Re: Dr. Kudrow, that's an absolute shame. I just yesterday referred someone to Dr. Kudrow and referenced him as one of the most renowned CH doctors in the US. It's a shame he has such a poor view of CH.com and especially OUCH.
I tend to agree with Todd in that this message board has evolved into what it is and probably isn't going to change. There is obviously a need for a place like this where we can interact, fight, assist, bicker, sooth and advise. There must be or the MB wouldn't be what it is.
Is there a need for another place to talk strictly CH? A place that is strongly policed and restricted to medical/scientific talk about CH? A place where the rude and offensive posts are quickly removed?
I hesitate to put up another message board unless there is a strong desire to have one along the scientific lines. Even then it becomes difficult to decide which posts stay and which don't.
Although I hesitate, I definately don't want OUCH to be seen in the light that Dr. Kudrow sees it. I want it to be seen by the medical professionals as a legitmate organization. One to be listened to when we tell them about our disease. One that is taken seriously!!!!
So maybe there is a need for a non-touchy/feely board at OUCH. I don't know just yet. This is the kind of thing I need some input on from you. Let me know what you think. I'll also talk it over with DJ when I see him this Saturday.
Speaking of DJ, his surgery is 07:30 PST and should last 7 hours. The good news is that the tests show he only needs the graf on the right side of his head. Not both sides as was thought at first.
Stay well and thanks for the post Mary.
