  • Mood:

Back from the spinal guy

Another 'inconclusive' scan. Since as he says there's nothing obvious right now to do surgery on, he's - well, he probably isn't washing his hands of me, but it kind of feels a bit like it. So I'm sticking with Dr Walker, who'll be trying facet joint injections next time I percolate up through the waiting list.

Maybe I'm in a much better mood than last time (and perhaps it's just that this time he didn't do that sciatic stretch test on me, so I didn't end up whimpering), but I actually got on a lot better with him today. He even said "From this scan I honestly can't see why you should be hurting as badly as you are" - not "Nothing there, you have to be faking". He was very gung-ho about the Back To Life programme, pointed out that it might help get the muscle spasms under control, and wished me a speedy recovery.

To celebrate, I went to the library, then to the market and bought onions, bananas and other things that some of you would go "Ew gross!" at me if I mentioned them, so I shan't. They're cheap, nutritious, and tasty, that's all I care about. Unfortunately I've now realised that I probably walked further and carried more than I sensibly should have, so it's definitely time to lie down and drug.

Back later!
