Sorry haven't been around for awhile. Lots going on with me. Thought that things were finally taking a turn for the better but then bang here comes the crap again.
I had an appointment with the Pain Consultant following the PRF a couple of weeks ago. Unfortunately, it didn't help and my only options now are either a third surgery or to insert a spinal cord stimulator - which he said is not curative so, the op is the only option. I'm being sent to yet another spinal specialist to see what he would do and to see if he's happy to proceed with the procedure. I just feel so sick that this journey that I have been on for the past 12 months is not ending. This couldn't have come at a worse time. I'm off on a girlie hol on Tuesday and I so don't want this to ruin it not for me but for my 3 friends.
I'm having a battle with the trust to investigate this and of course being in the know has helped as I know what buttons to press. For the first time since all this began I am finally seeing me as a patient and not a medical professional and YES you guys were so right all along telling me I need to take this further and not let them get away with ruining my life and career. I've had enough of my silence and am about ready to start shouting.
I just don't know what to do next. I don't know which option is best. I feel numb and can't really think about all this. It sucks. :''(
