So LJ has games like FB now? Hmmm...

So Tues am while heading into the shower, I had an issue with my upper back. Those that know me know that I have degenerative disc disease and that I have had multiple surgeries/procedures on my lower back. The past couple years, I have been experiencing greater discomfort with my upper/middle back. Tuesday morning, it felt like someone had hit me right between the shoulder blades with a sledgehammer.

I went to work because of a Very Important Meeting I needed to attend but left when the meeting concluded. Wed I could not turn to drive, so I stayed home. Thurs I made it to work but was racked with spasms all day. Thank goodness it was a slow day. I have muscle relaxers, but because my job is critical to patient care, I won't take them while working, even if the doc says to. I just can't. It is probably the ONLY work ethic I have, but the only thing I will take for pain/spasms while handling patient reults is a couple advil.

Finally got into doc yesterday and at that point it was mostly some spasms and little pain. Til she actually touched my back and left ribcage. Holy Shit!! I actually broke out in a sweat. No wonder my blood pressure was high. The body knows when we are in pain even when we don't recognize it. She is such a good doc tho. She wanted to make sure it wasn't actually a heart attack (do YOU know the signs/symptoms of a heart attack in women? You should!!)or pleurisy. Once we were assured it was muscular, she asked if I wanted a referral to a plastic surgery cause, and I quote, "Your boobs are a size ZZZZ and they need to go!"

I am so ready for this! My girls went from a perfectly manageable 38C to a 46DDD in 5 years. Both my mother and my sister have had the same issue and they each had successful reductions. So I am gonna start researching plastic surgeons and hope to have my 38C's back sometime this summer. It will be SO nice to fit in my clothes again. Cause really, more than a handful is too much!
