Well I am still alive!! and have an answer at last....

Its been several weeks, I have been very ill and in excruciating pain, some days I could not even move or get out of bed, something needed to be done, so the issue was forced upon our GP for me to go private, and after all the tests and MRI, it has been found that I have 6 prolapsed discs and 2 of them are really bad - so now I will have to take physio for 6 weeks, with my first appointment on the 15th of April, until then I am still in pain..... and if that does not improve, will need to go into surgery. Well, I am hoping it will work with the physio, as I have allergies to all the main pain killers as well as GA, its been a tough fight the last few months or must I say two years, as it all started when we moved to Cambridge - but at least now I know its not anything serious, and its not related to my breast tumour!

I am trying to stay positive, until things can get sorted out, I have not been able to do any stamping nor update my blog - since I can take limited pain killers, I am trying to work with the ones I can take, so the pain is still there, which makes me very immobile.

I have missed so much of my stamping stuff, that I am having withdrawal symptoms - just buying stuff like crazy!!

Well the Stampin-up mini catalogue is out, and there are some fab sets in there, as soon as I have my pain/mobility sorted out, I will hold a workshop to introduce the mini! interested in joining me, let me know by e-mail or simply leave a message on my blog! see you soon with my Easter projects!

Hi Germaine

Really please you got some answers at last and now you can get the help you need. It is so frustrating trying to get doctors to take you seriously.

Hope the physio works.
Hugs Anesha

So sorry to hear you have been ill, Germana. I can't imagine the pain you have had to endure. I am hoping you find some kind of Tx that works so you don't have to have surgery. Sending well wishes your way, friend.

OMG you sound like you've had a terrible time! Hope the physio helps and you can recover quickly.
Wishing you well, Sharon.

So glad to hear that the Dr's have found the cause of your pain, Germaine. It must be a great relief to know that something can be done. Have you tried a T.E.N.S. machine to control the pain? The best of luck with the physio.
