My Results

Saturday, July 12, 2014

I want to thank everyone for their prayers.

My MRI results were not as good as I had hoped. From my neck to just above my shoulders I have degenerative disc disease. Really bad arthritis in the neck area they also found a cyst on one of my discs, by my neck. The rest of my back is OK until lower back. I have a stress fracture just up from tail bone.
I will now be going to see a neurologist to see what can be done.

My leg is healing and I am finally able to walk on it for short periods.

My exercising has been nothing and my weight loss has been a 3 pound gain. I have learned a few lessons from all of this,

1. You need to include some kind of exercise with your diet,
2. I need to start taking better care of myself
3. Need to be more active
4. I need to spend more time doing the things I love to do and destress.

Please keep me in your prayers. Thank you spark friends. emoticon emoticon

    Debbie all your lessons learned are great ones and ones we all need to learn. Hope you continue to improve, hopefully the neurologist has some suggestions. Can you do any of the chair exercises. Any movement is better than no movement. I will finally get my MRI tomorrow on my neck. It has not been hurting as much but I continue to have intermittent numbness in my Rt, arm. Hugs to you and have a good day.

    Deb don't you worry hon remember God has a plan for you and you have lots of love and support right here on SP !!! Keep your faith in Him strong. Do what needs to be done to get back on track when you can, it only takes baby steps to get there and you can do that. Follow the advise of those that God has given the wisdom too to make such decisions like your doctors. Be smart and learn as much as you can regarding your medical issues. The internet can be a very useful tool. Lessons learned are good tools as well.!!!

I read this somewhere once and try to remember it often ......

" Living a healthy life means a good diet and regular exercise, NOT one or the other " !!!

of course exercise is always the last thing I think of :-(

Take care of you Deb, your so worth it !!!!

love ya

    Every once in a while we all run into "One of those days", we all have had them. It sounds like you have had your share for a while. Lift your head and know that we are here for you. I understand back problems, and I know your Neurologist will let you know which exercise you can and cannot do. Just don't rush it.
Sending Prayers your way.... emoticon
