Tuesday, my 2nd cataract surgery went well. I’m looking forward to getting new glasses and seeing the improvement. Yesterday, I had my first appointment with the speech therapist, and did some swallowing tests so she could see what’s going on from an external view. Next week I’m having a barium swallow x-ray. While the barium is present, I’ll swallow various things to see, for one thing, if I’m at risk for aspirating. After that appointment, I had a follow-up blood draw, and found that I’m still bleeding internally somewhere. Then, I had an MRI of my brain and spine as part of an MS assessment. I didn’t enjoy the MRI at all.
More to come next week. I can’t have the spinal cord stimulator implanted until we figure out where I’m bleeding.
@jimhd I have been wondering about all of your upcoming tests, Jim. Keep in touch and let us know how you are doing. Teresa
