Running Errands

Wednesday, August 31, 2011      4 comments

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

Flat and In Bed

Sunday, August 07, 2011      6 comments

For two days now I've been in bed due to severe pain and the inability to move my neck and left arm. All I did was grab a beach cover up and pull it over my head to take the dogs outside. Voila! Instant pain and I'm flat. On a positive note,... Read more

My Symptoms Match C-5 C-6 Problems The Doctor Says

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

The Squeaky Wheel Got An Answer

Saturday, July 23, 2011      6 comments

Dealing With Frustration

I spoke to the nurse at my doctor's office for the results of my MRI this afternoon. She told me that my results were normal. I asked her how that could be possible when they weren't normal the last time. I have a progressive, degenerative di... Read more

I had my MRI done yesterday. Hooray, it is now finished and out of the way! I even asked for a disk of the images and they made one for me even though there isn't even a radiologist report yet. By the time I was finished I looked like a pin c... Read more

My updated MRI is scheduled at Tampa General for Thursday at 7a.m. I've had my blood work done so I can have the dye part of the test and it should all be a go for that morning. I hope their equipment will be "cutting edge" like Mayo since it ... Read more

Mayo's Schedule and Mine

Thursday, July 07, 2011      4 comments

I am so glad that I called my neurologist/migraine specialist at the Mayo. He called me right back that afternoon and told me that I should have called my local neurologist right after the pool incident happened. What local neurologist? I'm s... Read more

Still Waiting on the Mayo Clinic

Tuesday, June 28, 2011      4 comments

Thank you to those of you who have asked about my progress with the Mayo Clinic. I'm sorry to say that I'm still in a holding pattern at this point in time. Although it is utterly frustrating and sometimes downright scary at times, they seem t... Read more
