sigh

The doctor at the spine centre is saying I’m a surgical candidate.  It seems that I have severe arthritis in my spine (Degenrative Disc Disease).  I refuse to have surgery, so I am looking into options.  If I can get the pain and uncomfortableness down to something that I can live with then I’ll be happy.  This does not explain the numb/tingling all over my body.  When I see the new doctor that’s taking over at the centre I will ask him about that.  They are hanging onto my MRI until I see the new doctor (which will be in a few weeks).

      Fusing my bones together. The nurse also said something about scrapping away some of the bone around my spine. I don’t like the idea of either one.
