An Unplanned "Wasta"

In relation to my last entry about MOE*, I found a solution that should keep me away from that aggravating task.

Last year I had an injury in both hands. I went to a lot of doctors but all they did was recommending various pain killers (pills, waxes, wrist support gloves...etc.) but none did me any good and the injury kept getting worse until I had to take several cortisone shots to cure it.

Before that I was asked to do MRI to stand on what could be the problem. Oddly enough, I was diagnosed with something else before they found out that what I had is nothing but a common tendon syndrome called "DeQuervain's Tenosynovitis"*; the MRI report stated the following...


Report observation:-
  • There's reduced T2 signal intensity of C3/C4 disc suggestive of early degenerative changes.
  • There's subtle disc osteophyte complex at C3/C4 indenting the anterior CSF space.
  • C4/C5 level shows small posterolateral osteophyte cuasing mild focal narrowing of the neural foramina on the right.

  • I'm not a radiologist but with a little "wikipeding" I understand that I do have back disc although I was there for my hands. However, this can be my safe ticket to stay away from that examination committee!

    Wish me luck.

    I don't wanna say this is a good was6a since it involves some kind of injury but what can you do? make the best of it :)

    wow..that examination committee must be pretty annoying if it freaks you more than the fact that you have a back disc..

    Good luck

    I hear you all the way. I was assigned as a supervisor for Grade10 Students and, hell, they destroyed my brain cells. after 4 days of being a supervisor, I rejected this assignment. hell with them, hell with the administration and hell with anyone else in that school. I am leaving to another job in the summer, why the hell should I do anything to the administration?
    btw, good luck
