  • Good idea Mary! Right now Candy needs a miracle to help her. She need support, so she doesn't feel so alone. She's having rough time right now, and feel backed into a corner. I have tried to think of numerous ways for her to get a MRI quicker, but in Canada the waits are long. Her ns put a rush on getting her in, but so far she hasn't heard anything. If anyone from Canada knows anyway to get in for a MRI sooner, please let Candy know. You can post here, or send her a pm at vgearshifter. Also if you know of a good pm dr or physiatrist in the Toronto area that also would be great.

    She needs her fellow Spine Health member to help her right now. She has disc issues with her cervical, thoracic, and lumbar from a car accident 2 yrs ago. These are just the worst issues she has. She has multiple smaller issue that put on top of her spine, just make life difficult at times.

    Please send her your prayers. If you have any ideas she would be most grateful. Candy you know your always in my thoughts, and prayers. I wish I could do more, or just be closer to give you that hug you so deserve for being a true friend.
    Take care, and I know in my heart things will work out. It just taking it sweet old time.

  • Thank you both. It really is nice to know I have friends like you two who really do care enough to ask for help for me. God bless and may you get all that you need in life.

  • I will be thinking of you, Candy, and will say prayers that you can get your MRI done as quickly as possible.

    I hope you will receive a PM from a fellow member of Spine-Health, who may know of a doctor who can help you in the Toronto area.

    You never know, a new member might come along and read this too!

    I wish you the best,

  • Candy, you are in my thoughts and prayes!!! With so many of the SH Spineys praying for you, I know God wil bless you and help you get the MRI`S, or any test that will help you get better!!! Candy, your wisdom and wit has helped me and so many others. I can never thank you enough for your sweetness and wisdom!!! I believe in the power of positive thinking, so with that said, those of us in SH, will be praying and sending all the love and hugs to you!!! Sweetheart, keep the faith! You will get your MRI!!! And most of all you will get well!!! TC, Candy, We love you, Brenda Cannon

  • you the best Candy. The waiting I know has been so hard on you. I'll keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

  • From all of our chats, especially of late, I am there for you! I am sorry that the system is being slow for you, but it does sound like Charry may have an answer to speed up your MRI. Please know as always, positive thoughts and energy going to ya!! *HUG*

  • Thanks for the kind words.

    Charry had a great idea but 1. Can't handle driving in high volumes of traffic. 2. My doctors don't have authority to send me that far over in our city for an mri. Sorry but thanks very much for the help.

    Best wishes to all.
  • Candy,

    I wish there was more that we could do for you. I hope that knowing that so many of us are praying for a quicker appointment for your MRI to speed up your treatment comforts you. I felt helpless when I first read Mary's post, but then I felt proud of my fellow spiney friends when I read their responses. Thank you Mary for giving us this opportunity to reach out to Candy!!
    Candy, you are so strong and helpful. I know that your circumstances are very challenging, and your strength shines through it all. I told you that I could not believe the MRI image that you showed me, never mind your new concerns. I hope to hear that you are seen very, very soon! Something has to happen and soon. I am glad to hear that your doctor recognizes this. I am thinking of you, sending you lots of caring thoughts, and praying for you.

    Lots of gentle hugs,
  • Hey Candy... I don't know exactly what you have going on other than whats been said above. The M.R.I. is sure long over due. I'm sending you a PM. I wish you well and your in my thoughts. I'll catch up with ya in chat <):)
  • It means a lot when you all show your support.

    I know my other mri looks bad enough Glo and I am actually scared to find out if there are any more herniations in the thoracic. I also don't want to be on meds for the rest of my life already. I am only 40 this year. I know I am strong but this is really starting to take a toll on me. Even my man is getting sick of seeing me in so much pain and can't help me.

    Thanks George for the pm and the wishes. I will look into what you sent and get back to you.
