Going to see a Neuro-surgeon for possible back surgery

Mar 07, 2008 - 2 comments

I went to see my pain management dr yesterday and he is sending my to a neuro-surgeon for possible surgery. This will all depend on what my neurologist says. However, this surgery is something I have wanted for a few years. I realize that is is not a quick fix to my back pain, however I definitely need to do something. The pain is getting worse and worse. Wish me luck.

Still not feeling well and losing weight

Losing weight



Still not feeling like myself. Dr. put me back on a bland diet for now. Cough is getting worse again. I'm just not sure what to do. This is just getting to be too much for me anymore. Sometimes I just wish it was over. I would never hurt myself, but with all this going on I have my days. Thank goodness I have a strong support system at home and I have the people that I met through these forums. You have made me stronger and made me realize that there are strangers out there who actually care.

Take Care and God Bless

Thanks everyone for your comments. It is nice to have people to care for you that have never met you. I am doing alot better. I had some blood work done today and an MRI in March. Then I will see the neuroligist again. I know that some of you are concerned about what my dr said about the NPH. That is his opinion and well I think he was just throwing that out at me. I will tell him to do more blood work to test my thyroid and other illnesses.

I start back to pool therapy on Monday and am really excited. It will help my fibro tremendously.

I don't know whether I have lost anymore weight, as I haven't gone and weighed myself this week.

Again Thanks for all your support. I really have appreciated it.

help me



Well I had a drs appt yesterday and I have lost a total amount of weight of 28lbs. since the middle of January. My dr is sending me to a Neurologist for some testing. He feels that I may have some fluid on my brain. I am scared. I am have short term memory problems, balancing problems, and other things to many to mention LOL. I spoke to my friend in WVa today and he feels that I shouldn't worry until I know for sure.  I just need the support of the forum to help me through this. I have already gotten alot of support already and that has been very comforting.

Thank You and God Bless
