I saw a vascular surgeon this week at the advise of my neurosurgeon who thought that I might have thoracic outlet syndrome. Turns out that I do, of course. Apparently when I had my accident I tore some muscles in my neck and the scar tissue is squeezing the nerve bundle that goes into my arms. Both sides are affected but the right side is much worse. Surgery may be my only option because of the nature of the injury.
My husband works out of town and I called him after my doc visit. He didn't have time to talk and, later that evening he was too tired. We still haven't discussed it and I saw the surgeon on Wednesday. My mom still doesn't really know about it either (she lives with us) because she's been really out of it and couldn't understand what I was talking about. I'm taking her to the doctor today and hopefully we'll find out what's going on with her.
I can't help but feel hurt at the lack of concern here. I know he's "tired" of dealing with my problems but I don't think this is fair. I needed to talk about it- I've already had 2 surgeries in the last year and the thought of another one is scary.
He's left me so alone in this whole ordeal and I guess it's no different this time. Perhaps someday I'll get used to living alone in this relationship.
Thanks for letting me vent,
