Pain in the neck....literally
I was living with it for the most part, but I fell (click for blog entry) back on December 7th, and it has been killing me ever since.
Tried a bunch of stuff and just last week, Dr Higgins threw me on my second steriod treatment (I guess I wont be going into the Baseball Hall of Fame along with Mark McGuire anytime soon). But with the exception of a slight amount of extended movement for a day or so, they really dont do anything.
So back to the NeuroSurgeon I go on February 23rd to discuss the fusion surgury.
I watched a video, an actual video of the surgery, on YouTube. Now with all the stuff I have had done, including the 3 heart procedures and having to give myself blood thinner shots in my stomach, I just cant watch medical stuff. God bless Nancy, who works in the dental field, she tries to tell me what she does some days and I am such a wimp and cant deal with it. Anyway, I tried to watch this surgery video - not the best idea. Click here if YOU want to watch it cause I aint :) LOL
But I have to do something.
Be well - dont take what you have for granted.
