Quick update... Was back in hospital yesterday and consulted with the head of neurology. Short 'n' sweet, he says it's "bad". So, I'll be having an
MRI on Oct 22nd, assuming I can get by til then and don't have to be hospitalized. (And I will do my darnedest to avoid that.)
He also prescribed me another medication as the fentanyl wasn't helping much. It's also an opiate but apparently packs a bigger punch against pain.
Slow release thing. Could take a couple of days before I see its full effects but meanwhile it's helping a little. I can get to the local shop on
crutches without stopping more than once, which is such a relief.
Meanwhile I am still having the IVs every morning Mon-Fri at my doc's. The sister is now having to search for places to stick the IV needle in.
I'm trying to stay positive and hang in there. Heck, things could be worse, after all.
So good to see some "old names" here; people I've known via ATS for around a decade or so in some cases, like MBlah, AD, Doodle and others -- and also
several of the ATS staff. Forgive me for not mentioning everyone, these darned opiate meds mess with my head a little.
