Another day, Another MRI

Well ground hog day is over! I’m actually going somewhere and it’s not my usual department at the hospital.

Today I get the wholehearted excitement of going to hospital for an MRI. My back is still bad. To the point I can’t breathe in without it hurting. I can’t sleep because it wakes me everytime I move. And wait for it. It’s even stopped me in my tracks with my London to Paris cycling training – and anyone who knows me well will know I don’t stop something like that without reason. But I went on Sunday and was definitely worse by Monday. Whether it’s because of the cycling or despite it, I’m not sure but I can’t risk it getting worse.

So thankfully my MRI appointment came through and I’m hoping they’ll either tell me what it is, tell me it’s muscular and to stop moaning, or worst scenario, tell me they can’t see anything (leaving me in a position of what do I do now). I’m on high dose cocodamol and pregablin already so upping the painkillers isn’t much of an option….although diazepam did help a little last time 🤔.

Thankfully my consultant is also doing the London to Paris for a different charity (traitor!😉) so he’ll know how important this is to me and will hopefully help me get sorted. Not that I’ve seen him since September!

Anyway, that’s it for today. Wish me luck. Desperate to get back out on the bike by the weekend!

About Deb Gascoyne

I am wife of one, mother of two (& a dog!) and a person in my own right😊. I have used my diagnosis of myeloma to allow me to focus on what I CAN achieve and not what I can't. My blog is a way of me spilling is for me more than you I'm afraid. But if it helps you along the way, that is an absolute bonus for me :-) Diagnosed in 2009 with smouldering myeloma, I started treatment in 2010 and had a SCT in 2011. I’ve was on maintenance until November 2018 but my figures went up so officially relapsed. I have been on dara since 2019 and had my second transplant in September 2020. Still on dara and keeping fingers crossed.
