his team [including Dr Hansen]. Dr Miteff met us at 1.30am at the hospital on a Sunday morning to make sure we got past the triage nurse at ER and were admitted into the correct ward. He's got my vote for Australian of the Year.
