Thanks for checking up on me. I have been kinda quiet lately. Just zooning out a bit. Anway, yes I have a cervical problem. No tests have been done yet with the expection of neurological tests in the office. There is weakness. I have tingeling down my right arm and pain in my shoulder. I roll up a pillow and put it under my neck when I lay down. My Dr.'s primary worry is that I have been through too much too soon to soon to date and having another surgery just might send me over the edge. Personally, I am the type that likes to get things over with. But, what they heck. I am not miserable yet, just afraid of getting there. We are also hoping that it might be stress, or allot of stress has been put on the upper part of my back because the lower part has been out of commission for so long. I agreed to wait and see and I will be seeing him every six weeks until this whole mess is over with.
The meds, still a problem, though now I count them and try to dole them out. It helps by about 3-4 a day, hey better then nothing. As of 1-1-2001 it will all start coming to an end according to my Dr. and that is fine with me. It will be strange to have a normal brain back, whatever that is.
How are you? I am always concerned about my buds. Take care and thanks again for thinking of me. God Bless...Stewart.
