Hello all, I had my 3 month follow up (a little early) today. I was able to convince my doc that my left leg is not getting any better. That something is wrong, he agreed. He has me scheduled for a CT Myelogram on Friday to look for a possible cause of my nerve pain. He said it could be anything from scar tissue, to hardware possibly irritating the nerve. He opted to skip an MRI because it can have a lot of artifacts from the hardware. If the CT shows the problem, we will come up with a plan, from new meds, to injections, to surgery, depending on what it shows. If the CT does not clearly show the problem, he wants to do
exploratory surgery to find the problem. Has anyone had to do this, and what was the outcome.
I also had to turn in my paperwork to go from FMLA to Personal leave effective Monday. I emptied my desk as my position will be posted next week.I am technically an employee and if I am released back to work within 6 months from Monday, they will help me find a comprable position with no loss of tenure, 9 years. If not I will be officially "unemployed". I have swung the entire guantlet of emotions and have found the most beautiful silver lining. I get to be a stay at home mom. I never had that option before. I am excited.
If I get results before Thanksgiving I will post, if not I hope you all are able to count your blessings next week, and enjoy your holiday, with whatever restrictions we may have, we still are alive and kicking (well maybe not kicking) but alive and able to make the best of what we can do.
God Bless and Keep you!!
