2020 – 83 – cervical stenosis
Since my last blog a month ago (2020 – 69), things have changed, yet again. With some experimentation, I’ve now got a routine which not only isn’t aggravating the problem but has reduced the pain, so I’m off pain killers. I’ve got a great Iyenger yoga book which has different routines for different medical condititions – it’s working.
So, I had a telephone conference today with one of the neurology team. We both agreed to monitor the situation -so no operation – hurrah! Another consult in 6 months.
I am sure some of this pain – especially in my hands – is not caused by the cervical stenosis. I need an X-ray or a scan of my hands. I’m not sure how long that will take. Still no GP’s coming into the Prison.
I will soldier on nonetheless.
Behappy, be safe and be kind.
