Health Update 4/29/18
Well, I believe over 5 hours straight in the tub is long enough. It’s the only thing giving me relief for now. Heading to see my surgeon tomorrow afternoon at 4:15pm. We’ll be taking a look at my recent Myelogram. I have no idea what to expect or if it can really show the extent of my nerve damage. My doctor said before that there is really nothing presently that can show the nerves well especially inside of them.
I’ve got a lot of things to contemplate. One, I don’t think I can function long without another pain shot. This nerve issue in my tailbone is not something I can just ignore. But, if I get the referral for the shot who knows how long I will wait to get it.
I’ve pretty much decided I’m not going to get the battery replaced for now. I would rather live with the extra discomfort that reopen a huge incision for the 3rd time in just 9 months. For now I’m just having to choose my battles wisely.
All this said I do plan to visit Mayo Clinic as soon as I can. I believe my neuropathy issues are way greater than my doctors realize. We’re talking nerve surges running from my feet to my face. I can never predict when my nerves will run wild again. I’m just having to build my life around proactively doing what I can for relief. We will see tomorrow what tomorrow holds.
