Ok, I was back to the hospital on Thursday for my monthly bone strenghener and check-up. Over the past few weeks I have been working with the hospice home team on pain management as I have darting pain down my left leg again and discomfort in my lower back. Nothing serious but enough to know it's there. The nurse and physio have been working on trying to relieve these symptoms but figure something is trapping a nerve. The decision in Limerick is to investigate it with an MRI and try and find what is causing the issue. I am happy as I would like to get to the route of the problem. It could be about a month before I get an appointment but we'll see what happens. She seems to think that it possibly relates to the disc that was protruding last year. Fingers crossed that it is nothing more than that.
