I had my doctor appointment today about my back. He said that there definitely looks like there is something wrong with the lumbar region. Ya think? LOL I told him all my symptoms and he felt around and I whimpered appropriately I guess and he tried to get me to bend and I couldnt and all that good jazz. We went over why I was asking for the CT instead of the MRI and he just looked at me like I was nuts but I stood my ground. They are scheduling the CT. One thing that really irked me thought, they wanted to do some procedure where they insert a nerve block into my spine before they even do the CT. I said no. I mean hello? We dont know what is wrong with my spine, what if they go in and hit something they shouldnt that they would know about after the CT? nah. I dont know that I am gonna let them do any procedures anyway. They did one earlier and it didnt work and in fact made me hurt worse. I may take the CT scans to my ortho and see what he thinks. Plus the docs put me on MORE pain medications! They kept me on my long acting morning and night medications but added two doses of fast release 15 mg morphine to use during the day as needed. Good lord above...if I take all that, I wont be awake!
