I didn’t get the news I was hoping for yesterday.

My bilateral branch blocks did not work. My Pain Management doctor went over my x-rays and MRI’s with my Neurosurgeon, luckily they share the same office.

My Pain Management doctor told me there’s a good possibility of more spinal surgery, the the disc on C-3 has moved more than expected (it’s just above my fusion of C-4 through C-7).

My Neurosurgeon and Orthopedic doctor will be discussing my case next week. So I’m on pins and needles here!

The Pain Management doctor will have to skip Step Two and go to Step Three, but it’s too tight in my upper neck to get the leads in for the Spinal Cord Stimulator leads to get up there, so if I have surgery, he’s hoping the leads can be put in then.

I was not expecting this at all yesterday, just more stress added. My headaches have worsened and pain in neck also.
