My Neurologist just called and told me she was able to get me into the Neurosurgeon on the 22nd of June. I have to have a new MRI of my cervical spine before my appt, then he will decide what order we will be doing the surgeries in. They are going to have to do at least 2 because of the severity of my neck, but my lumbar is what is causing my legs to go out from under me. So, from the sound of it,
I will begin my surgeries the 1st or 2nd week of July! Talk about slapping someone in the face!!!!! I was just starting to accept the outcome from the Neurologist, thinking I had some time to get mentalluy ready, but they put me on the emergency call list, so if they have a cancellation, I will be going sooner than later..Talk about a whirlwind!!! lol
New MRI's show I have 3 GOOD vertabrae. The rest are bulging, compressed, protruding or in one of the three spinal stenosis' in my back. One stenosis in my neck and two in my lower back. Fibromyalgia, cfs, degenerative bone disease, osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, HORRIBLE memory problems, panic attacks, depression, and muscle cramps that don't stop.
