I finally got the results of my MRI and CATscan. First, the good news: I don’t have a brain tumor. Yay! It’s always nice to know that. Now, the other good news: I have 2 herniated discs in my neck, a frontal protruding disc which is causing my swallowing problems and, most likely, the extreme pain I’ve been under these last five weeks, and degenerative disc disease, which to me just says ‘Sorry, honey, you’re getting old.’ This is all good news, because it means at least we know what it is and we can now go about fixing it. I’ve been fighting this pain on again off again for more than a decade. I am so ready for it to be over. I have been referred to a neurosurgeon and I’ll let you know what kind of surgery will be scheduled and when.
MRI and CATscan reports are in!
