Update on my Noggin and related body parts...  
Went to see the neurosurgeon today. Not sure what kind of news I have. Whn he looked at the MRI films of my neck he asked meif I had been in an accident or had experienced any other trauma. I told him that I hadn't. He went over the the films with me and pointed to the important areas and centered on an area pretty close to the base of my skull where the spinal cord seems to almost disappear. Then he did did ome tests on my hands and informed me that my right hand showed some hint of a disorder. The real fun part was when he told me that... "I've been in Neurology for 30 years and I've never seen anything quite like what you have".

So I have to go on the 18th for another series of tests, outpatient (thankfully), and then see the neurosurgeon again on March 10th. I see my Neurologist on March 17th. LOL...what a mess, eh?

LOL...yeah...I mean, what is my response to that? Then he keeps telling me not to be concerned, but following it up with, 'we need to study this further'. Ummm...okay.

Ah, have you been using your right
hand a lot lately? :)
But seriously, are you still getting
those headaches? Good healing vibes
are on their way.
Mark: comic oops puppyboywondermark on February 8th, 2008 02:22 pm (UTC)
LOL! Using it too much, Ed! There always seems to be a bit of pressure or something there, but my neurologist has helped...so has prayer!
Jase: Classic Loveslavetopassion on February 8th, 2008 12:45 am (UTC)
I'm so glad someone seems to be doing something. You should go back to that other neurologist and tell him. grrr.
That headache doctor was smart!

I'm hoping for a total fix.

~smooches~ love you, daddy man!
Mark: gay kiss classicboywondermark on February 8th, 2008 02:24 pm (UTC)
I had totally forgotten him...isn't that funny?
You give me the fix I need, baby boy! Love you muchly!! :)
Sam: quest...thingwolfsnc on February 8th, 2008 12:46 am (UTC)
I hope that those tests bring good news and you not getting anymore headaches babe! *loves* Better yet, I'm hoping that the hurts and...whatever's wrong with your hand...*ahem* sonotcommentingonthatrightnow....just goes away, yay for me getting back on track! Yes, they both just go away, and you don't have to fool with those nasty doctors evar again!
Mark: BILL and TED strangethingscircleKboywondermark on February 8th, 2008 02:28 pm (UTC)
LOL...The hand thing is something only he can see, Samma...I'm not having any trouble with my hand! The trouble in my neck looks scary to me, but I'm no doctor...I don't know what I'm looking at, y'know? Just kind of sucky to hear a neurosurgeon say he's never seen anything like this in 30 years! LOL!
Milambermilamberrex on February 8th, 2008 01:27 am (UTC)
you will be in my thoughts and prayers, babe.
Mark: angel rainbowboywondermark on February 8th, 2008 02:29 pm (UTC)
Thanks, Rex! You're a sweetheart.
turtleinashell on February 8th, 2008 01:50 am (UTC)
hmm... I'm always intrigued by things like that. That could well cause headaches and other problems, I would think.Keeping my fingers crossed for you. *hugs*
Mark: Calvin Hobbes Hugboywondermark on February 8th, 2008 02:30 pm (UTC)
Thanks, Paul! Cross everything possible, hon! :b
Su: tootralphiere on February 8th, 2008 02:22 am (UTC)
WAAAHHH!! *flails* Oh sweets, how frustrating!! I hope they find out what's going on soon *hugs you tight*

Of course the neurosurgeon hadn't seen anything like that before, you ARE one of a kind! ^_^
Mark: comic tramp lady noodlekissboywondermark on February 8th, 2008 02:34 pm (UTC)
It's odd...they see all of this stuff but don't want to commit to anything yet. Just gonna send me for more tests. Now it's a bone scan thingy and another type of X-ray scan thingy of the area that is supposed to show it in much more detail with me moving in different ways.

I think if you didn't have any spine you would notice by now, like you'd be a jellyfish or something. It does all sound very strange.

I guess being a sexy crime-fighting BoyWonder has taken its toll on you. You'll have to cut back your activities - down to just hot gay sex. And rescuing me and Jase from chatrooms. ;-)
Mark: comic robin tim drakeboywondermark on February 8th, 2008 02:40 pm (UTC)
If I have to limit myself to just those two activities, I promise to give them my all...plenty of gusto!

oy vey, you never want to hear they haven't seen anything like this before. I'll be praying for you, though, Mark. I hope everything turns out okay.
Mark: comic Spaceman Spiffboywondermark on February 8th, 2008 07:23 pm (UTC)
Thanks for the prayers, Reese! Yeah...Ya kinda stand there like well, like Pinky, from Pinky and the Brain...LOL...when they tell you something like that. I mean, what do you say?

Awww, poor handsome lad.

Mmmmm...wait, do I remember something about you going to an amusement park with the kids a while back? Did you ride any rides that might have shaken something loose?
Mark: puppie upsidedown smileboywondermark on February 8th, 2008 07:26 pm (UTC)
LOL...I've had something shaken loose since I was born, Clay! I really don't know what could have cause something like I saw in the MRI film.
