Ouch…

Went to see the surgeon today to discuss my poorly back – and he says that apparently I can’t have surgery because it’s too risky and could make things worse.

So, in lieu of surgery, I’m going under general anaesthetic tomorrow morning and they’re sticking a whopping big needle in my spine to try to reduce the inflammation around my disc.

Firstly: ouch.

Secondly: an appointment for the very next day ten minutes after seeing the consultant? That’s what I call service!

If the injection doesn’t work, I’m screwed. If it does, I’m gonna be as happy as this bunny here:

    Good luck! (And, god forbid, should it not work, if there is one thing 20 years of dealing with doctors has taught me, it’s that it’s always worth asking for a second opinion)

    Aw look at its little tail! Good luck deary – last time I went under general I played a game with the nurses whereby they bet me chocolate I couldn’t reach zero if I counted back from ten. I reached 7… I’m crap.
