Well, guys. I'm in a rather crabby mood, so today's post will be short.Why, you ask? Here's everything in a nutshell:
- Epidural wore off
- Butt and back pain returned
- Numb foot too
- Saw neurosurgeon
- Having surgery
- October 29th
I guess I should also confess that I'm actually looking forward to the laminectomy in a weird sort of way, since all of my doctors, Dr. Young Guy included, think that this surgery has a high success rate for patients with my symptoms. And I would really, really, like for these symptoms to go away.
This doesn't diminish the crabby factor much since it also involves going through some rather significant surgery and recovery time. Not to mention the owie factor involved in all of this.
Complicating things even more, my usual coping mechanism for dealing with unpleasantness has been forcibly removed from my skill set: Butterfinger blizzards and all things dairy make me nauseous and have erm.....rather busy intestines. And mango margaritas make me feel dizzy and cold and clammy, as does all alcohol lately.
Wake me up in a couple months when it's all over. I'm going to bed.
