Hubby's back...

Well the week is over and another is soon starting & we are no further ahead! Last week alone hubby had 2 MRIs, Xray, appt with Family physician, appt with physiatrist, physiotherapy (PT) 3 changes to his medication regime & we aren't done yet.

I am happy to say the PT helped a little but hubby's pain is still HIGH!!! He's on some really strong pain killer & they are barely touching the pain. The Physiatrist is considering an epidural for pain relief (hello I had 3 babies without drugs & he's the one that might get the epidural)!

Tuesday is hopefully the last test to figure out what the heck is wrong with hubby. He is going for a bone scan which will take the better part of a day & it's basically to decide if "spots" on his pelvics are fat tissue or cancer. Have I mentioned I am grateful we are in the USA. I know having worked in the health care system in Canada not too long ago, what we have had done so far would have taken a heck of a lot longer than 10 days, not cost us as much (nearly nothing) but 10 days! We have been worried, stressed, not sleeping/eating well and I am grateful that its only 10 days! I can't imagine the stress on anyone going through any medical investigations in Canada!
