Well I saw my NS today in what ended up being almost a 3.5 hour appt. I finally got the results of the CT Meylogram. Not very pretty. He said when I can no longer take the pain to schedule the thoracic fusion. It is kind of a catch 22. I have 2 years until the insurance co settles my claim, we are planning a family vacation to Spain in 16-18 months as a 20 year anniversery and my daughters graduation present. But maybe I will start feeling better?
My arms/hand have gotten much worse so he did a set of flex ext x-rays. I have some movement (instability) above the fusion and now I am having another mri (flex/ext mri & I never heard if this one).
I see the NS again next month unless the new mri turns into an emergency.
I saw my PM yesterday who offered to do another block (no thank you... although I would do it if my NS thought it would help). He increased my Oxycontin cr to 40 mg twice a day, but kept the oxycode and robaxin the same.
So basically no good news maybe next time
