Well, finally got some good news from the doctor’s office today. I had him do another ultrasound of my back. He said that it looks much better than it did the first time he did an ultrasound. Good news!
However, I did try and get him to pin down if it was better than the last time. He really did a great job of evading that answer. I’m gonna let it go though. As long as it shows that it’s healing, that means that it CAN heal. I mean, that’s my biggest dilemma. For some reason, my body just doesn’t heal as well as other people.
I also wrote him two days ago in regards to my muscle taking so long to heal. I asked him about maybe, finally, trying to do more blood work outside if a CBC and a Chem 7. I thought maybe some kind of rheumatology blood work, perhaps a muscle biopsy, and even test for heavy metals. Who knows? Maybe all those years of riding my scooter to work behind people’s exhaust pipes did a number on me.
He referred me to someone else. However, this person is all the way in Mission Bay area, which is 20 minutes from my house. Considering I barely made it home from Marina Green the other day, that drive seems highly unlikely.
I debated not asking him, but then though, screw it. I asked him if he would place a phone call to the doctor for me and have a consult. Here’s the thing. I don’t want to drive ALL the way down there only to have the doc ask me to bend a couple of times and then suggest all the same stuff everyone else has. I want a different outcome, and if I’m not going to get one, I don’t want to put my back through the drive.
So there it is. A bit of good news. I’ll take it. It doesn’t mean my pain is going to be gone. It just means that if I can get this muscle to heal, then I will know more about what is causing the residual pain.
Oh, and one more thing. I did not take that apartment. It was entirely way too small for way, way too much money. I can’t even believe how much they were asking for it. I know my husband was thinking at least I would be able to walk around whenever I wanted, but still. It had to have been less than 400sq ft for $2850/month. I couldn’t even fit my bed into the bedroom. It would only fit in the family room.
Oh, well. Back to the drawing board.
