You know it's amazing -- just get a few years older and your nice reliable body suddenly
seems to decide to let you know it is getting a bit worn out.

Went to see Dr. Sadowski in coquitlam today for my peripheral neuropathy (numb feet)
problem. It was my visit re this that caused the test that found the cancer.
The visit took about an hour and a half. had electric shocks applied to my legs and feet,
quite interesting - it makes you move things like toes without even trying. When I had my little interview after the tests Dr. Sandowski (who incidently was great) said.

"Well larry looking at the results everything is normal"

"Your kidding, you mean there is nothing wrong with me"

"Oh no, no, what I mean is the tests confirm everything you had told me"

At some time durring the inital interview I had mentioned that it was interesting having a Doctor (Fransen) about the same age as me because after I would give him my symptoms he would often say.
"Hey I've got that too."

So later after he had given me a prescription, blood test form, and MRI thing form, and was escoring me out the door he said.
" Incidently I have the same problem!"
I laughed and patted him and the back. But thinking it over I'm not sure if he was joking
or he really did have numb feet syndrome.

Any way I'm home and about to take my first peripheral neuropathy pill. Incidently there is no cure and they really do not know wlhat causes it.

  1. What's peripheral? And how does electrocuting your feet help them stop being numb! I hope the numb feet is nothing serious.

    Have a good day!
