Well, the PA pulled my wires today. No problems. She wants me to do a different neurostimulator trial that will only stimulate my lower back. However... she won't sign off on anything until I am cleared by a neurologist.
Yikes... ok... so... the day of the procedure, I may or may not have had a petit mal seizure when I got home. According to my son, I was staring off at nothing, didn't answer him when he called me, and started to fall over. He caught me, and he and my other son were yelling. (Son #2 later told me that 911 was dialed, but he hadn't pressed "talk" yet.) This happened to me once before, about
a decade ago. Doctor sent me for a test, and the best guess was that I had a one-off seizure due to exhaustion and that it would probably never happen again. I have had nothing vaguely resembling this happen since that time... until last week.
Gah! So... I have an appointment last week with a neurologist. Any idea of what's going to happen or how he's planning on figuring out what happened to me? Nah... I'm not nervous or anything... why in the world would you think something like that???
