I went back to the dr on Tuesday to get my MRI results. My MRI showed some bone spurs and moderately severe right narrowing of the lateral recesses of my L4-L5 disk. The doctor said that we would probably treat... that with injections for pain. The MRI also showed a thoracic (chest area) spinal cord syrinx, which is a fluid pocket in the spinal cord, which is not supposed to be there. This was totally unexpected and he wasn't looking for it at all. In fact, he had never seen one in the thoracic spine. But he said it was fortunate that we found it, because it can create all kinds of problems. Fortunately, I haven't presented any of the symptoms that this can create, so maybe I don't have any spine damage yet.

Before he treats the lower back with injections, he wants me to get another MRI with contrast on the thoracic area . Then he is going to refer me to a neurosurgeon, because he is more of a extremities guy than a spine guy. But he told me this isn't something to go home and lose sleep over, so I'm trying not to.

Bottom line is that it will probably be another couple of weeks now before I get to see the neurosurgeon and find out what we are going to do about everything. Until then, hydrocodone is my best friend. On the bright side, I'm not having to take time off from work because of it. Except for MRI's of course. This will be my third one.
Sounds pretty serious to me. I was draggging my left leg because of a pain in my knee from one single bone spur. I could not walk a block. You can have as much pain from a little nerve pressure same as a pinched off nerve. That fluid pocket can effect anything in that area. Glad they caught that too.
I'm getting ready to have a Myelogram done on the disk I injured during rehab of my knee on the 1st of the month. I can't have a MRI because of the metal in my back. Not looking forward to it because that procedure hurts a lot, not to mention you get quite a few xrays while they try and position the needle to put the dye in the disk. Glad you're still active while taking that hydrocodone because all it does for me is bring on constipation. Hope you don't have to wait too long to have something done.

I can think of some grateful people because you are alive. I'm quite familiar with Mr. Depression, it's very difficult to ignore him all the time.

I've always tried to be a voice of reason, but that doesn't mean I've succeeded. Strength? I don't think so. I sure don't have much of that. If I thought I was weak while I was overseas, I didn't know what weak was. Now I can't even stand up for more than a few minutes at a time. I just find myself thinking that when this chemo is finished, I'll either be cured, or I'll find out I'm not going to be cured. If I can't be cured, there's not much I can do about it. If I am, then I hope to be able to go back to my job and finish what I started. I know that's not really my life over there, but this feels even less like my life. This is just an interruption that I want to be over with.

I think he's taken up permanent residence in my head. He's sure gotten the better of me these days.

There are some who'd beg to differ with you, and I'm one of them at times.

I think that reason is to show people what real strength is. As much as you try to deny it, it shows through anyways. And that, my dear, can show other people that they too can keep going, no matter what life throws at them. Sometimes, I get to feeling completely overwhelmed with general "life" stuff (cars breaking, work being stupid, financial stress, etc). Then I come read this thread, and you show me what real strength is, and it keeps me going; I want to thank you for that.

And listen to Skidoo; he knows what he's talking about!

I just got some bad news about Skidoo, he's had another stroke. This was posted on his sister-in-law's FB page a bit ago..

"I AM ASKING FOR PRAYERS FOR MY BROTHER-N-LAW. HE HAS HAD ANOTHER STROKE THIS MORNING AND AS OF RIGHT NOW THINGS DON'T LOOK VERY GOOD. SO PLEASE ASK GOD TO HELP HIM RECOVER.

And here's the message she sent to me...

"LONE UPDATE.....HE HASN'T WOKE UP YET BUT WHEN I GOT UP THERE I STARTED I STARTED PESTERING HIM TO WAKE UP AND HE DID OPEN HIS EYES BUT ONLY FOR A FEW SECONDS. HE IS MOVING BOTH LEGS AND BOTH ARMS. HE JUST WON'T WAKE UP YET. THE BLEED IN THE BRAIN IS ON THE RIGHT SIDE THIS TIME. THIS STROKE CAME OUT OF NOWHERE. THANK GOD HIS SISTER WAS THERE TO CALL 911 AND GET HIM TO THE HOSPITAL. I'LL TALK TO YOU TOMORROW AFTER I GET BACK FROM HOSPITAL AND GIVE YOU AN UPDATE"


Thankfully his sister was there to get him help right away, but this one sounds bad. Please send up a serious ration of prayers for him. He's a really sweet guy and a great friend.
