Dismal MRI Results. Arg.
So last Wednesday I FINALLY got the MRI, albeit an "open" MRI so that I stopped having panic attacks. I have an appointment to see a specialist tomorrow morning and my doctor STILL hasn't returned any of my phone calls asking for the results. I called maybe 20 times - I think the receptionist wants to kick me in my female parts. I have to go in tomorrow with XRAY and MRI stuff in my hands, so I had also called the diagnostic place and put in an order for the CDs. Because my doc didn't call with a summary and tell me what is wrong with me in ENGLISH, I had to read the report myself. Yeah, so it says "Blah blah blah, bulging blah blah severe, blah blah L4, L5 and S1 with mild to moderate blah. I *think* I have deciphered it to mean I have a herniated disc or two with some arthritis. Not good - the report was scary. So I will have to find out the details tomorrow. I think everyone has it out for me to just continue to be in massive pain. Good times.
