Went to the hospital Tuesday as the pain went through the roof.
Poked, prodded, x-ray, two CAT scans and an MRI
Cancer in one lung ... and then the bad news.
Cancer on my vertebraes. Eating into the bone surfaces and pushing against the spinal cord.
They removed the mass. Had to remove damaged bone in a number of places so that rods and plates could be added to strengthen the spine.
They were monitoring spinal signals.they lost them.
I am unable to feel my legs, feet, am unable to walk. They said it could come back in 72 hours but they didn't seem real positive.
There are more smaller spots on the spine and the lung of course but if the legs don't come I don't see the point of further treatment.
It's been a good run.
I am so sorry to read this Greg. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. I sure hope you get the feeling back in your legs so you can continue to fight the nasty cancer.
I can't even find the words to type. I just want to give you a really long hug, Gwalk.
I'm sorry to hear this, Greg, but please don't give up hope. Sometimes our bodies can do things that are seemingly miraculous.
I hope that your tomorrow is a better day.
Some possible improvement. If I look at my foot and think of moving my toes, they move. No control, no feedback and very tiring.
Still, it's something.
