In recent Coronation Street scenes, Paul Foreman (Peter Ash) learned some unsettling information as his new exit storyline got underway.
Following a street accident, Paul was referred to a neurologist for evaluation after enduring several weeks of what he thought to be a bruised nerve.
He received some unfavorable news, though, when the neurologist discovered that he had no signs of a bruised nerve and that his accident had absolutely nothing to do with the problems that had been keeping him from working.
Due to Dee Dee Bailey’s (Channique Sterling-Brown) admission that Paul would no longer be able to pursue legal action against Carla Barlow (Alison King), who had struck him with the object, Paul found himself in a difficult situation. Underworld van.
Paul was understandably horrified as worries about how he would pay his debts grew because he had taken out a loan that he thought he would be able to repay.
These unsettling scenes usher in Paul’s traumatic new storyline, which will see him receive a Motor Neurone Disease diagnosis (MND).
This narrative will trace the course of the illness as Paul initially manages it on his own before having to inform his loved ones.
Actor Peter Ash stated that Paul will soon see a specialist who will reveal the diagnosis.
He learns that they will be conducting MND testing.
“Paul doesn’t really know what that is, so he has to ask a little bit, and the consultant explains these would be the symptoms if it is MND. I think from that point on he just goes into shock, really.”
Paul is also not at all optimistic about it in his own mind. He kind of believes he has it. Paul believes that is what it is, even though he hasn’t been told he has it yet and has only been told that they are testing for it.
It makes sense; he says that there’s more going on than just a typical injury. His entire world is turned upside down once it starts to sink in.
How will Paul deal with his financial issues and a diagnosis that will change his life?
The MND Association and Coronation Street are collaborating closely on this storyline, which will examine the difficulties Paul and those around him will face in the upcoming months.
