Emory surgeon's RN called to say the doctor reviewed my last MRI (he ordered late December). And he says I do need surgery again on my neck, due to the pseudoarthroses (non healed fusions) & the many multiple pseudomeningoceles (little ballooned pockets of CSF), from C2- to T2-4. She said it would be a very extensive surgery down my back, with a long hard recovery.
I explained the necessity of full hip rplc in 2 wk & she said for me to give them a call when I have fully recovered, which she said will likely be months away. She said the doctor wants a consult to discuss what he found on the MRI. I laughed sarcastically and said I'd had hip surgery last May that never healed. I told her I will be in touch in a few months.
It was in no way what we expected to hear from that doctor (at the appt in Dec he stated the pseudoarthroses lone was not a reason for further surgery)! From what I've found out the pseudomeningoceles can come from surgery, injections or form spontaneously, and they can cause mild to severe physical & neurological problems.
I cannot seem to get a break & I'm just too tired to deal with anymore. Somebody please push the rewind button quick. Better yet, I need a genie in a bottle 🧞♀️ for 3 wishes...1-to be young again, 2-to be healthy again, & 3-to wish for unlimited wishes!
Poof! Oh crap, I just woke up ... such is life 😔 I hope the rest of you are having a better start to the week, hugs love & prayers for all! 💞❤🙏🌷
