So, finally have all my test results in .... MRI report shows cervical disc degeneration, mild to mod forminal narrowing at c2/3, moderate fn at 4/5 and severe at 6/7. Also osteophytes in disc spaces impinging on anterior of spinal cord. ... my GP is referring me to spinal team at Sheffield for next steps etc.
I am not sure what my future holds .. the last 6 months have been madness. Diagnosed with Osteoarthritis in November last year, turned 50 in March and its been downhill from there!
My worry is work - I have a unique and sometimes serile job as sole housekeeper in a country house. It is like stepping back in time - think Downton Abbey! - seriously though, I am responsible for the upkeep of 12 bedrooms, 8 bathrooms and 6 general rooms. I clean the silver, iron big linen sheets, prepare meals and organise and host shooting parties in the winter months. My employer is very old fashioned and we have spoken about aids to help me in my daily tasks, but he isn't keen - I do have a perching stool but it stays out of sight in the housekeepers room. I am struggling with some tasks - the bed changes are the worst with multiple linen sheets and blankets (no duvets!)
Its a lovely place to work ... like stepping back in time, but I don't know whether its conducive to my health, especially with these latest results ....
