From what it looks like I might have a little arthritis in my spine (L5/S1) along w/ some disc blugging which is touching the nerves (which is causing the pain down my leg). The Nurse Practitioner said it looks like I will not need surgery! I’ll be starting w/ some PT and go from there. The doctor at the spine centre will be looking at the MRI just to double-check from what the tech wrote. I told the NP that I am willing to do anything (including acupuncture) and that I want to avoid surgery. I mentioned that I do yoga and walking, also ride my bike when I can (but currently can’t do any). She mentioned that they have a pool, so I’m hoping that I get to use it as part of my therapy. That be so awesome!!
I get to see my MRI next week at my followup. I can’t wait!! I hope I can get a copy of it. If so, I will sharing it.
In other news….
The strawberry yoghurt is definitely working. My face broke out a little last week ’cause of PMS, but it is nowhere as bad as has been in the past. At some point I do want to try an oatmeal wash.
We brought Dante to the vet today for blood work. Hopefully that will be the last time for him for awhile. We got two cans of special canned food for him. Hopefully he will like it.
