Welcome to Mastocytosis Society Canada support forum! Say hello and leave us messages here.....
Chuck69: I have been a virtual prisoner in my own home for the past 9 years. Every time I go outside my door, I come down with flu-like symptoms. I found on here somewhere about using antihistamine and ranitidine. This does help a lot, but I still get sick. Jun 27, 2015 20:47:33 GMT -5
Anyone There?: Hi, I signed up several days ago and sent an email privately as was required and still do not have access. Desperately looking for a doctor near Saskatoon, SK. Jun 28, 2015 13:31:54 GMT -5
jacquie: My 4 year old is going in for adenoid and tonsil surgery, she will be going through an anaesthetic testing. I'm scared about this. Can anyone give me some info on what could happen? Has anyone gone through this? Jul 3, 2015 20:43:46 GMT -5
jacquie: My 4 year old will need to go through surgery to remove Adenoids and Tonsils, I'm a bit worried about this. Has anyone had to go through this. I believe the anaesthetic is not good considering her health in regards to her Mastocytoma. I would like to know Jul 3, 2015 20:55:23 GMT -5
jacquie: This website is very difficult to use, it is not user friendly, I am having a hard time following other posts and I imagine it's the same with others. Can someone give me some insight on how to go about this in an easier way? Jul 3, 2015 21:06:36 GMT -5
jacquie: yes I agree, it's very hard to navigate this website. Jul 3, 2015 21:19:39 GMT -5
Fiona: Hello Everybody...is anybody out there? Aug 3, 2015 9:02:55 GMT -5
Mastomom: Hi, I find this site difficult to navigate but thought I would give it a try. My daughter was diagnosed with cutaneous masto at 9 months old. She is now 14 with anaphylactic episodes. testing for systemic masto. anyone with similar experience? Aug 4, 2015 10:07:11 GMT -5
Maria I.: Hello everyone I diagnosed with systemic masto, I'm having a bone marrow biopsy done.. I have to go under general as we all know local is a NO NO. My anesthesiologist has taken some of my fears away. Jacque I hope all is well with your daughter. Ajax Aug 6, 2015 20:54:16 GMT -5
Maria I.: Jacquei, ask your daughters doctor if she can be put on prednisone before surgery. That's what my amunolagist gave me and my anesthesiologist Agreed as well as high doeses of antihistamines. Ask the Doctor. Aug 6, 2015 21:03:26 GMT -5
arrowfairy: Hi everyone! Thanks to everyone who is on this forum and posts things. Does anyone know anything about the progression of mastocytosis/MCAS? My bloodwork has been coming back normal including tryptase levels, but I've got textbook symptoms/anaphylaxis. Sept 22, 2015 19:45:20 GMT -5
soterion: Arrowfairy, sorry I can't help, seems SM symptoms and progression varies by individuals. Sept 25, 2015 21:19:34 GMT -5
JacquieHH: Chuck69: I'm Canadian, have Systemic Mastocytosis, and belong to several support sites primarily in the US. Just signed up here today. It is difficult to navigate, but I look forward to learning more. Oct 4, 2015 20:18:44 GMT -5
kathy59: I wondered if there was anyone in Edmonton Alberta who is being treated by doctors for Mastocytosis and if you could pass on their names Oct 23, 2015 17:28:15 GMT -5
sg: kathy59. Have been to Dr Sideri. She is very familiar with Mastocytosis but will not engage with me about MCAS. She diagnosed me with Urticaria and Reactive Asthma. All allergy testing negative. Personable and willing to help. Oct 25, 2015 14:40:07 GMT -5
ck: Hi everyone. Chronic idiopathic urticaria... cannot get any allergist, dermatologist or doctor to give me a diagnosis. Has anyone tried Xolair? Oct 27, 2015 12:04:37 GMT -5
ines: Hi ck, I'm on Xolair every two weeks Oct 28, 2015 11:45:06 GMT -5
kathy59: thank you sg - I am presently seeing Dr Taparia but she seems to brush things off Nov 8, 2015 0:42:12 GMT -5
Rosy: wondering if anyone has any info on elevated ferritin and Masto? Nov 26, 2015 15:17:41 GMT -5
jacquieh: Ive been diagnosed with SM. My Allergist/Immunologist Dr. Waserman and Oncologist/Hemotologist both in Hamilton, both wonderful. I have been referred to Vadas, and will see him in February Nov 26, 2015 22:39:25 GMT -5
