hello

hi ladies and gents-im a plasterer looking to move with my family to either taz or melbourne-i did my aqf3 a couple of years ago and have 70% of my tra evidence together and then last summer was diagnosed with ms-bit of a bummer!we really now are unsure as to wether to proceed with our application-my symptoms are mild but as its a very uncertain condition regarding its progression its all a bit up in the air-does anybody got any similar experience of this sort of situation??

Sorry to hear of that for you Oscars dad and any medical situations are always decided not by Immi people themselves but the independent medical officers who will look at the total picture of what is and what could happen etc.
We have put a sticky thread in the Visas and Immigration section on medicals and so there'll be some more info there.
Hope it goes well for you and we could use heaps of plasterers what with all the wall linings gone with flooding.

Before you take an uneducated gamble, I'm not too sure whether it's in the info on that sticky including links or not but I saw somewhere that it was mentioned that one of the areas that medical officers use for their judgement will be the likely cost of treatment over the next five years, a figure of somewhere about $5000 p.a. I believe being acceptable.

So, you may have already sat down with the Medicos back home to discuss your health and future treatment prediction and so they may be able to put an estimated cost on it for you and that may put your mind a bit more at ease on one aspect.

thanks for info-at present i see neurologist every 6 mths,ms specialist every12 and ms nurse every 3 mths-my particular type is primary progressive so im on no regular medication ie beta interferon-my type doesnt seem to be treatable so i have no drug expense but it doesnt mean to say i wont need something in the future-the meds here are pretty positive about it all-very much a case of do what you can do whilst you can do it-ive got a bit of a limp and sometimes lose my balance a bit but it hasnt stopped me working etc-dunno how long that will remain the case-it may nnever develop any further or it may go pearshaped tomorrow-nobody seems to know
