Hi, I took a bit of a sabatical, but have been popping on seeing how everybody was doing past two months.
Unfortunately, I had a MVA last week hit by a truck last week
grrrrr! Collision right rear door and tailend of my minivan. Im supposed to feel good about that - - it could have been the whole front-end and me & my little Lhasa and ShihZhu in front seats. ( so supposed to feel good about that for my van but still have major damage) Dealing with possible total loss by insurance.
But of course that's the least of my worries - -
I wrenched my neck to the right during the evasive turning as far to left I could and looking far right to assess the final seconds of collision. Got fusion of C-3 thru C-6, and scoliosis above my mobility to right is most compromised - - Im dealing with muscle/ligament pain, nerve pain from C-6/7, T-1/2, T-2/3 DDD issues. DDD with multiple bone spurs severe on left causing stenosis nerve root junctions. Past year has been sudden, neuropathy nerve compression damage = loss of left hand dexterity coordination (nerve/muscle damage)....and I now got the right side stenosis DDD screaming at me.
Im a wearing a Vista Cervical collar better than Philadelphia collar, rigid but good padding for good support. Pain & instability I feel in moving my head any angle and even just a little bit. Gabapentin, Hydrocodone, Flexeril, heat wraps for past week. MRI being scheduled. Did x-ray post-mva required before doing MRI.
So....sorry I had to come on with this kind of news, I had wished it could have been I won the lottery and was taking a cruise
! Looks like I'm heading into chapter 22 now with the saga of my C-Spine and T-Spine. Hoping to lean into my Spiney-friends and some support for where this is going
for me......(and my beloved minivan.
