Hi Ruff13 an a very warm welcome to the online community
I haven't had the same treatment as you so can't help with your questions but I wanted to take the opportunity to welcome you to the group.
While you're waiting for replies you could take a look through previous posts in this group to see if any mention what you're looking for. You can then respond to anyone who you think could help you further.
When you have a minute it would be really useful if could pop something about your journey so far into your profile as it helps others when answering or looking for someone with a similar diagnosis. It also means that you don't have to keep repeating yourself. To do this click on your username and then select 'Edit Profile'. You can amend it at any time and if you're not sure what to write you can take a look at mine by clicking on my username.
