Been a bit of a rush for the last month - not a lot of rest and recuperation. Mainly rushing from one thing to another with a modicum of pain and discomfort.
Got to the doctor for the results of the MRI today and confirmation that it is a slipped disc and some other bits of problem that means that he is sending me to a specialist - that may be a fair wait of course....
"Discovertebral degenerative changes throughout the lumbar region, most marked at the L2-3 and L5-S1 levels where there are endplate changes and the discs are narrowed.
At the L4-5 level, there is a broad based posterior disc bulge, which together with osteoarthritis and hypertrophied facet joints is causing a moderate canal stenosis, further excaerbated by the presence of a joint ganglion encroaching on the canal from the right side.
There may be some compormise of the cauda equina at this level.
No other potential neurosurgical target has been shown"
Whatever that means ...
In other news - it seems my camera was not in focus for much of the weekend - so many of my photos are not up to scratch...
However - Pete Scott managed to get the photos I did not manage
