Good luck with the hernia repair, Greg.

I'll be seeing my doctor next month, but have another issue going on for which I have to have an ultrasound/biopsy.  But I'll be making another appointment after that, probably around the end of next month, and will further discuss this issue.  If my doctor says anything about this "balance" physical therapy, I may ask him exactly what that entails so I can decide if I believe it's pertinent.  Sometimes I think doctors refer to physical therapy because they have no clue about what to do.  And maybe there's nothing to do. 

Yes, if we all discuss with our doctors, maybe with a mixed bag of results, we can put something together, or some such.

I'm the one who drools and has weak knees, literally. My pillowcases are a sight by wash day.

I didn't have any cranberry juice so I'm drinking my zin straight up....ah...life is temporarily good.



Your care home bottles it,s own classy.

Greg since investing in the most incredibly expensive walking Poles , I have managed to stay upright and out off the bone clinic , off course walking the streets off Ole London town using hi-tech Norwegian speed walking implements takes a certain amount off pratice to pull off with total indifference . Plus one off the un foreseen benefits is mugging threats have dropped to Zero .

My doctor doesn't seem to feel any of this is a result of neuropathy.  Generally, my issues don't happen often enough as neuropathy occurs on a somewhat frequent basis. 

He is going to address this with my cardiologist as he thinks that's where the issue might be.  We'll explore additional testing if necessary.  He wasn't even aware how often I have these episodes.  I've had numerous blood pressure issues where it suddenly dropped, but that was mostly in the past.  When my blood pressure would suddenly drop, I usually blacked out for a moment and got dizzy before falling.  It could simply be less sever than before.

He also immediately ordered an exam with Dr. Robertson to check this hernia as he feels it needs corrected immediately.  I usually get embarrassed when a doctor examines my privates but it actually was weirdly nice....kinda like some 80's porn.  I wonder if the exam didn't last a tad too long simply because I'm totally "clean" down there.  um, I mean shaved.  :)

Also, I was given a letter upon signing in.  It read that my doctor was no longer going to see patients as their GP.  My heart sank to my knees as I love this doctor and the fact that he's my pcp as well my ID doctor.  Luckily for me, he will continue with me.  Partly because there are ID doctors in my local area and he remembers the difficulties we had with my previous GP and sharing information.
