Have had 2 sets spinal shots of steroids' to try and relieve pinched nerve in L-4&5. Has definitely been distracting. Still unable to lift right toes and my foot flops a little when I walk but making progress.
Coco and I have also been fostering a 5 month old Jack Russell Terrier with some medical issues. She has been with us 10 days so far and I have taught her to sit and shake. I am now working on STAY! much more challenging command concept to get an animal to understand but essential for her to know.
The above has kept me completely distracted from thinking about my cancer and other issues.
Not sure who is benefiting more "Jackie" or Me. 😎
Is the "pinched nerve in L-4&5." related to the prostate cancer?
I don't think so unless from bone loss
An Mri confirmed that my husband had bone mets compromising his spinal cord. He just finished 10 days of radiation to lumbar and thoracic areas. The radiation has helped his pain to a level to where he can finally do some walking. Good luck to you! Love your little foster pup. We have fostered many dogs in the past!
