I finally have my new Ortho apt tomorrow and hope to find out some information on the bulging disc that isn't supposed to be there. I'm thinking they will find what many of you suggested and tell me that it is a bone growth rather than a disc bulge. I just can't imagine a less accurate MRI result than the ones I received from this hospital. I have been instructed to bring the MRI disc and the disc from the x-rays. I sure hope this gives me some good news (but I'm not really sure what that is right now).
On another subject, I received the disc from SSD on my case. They listed three positions that I could do....I have NEVER even heard of any of the jobs. They were all related to working somehow with soldering something to lightbulbs or to electronic boards like computers. They say I can't work with co-workers or with the public and that I can't do anything that isn't completely sedentary. Anybody ever heard of a geeterer? That's one of the jobs they suggested for me. Goodness knows we don't exactly have any geeter factories around here. SSD is getting more interesting every time I have some contact with them. I'll take the disc to the "potential" representative as soon as I can to see if she will "take" my case. Apparently she has to review the medical information on file before she decides to take a case. We shall see.....perhaps the info from tomorrow will help with the decision on the case.
All my best to each of you!
