Well my spiney friends, I have been trying to get on with my life and not focus on my spine problems. This has meant that I have not posted here very much recently. (Sorry :S )
The referral that was made last August for an appointment to see a neurosurgeon about my neck, had finally arrived (almost).
I was due to see him tomorrow afternoon.
When I got home from work today, there was a phone message cancelling my appointment because he was unwell. They said they would be in touch to give me another appointment.
I was devastated!! I know, he can't help being unwell and hope he will recover quickly.
But the frustration of having waited for over 7 months, and now I still don't know when I will get to see him, is horrible.
It must be even worse for those who have their surgery cancelled at the last minute.
I have now accepted it and will continue to try to get on with my life while I wait. I am also waiting for a lumbar MRI to see why I am getting so many increasing neurological symptoms in my legs and feet again, almost a year after my fusion surgery.
Life as a spiney sure does get you down! [( :''(
