Good Morning All!
Had my appointment with the neurosurgeon yesterday.
The news was good and not so good.
Good news…..my cervical spine is great!
The surgical are is perfect and the stenosis is gone.
Less good news….I am going to have surgery on my L3/4, in 3-4 weeks depending on how my T-spine MRI with contrast comes out.
More less good news…….There is something in my T-spine. We don't know if it is a tumor (malignant or not?) or something else there. There's why the new T-spine MRI with contrast.
Additional less good news…..Since my C-spine is good, the pain in my shoulder and arm may be a tear (rotator cuff or something else). Have to see a orthopedic surgeon.
So there it is. Some answers, some non-answers.
By the time this is all over, I'll be the bionic woman!!!
Tomorrow I take the MRI in the morning and I have an appointment with orthopedic surgeon in the afternoon.
Yes, I am a 'real' Floridian, spending my days at doctors or shopping.
To be continued………..

Here's to a pain-free day for us all!!!!!!!

Last night I took dropper of Hemp oil and rubbed Hemp lotion on my neck. Slept all night. Best rest I have had in months. It might cost but relief is worth it buy from reputable seller

I take it too. I was taking 300 two in the am and 2 in the pm. I just started to cut down because I didn't find it helped. Yesterday the doc told me to go back up.

Hi I'm Patricia in Louisville Kentucky and I've suffered from chronic pain since 2013 from spinal issues and inflammation in the spine. Since 2015 I've suffered from a non union broken left arm with very few doctors who will treat my pain.
