Hi, good morning and Happy New Year to everyone.
I said I'd come back in November and let you know what the neuro surgeon said following my last consultation with him. You may recall me mentioning that I have a very close friend who is very very ill - events have overtaken me somewhat, and I haven't had time to sit, think, and compose my thoughts about myself on here!
The surgeon thinks that I'm well enough to be left for now, which is good as far as I'm concerned. He doesn't want to try me on steroids or any other medication so that is where I'm at right now.
My hands and feet are not much better and I get some horrendous cramps in my legs at night with the occasional "snapping" sensation in my arms when I reach out for something - that feels really strange!
So I guess it is just a case of getting on with it and hoping it stays where it is - I am so loathe to try any drugs of any kind but I will keep an open mind about that.
