Re: Neuroma on the Ulnar Nerve
I went to see the surgeon today and the news wasn't good. I actually have two issues, one the neuroma, and two the entrapment of the nerve.The doctor isn't concerned about the nueroma cause it's so small and hasn't really grown, plus it was a result from the previous surgery. Since I already had one unsuccessful surgery, he was not optomistic about my outcome. I'm a reporter and I love my job and he actually said I should consider finding a new career. It was quite depressing news, but I've decided to meet with my pain specialist, a nuerosurgeon. I can't just accept this answer. I think with any chronic pain, it's a real challenge to stay optimistic, and be a good self-advocate. So, I'm going to be the best researcher and walk in paper and pen to all future doctor visits get all the answers and really determine what's the best option for me -- not just let one doctor tell me I have to give up my dream job.
