JeeZ, you guys! After going though a number of tests and an MRI, my neurologist has decided that my arm and leg weakness (which has been increasing the last couple of years) is due not to a fall I took, but to the disks in my cervical spine pushing on the spinal cord. She was pleased as all get out that this was the problem rather than a motor neuron disease. I’m scheduled to see a neuro-surgeon this friday.
Now I’m panicking at the thought of months of recovery and it not helping me get back to some sort of normal. I haven’t been upstairs since August 2005. I haven’t been able to sleep in my own bed or showered anyplace but the first floor laundry tubs. I’m living out of my family room.
I guess I better get some kind of guarantee from this guy that I’m going to improve without mego-pain and ability to go back to normal living, huh?
My daughter just moved to Yuma AZ and a new job and my DH and I were going to visit her at the end of May. Now I wonder???
Maybe I should just try and deal with the mobility problems. Ya think?
