Thanks so much. I am feeling much better now. As far as seeing a surgeon... I was given a few weeks to "think about if you are ready". We are supposed to "talk about the possibility" when I go back. ALso, one of my other doctors is going to call next week and "Talk about your progression and the changes in your X rays". So...
I guess I never thought I was a candidate. I know I lost alot of height, 4inches. I know I am progressing at a sickening rate and need new x rays as we speak because now my hip is rotating towards the rear... I guess I am scared, and worried. Most frightened about cost. Last year my out of pocket cost was 22K. And the doctors only charged me for "materials" and nothing more.
...I suppose the best course of action is to the peices fall where they may. I cant change my progression. I cant deny that mobility is becomming increasingly diffacult. The pain scale is re-defined and changing every few weeks. It is what it is. I suppose at some point through all this it would be nice to see if someone truly can help me. What I would need to do to gain access to the help.
Thank so much for being with me and supporting me. It means alot.
