Good friday Morning to all of my friend here. I hope everyone is doing well. This week has been much better than last week. Thank you for all the thoughts and prayers for my wife she is feeling much better. She has her follow up visit with the doctor today. She seems to be well on the way to recovering.
I had my MRI on tuesday. The good news is the spot in my spinal cord has not changed any. Still the same size and in the same location. No other new spots showed up. The doc refused to comment on much of the brain MRI other then to say it was clear. He did not want to comment any further because he did not know what the neuro-opthomologist was looking for. That appointment will be monday morning. That means that monday will be a long day.
We did make some changes to my medication. We upped the lyrica to 200mg/day, stay on neurotin 3600mg/day and get off the cymbalta. I requested that we drop the cymbalta. I do not like the way I feel on it. I will go back to the effexor 150mg/day. We are going to try to go down on the neurotin. it will be a slow process. I am not a big pill taker. However, when I hurt I want something that will knock it down as soon as possible.
Have a great weekend everyone, Prayers and wishes to everyone,
