Well, in just a short two hours, I will be seeing the surgeon who did my fusion at L4-5 about the new MRI showing the stenosis at L 2-3, 3-4 and L5-S1, and the foraminal stenosis. This should be interesting since I have since lost control of my bladder three times since that MRI, and from what he has said to my physiatrist, he doesn't believe the new MRI is "accurate".
I guess the machine just made the pictures up in it's computer brain
Anyway, the physiatrist is coming into the appointment with me, so there will be someone in my corner, who has been seeing me consistently throughout this last year ( I am less than one month away from 1 year post op).
We tried to switch me over to methadone, and it made me very , very tired, which does not work with small kids in the house, but anyway, wish me well if you are so inclined.
Otherwise, I may have to beat him with my cane today. Oh, and the physiatrist signed off on a handicapped license plate for me.........a permanent one......doesn't that make me feel good about the prognosis for me.......????
