This week I'm running on nervous energy. I'm trying to tie up loose ends and get things organized before my surgery on September 8th. I've done a great job so far - I've crammed 4 doctor's appointments into 3 days. I've also put up my fall w... Read more
I Got Answers Finally!
Sunday, August 28, 2011      5 comments

Finally, I got the answers for which I've been waiting 3-4 years. I will be needing several surgeries as I suspected but couldn't get anyone to listen to me up until now. This neurosurgeon actually took the time to study my most recent MRI in... Read more

Wednesday, August 03, 2011      2 comments

The doctors told me yesterday that my symptoms match problems with the C-5 C-6 area but the issue on my MRI looks like it is an old issue because the disc is calcified even if it is sitting on a nerve root. I tried to explain that as it gets la... Read more
I Now Have An Appointment To Discuss Options
Wednesday, July 27, 2011      5 comments

I took a chance, dug my heels in and said Botox won't make my arm or neck better. If I still have headaches after they are fixed, then I will have the shots but no more chemicals are going into this body until we fix the problem. I was almost ... Read more
