My trip to the doctors today was to discuss his letter saying my condition was normal. When I was called in he smiled and said gosh that looks like painful work. I said I have your text sayng test 1 was normal. Yes thats the blood test. Nothing showed up on that he said . Next I said I have your letter saying spinal xray normal.
I said sorry its not normal to spend nearly 2 months crawling about like a cripple on sticks. So what do you mean NORMAL.
He explained that Normal for a man of my age. almost 80. because its common for wear and tear to take place.
So I have curvature of the spine which has reduced my height aprox 2 inches. But most of all the lumber region has deteriorated as the discs have worn away. and the bones are grinding together.. So the upshot is I am now to have an MRI scan and a referal to a pain clinic.
where they will inject a stabilizer into my spine. A tube of mastic. (joking ) that should stop the movement and reduce the pain. I must wait now about 2 to 3 weeks.
