Afternoon everyone, After waiting for the ambulance transport, I finally got to Gobowen Hospital after dropping people off at Wrexham Maelor Hospital. As you can image my stress levels were sky high by this time. I got there with minutes to spare so I calmed myself down.
I went in after about a 10 min wait (which was good for NHS). Then he showed me pictures of my spine on the computer, first time I ever since pictures of my spine. He showed me the damage to my L5/S1, L4/L5 and L3/4 and my trapped nerves that are causing my sciatica. He showed me my curve which isn't as bad as some people's that I seen. He explained about the discs between the vertebrates being of equal size and mine are more or less not there. It was amazing but I could of done with someone there with me as I'm hard of hearing so couldn't hear him properly.
Anyhow, he has suggest me having injections in my lower back, stronger painkillers (2 types, 1for during the day and 1 for night). and a bit of physio to try to see if they can untrap my nerves. He said surgery is a no no as my bones are rigid because I've suffered for so long and there a risk my spine could snap if they tried. He can't do the injections until after my blood test at the hospital on Monday (got problems with my blood not clotting).
In all, now I have someone who believes me after so many yrs of fighting to get something done. He's sending a letter to my doc and me with everything in. Gobowen Hospital is amazing, the changes to it and how there are shops, cafe and information services. ☺
