Just send me to the Glue Factory

So a month ago I had another CT scan done on my jaw to see if the arthritis had gotten worse or if the injections I had worked. I knew the right side was back to square one; the clicking and crunching tin foil sound when ever I talk, the locking up of the jaw and just general pain.

Had an appointment at maxillofacial today to find out the results. Left side, thats OK. The right? Acute arthritis. Yay :p The only option is surgery to replace the jaw joint.

Now, I don't want surgery, but don't really have an option as its just going to keep getting worse. Have to figure out what is up with my right lung before anything can happen.

With everything else that is wrong with me, the von willebrands, MS, what ever is wrong with my lung, makes things a little more complicated. The surgery in itself isn't, its everything else that complicates things.

The doctors keep saying I am really young to be  having jaw joint problems this bad. ah...sorry I guess :p

Ah that sucks :( Don't you just love it when the doctors tell you you're far too young for something, like THAT makes it any better!

That is lousy! So sorry to hear that. You can't seem to catch a break lately! But I don't think we're ready for glue... ;-) Take care of yourself!

Wow, sucks. You need now to curl up with something wonderful, or several somethings. You dog, your man, a tall bottle of wine (if that's your spirit). Hope things get sorted out, really, really, really.

Well I obviously need to catch up on my blog reading...I am so sorry to hear of your health issues. I agree with the comments that it is not yet time for the glue - hang in there and yes, do curl up with various somethings of wonderful! My dog, my man and my root cellar filled with home made wine really helps me! You are in my thoughts...
