:''( The last few days the pain in my left arm and shoulder and neck has increased noticeably. I am waiting for scheduling for one more MRI before ACDF surgery.
The weather has gotten significantly colder as well in the past week. I saw some snow on the top of the mountains where we are. The pain got really bad today. I took my meds as scheduled: morphine, lyrica, Vicodin. They help,but wow! Sometimes it can still be bad.
I just want this surgery done soon and its taking sooo long for it to happen! I didn't fit in the Closed MRI. The techs there said the surgeon is very meticulous and has to have the MRI just the way he wants before he will do surgery.
The surgeons office is supposed to call me back to schedule an Open MRI at a location where the machine has a much stronger magnet than the last one I had it done on.
Anyway, it hurts bad so I'm gonna bail now and talk to ya all later!
Thanks for listening!
