I never thought that I would get so frustrated with having to stay home all the time (except for office). I used to be super super lazy and was always home. But after working f/t and p/t jobs for nearly 3 yrs, being stuck at home is hard.
Still two weeks until my MRI that will hopefully give doctors the info needed for a treatment plan for this 1/2" mass on my spine that is pressing on my spinal cord.
I keep thinking that I need to push myself hard to keep leg muscles working or rebuild my stamina. But hubby reminded me the other day that I don't have a pulled muscle or other injury, so I can't do that. I have a mass pressing on and compromising my spinal cord! We do not know if this thing will rupture or how fast its growing. If it is the fluid filled cyst they think it is caused by my body producing too much fluid to lubricate my degenerated discs....so will pushing too hard aggravate the aged parts and cause the cyst to grow more or can it rupture? The only other symptoms that I do not have, and hopefully will not get, are changes or loss of bladder or bowel control. It seems from the list that I have all the other symptoms at this time.
So I have to try and be patient and hopeful.
