since i have all of these positive responses from nurses, i am certainly going to find one. mine must have been an isolated incident.
today i went to the surgeon who told me that the mri was worse than the xray films and surgery was out of the question for me. he feels that my problems are muscular although he found a great deal of degenerative arthritis in C3-6 with 5-6 being the worst, which not incidentally is just where my pain is. i am to continue with physical therapy and he is sending me back to work on monday, sedentary duty, 4 hour shifts.
the doc that referred me to the surgeon told my employer i would be off for the next month. that was two days ago. this guy sends me back monday.
these are workers comp docs same practice but the one i saw today is a surgeon.
i am happy about going back to work. ive been bored to death and kinda afraid id lose some of the steam i was working on building. i am however
afraid that holding my head up straight for four hours at a time is going to cause excruciating pain...like it does now. and then my friends what will i do? get a third opinion?
i just wanna be out of pain and be well again.
