This is definitely a post that I didn't think I would be writing! Yesterday there was a big mess up with my appointment to see my surgeon about talking about treatment for my dural ectasia but now it turns out I won't be needing that appointment. After thinking that my pain has been caused by DE it now turns out that one of the screws in my back is either very close to a nerve or it is actually touching it. The only way to treat that is to have another operation to remove the screw so I'm being put on the waiting list next week and I should hopefully be having the operation by the end of the year, they can make you wait up to 18 weeks unfortunately.
I am of course over the moon that there is something they can do that will hopefully help get rid of my pain or at least help ease it. It's weird though because I'm more worried about having this operation, even though I've already had an operation before and this one will only be a small one. It's nice to finally be able to see the light at the end of the tunnel though.
School wise I definitely know now that I won't be able to return in September to Sixth Form because the chances of me having had the operation and being fully recovered by then are very slim. You can do your A Levels at any age though so I guess that isn't a massive deal!
Again as always I have to say thank you to you all, your continuous support overwhelms me and it makes a big difference!
Thanks for reading,
