For me this is the most horrible thing yet to happen, it not only scares me it is totally strips me of all dignity. I have been complaining for about severe hip pain when I wake in the mornings. Finally broke down and went to see my doctor. After the lecture of "WHY DID YOU WAIT SO LONG" (cause I am used to pain and thought it would go away), he sent me to have another MRI and warned me that I was facing more back surgery.
One of my concerns then and now is much worse is the incontence of both bowel and bladder functions. It is happening more and more often. I told him that it was happening now and then and at that time it was, now it is happening at least 3 to 5 times a week... What is wrong with me?
I can't see him until the 8th as he is out of country on mission work... all I know of the MRI results is an impingment and he added a Fentnayl Patch until I see him again.
What should I do until he comes back? I have heard that it is important to see a doctor ASAP, but I DO NOT TRUST any other doctors in this small town.
Any advice would be sooooo helpful. I am so scared to go anywhere afraid I will have another accident and am totally embarrassed that I have withdrawn from family and friends. This newest problem really upsets me more than the pain.
