I just got back from Philly today.
Spent 5 hours in the ER and then was discharged. Was told I could not be admitted because my inability to walk and losing all strength and major nerve damage was not life threatening.
Maybe so but it sure would require surgery!!!
Surgeon said he could no longer help me. (Why??) Said to look for second opinion from another neurosurgeon at another hospital.e is just washing his hands clean.
He is just washing his hands clean.
Then spent 3 hours with 2 neurologists. Was not given okay for surgery (discectomy) because he did not think my situation was severe enough.
I spend most all my days in bed lying on my side.
Will not anyone listen to me?
Spent night in hotel. Was going to go back to surgeon and beg for surgery or to another hospital’s ER and see if a neurosurgeon there might give me a second opinion and do surgery.
But then I just gave up and took the bus home in the morning.
I am giving up. My tombstone will read “He gave up.”
PLEASE, please pray for me a litle intercessory prayer tonight that in the AM I will go the right doctor and do the right thing.
Whether that means to stay right here or got on a 3 hur bus ride.
My entire legs are denervating so rapidly and I just cannot handle life much longer.
I promise to pray fervently for all who pray for me (and all posters and readers).
One year ago I was one of the happiest people I knew.
I really used to love life.
