Wow - what a year. August - Trigeminal Neuralgia, with excruciating pain. November - Brain surgery with Micro Vascular Decompression of the Trigeminal Nerve. Three weeks off of work. Great recovery, no more pain. Then late January passed right kidney stone (I believe the stones were caused by the Rx I was taking for the Trigeminal Neuralgia - haven't had one for 25 years), with more excruciating pain. and x-rays showing another in the left kidney a growing. Scheduled last Friday for Lithotripsy, took day off, terrible laxative the day before. Got a call in the am that the Lithotripsy machine was broken, so rescheduled for today, more terrible laxative yesterday, and scheduled at noon today. Can't eat a thing since yesterday noon, no drinks since midnight.
They will knock me out, aim low frequency sound waves at the kidney stone and hopefully blast it to smithereens! Hope their aim is good.
Anyway, it has put a crimp in my riding. I hope to get this all done with and be WELL for a while!!
Thanks for listening!!
Hope someone has a good ride today. Right now we have ice, freezing and snow. Not exactly great riding weather.
