HI there . '
well since my post of a few days ago , re my husband and his prolapsed discs , we have seen the Physio today and hes referring us onto a spinal surgeon. ( We live in greater manchester and so are being reffered to Salford Royal , which for our area is the back specialist centre)
Basically after 5 weeks of physio that has done little in the way of relieveing his symptoms and pain they have decided he needs surgery.
I am not an expert at all , but it seems really silly to me that an MRI scan took so long . It confirmed and prooved that the problem was much more severe than first thought , why dont they do the MRIs first to actually see for real whats going on? Yes I know thay have to see if the problem heals on its own , but honestly surely they know just how severe someone is? Its beyond me that it can take so long , reading here we arent that bad in the wait , even though its been 5 months of a job .
We now of course have to wait for the appointment to come thru which can take anywhere between 4 and 8 weeks we have been told.
And ......... then another wait to get some resolve and actual treatment , it seems endless. Meanwhile my poor husband is in a lot of pain >
ONce again I find myself angry on his behalf , he bless him is just in so much pain its all he can think about. He has enough to just get thru another day.
Im sure im not alone in the frustration of waiting .
Thank you to those of you who have been concerned and sent me messages of support , it means so much to know that people out there are listening and offereing their support.
SO for now its a watch this space , im sure ill be here again to vent !!
