I phones the pain clinic to speak to Donna who is usually keen to talk to me. She told the receptionist to phone me and tell me to wait till Monday.

I phoned my surgeon's secretary who said it as just a routine appointment.

I am in two minds not to go to either as I can't see them being able to do anything ... Certainly no insertin anything into my spine.

I am so bloody depressed

I know your hopes were set up. Disappointment is understandable. Please keep your appointments. If not now; something may arise in the future to change the current status.

Whatever the issues that currently are making you not a good candidate at this time; may be for the better. The surgeon may feel you have issues that the SCS would either not work or possibly be more difficult to implant. But stay in touch with your doctors. Again, something may arise in the future to change the currrent status.
Go to your appointments.....pleassseeeeeee !!!!!


Praying,

Gerry

Hi Saffy!

Thank you so much for the updates. I agree wholeheartedly with Ger. Please keep your appointments. Sounds like you've got good medical care and they are checkin every nook and crevice to make sure you don't have anything 'mysterious' going on. No growths, YAY!

I'm sure alot of us can totally relate to the 'pride' issue.
I remember one Dr (older man) came in the room to give me a breast exam. Thank God the nurse was with him. At first he just stood in the doorway (barely even closing the door! ) and said, "Well, the first thing I always do when giving breast exams is stand at a distance and get an overall 'view'. MWAHHHH?!! So, there I sit, bits hangin out, the air was SO thick with 'awkwardness' couldn't hardly breathe.
That was actually creepy

I won't go into the other ones....but yeah, I sure know the feeling of being a butt-neked PIN CUSHION!

You're always in my prayers, Karen, especially about the depression bit.

Caring Always,
Rae

Hello me ducks, well tomorrow's the day when I see my Pain Specialist who is also an Aneathatist (however you spell it). Apparently he wanted to see me because he is leaving the Pain Clinic to concentrate on other things.

The appointment with the surgeon is the 28th of this month ... so not long to wait either.

I feel really sick with nerves ... they were going to look into that thing where they drill a hole in your head and get to the part of the brain that works the sciatic nerve I suppose ... I did ask the surgeon at the time, when he was telling me why he couldn't possibly get anything into my back because of all the scarring .. and he did say, "that is a possibility".

I'm trying to keep those tummy bubbles at bay .. but doesn't stress like this, on top of pain, make you tired?

I am so, so tired all the time. I could stay in bed all day dozing on and off and have to force myself to get up .. then invariably am so tired, go back to bed.

It's nights I find hard, as it's the only time I see Mike really and he's back from work at 7 and I'm in bed at 8.30.

Ah well .. I will let you know how I get on tomorrow one way or another ...

If they say they can't do anything, I'm booking a bloody holiday!
