The next stage is to have an electrical stimulation test called 'neurophysiology' to see how badly my nerves are working and to determine if some pain relief can be provided through means of injection. Unfortunately, the Deltoid Muscle is only visibly detectable through an MRI scan which my pacemaker prevents me from having. Only by confirmation through some other possible means that the Deltoid Muscle in my shoulder is not irreparably damaged, could a replacement-joint operation under full anaesthetic be considered.
So, the news looks bleak on the shoulder-improvement front for me ever having corrective surgery in the future and I will just have to add another disability to my bag of bones I carry around on my skeleton. I suppose I shall always forfeit my 'Bowling Championship' status as a non-entrant in this year's 'World's Ten-Pin Bowling Finals' if corrective surgery doesn't prove possible!
I have to say that a fully functioning shoulder is way down the list of priorities for me and Sheila at the moment as I await the biopsy results of my rectal warts over this coming week to determine if they are cancerous, and if so, whether I will be offered the big operation required to remove them at Leeds Infirmary?
Next Monday, I spend a large part of my day getting a Pre-assessment at 'Wharfedale Hospital' to see if I am strong and healthy enough to have a big skin-cancer and facial reconstruction operation done under a full general anaesthetic at Leeds Infirmary within the month of March. This will be the third operation/procedure done to remove the cancer cells. This operation may be followed by radiotherapy to mop up if the consultant considers necessary.
Due to other matters, I have no time to post a new song today, so I have re-recorded 'The Quest', as the first time I sang this song, I had the start of a sore throat and wasn't in my best singing voice.
Love and peace. Bill xxx
