Anyone have Cervical Stenosis and Scleroderma?

31 posts in this topic

Oh I am sorry JBG, that type of surgery sounds very daunting as does the recovery period. I hope you eventually get some relief as a result.

 

Take care and keep us informed please.

Hi JBG,

 

I'm sorry your surgery will be more involved but I'm glad they are taking your swallowing issues seriously, too, or else it would have made a bad situation even worse. I hope all goes well for your surgery, and am sending some warm hugs your way.

My word, we do collect doctor's, don't we? :P In August I got to add an orthopedic surgeon (shoulder), vascular surgeon, and today (not admitting it is already the first of September), orthopedic surgeon (cervical spine). Thoracic Outlet Syndrome has been confirmed, problems with the disks C4 to C7 confirmed and although the results from the special CT aren't in (only one doctor in the regions 'reads' those), the vascular guy wants to see me again in about 10 days. Still have to have the follow-up with the shoulder guy.

 

I think my husband may suspect I am seeing another man. Honey, says I, it's men, plural. :blush:

My goodness, Jeannie. You are collecting doctors at a rapid pace! I sure hope they come up with something helpful. Here's lots of warm hugs to tide you over.

Thanks Shelley, me too. Actually what I am hoping is that what ever they do will make me taller! :lol:

 

After having the doctor that was present for the venogram say the veins were okay, I was really disappointed that was only the case on one side. I guess that's why they usually don't give you any results on the day of the test. Oh well, could be a lot worse!
