Doctors Update

I am so pleased that I finally got around to going back to the Doctors, I won't bore you with all the details but the outcome was good, I'm getting a referral to have a MRI scan, I'm also getting a referral to see about getting some sticks, something to help on bad days or if I will be on my feet for a long time.

I got wrong for leaving it so long it was over 3 years since I went to the doctors about my back and had a bone density scan, I never went back because they said it was normal ware and tear, I took that it meant what was happening was normal and that I must just be soft when it actually meant that the bone density scan was normal. Silly really.

 

So until I get all of the appointments through I will plod on and keep taking the pain killers.

I'm pleased you're finally getting seen by the professionals Jak. To be constantly in pain is draining. xxx

Hope they get it sorted for you Jak, I've been told the same, normal wear and tear,and it's your age, etc. I have no probs walking etc, just a constant pain in the neck and a large lump, some days worse than others lol..maybe I should look into it further xxx

Hi Jak
I know what you are going through and hope they find the right treatment. Mine has ended in cortisone injections and they have helped a lot.
Glad you went back to have it taken care of
Best Wishes to you

good luck with all. keep going to the dr yearly. try to get the same one if you can. sometimes they notice things before you do. i'm getting to that age where i'm going way more than i want to. but since i still want to do, i must go. so should you.

Soo glad to hear, that you´re finally getting some help Jak, and are getting something done about it too. It is so important to look after yourself and rather before it´s too late. Really pleased to read this and please keep us updated, how things works out on the way.

Hi Jak,
Really pleased youve seen the consultant. I know what it's like to be in constant pain, sometimes it feels like it completely consuming you. I hope the MRI goes well. It's very loud, sounds like a train. Whenever I have one I ask for some music to listen to. It gives you something else to focus on. I also keep my eyes closed, that is if the MRI is a long tube. Sometimes the scan is an open-ended tube. Hope that helps.mTake care x
