Christmas was fun, lots of food and enjoyment, thouh with the thought of the 10/1 specialist appointment and a flaring up of the dizzyness and head pressure there was a bit of a cloud over the whole thing.
Anwyay, 10/1 came and the doc gave us the good news that the MRI did not show anything really serious, and I do have a brain after all.
However, he has now asked for a CT scan, as it looks like I have a cyst in my sinus cavity that is causing all the bother. The CT scan lets him see the detail that the MRI is not designed to show. Then it looks like the plan is to go in and drain and cut away as needed. Its a delicate op but it by no means as bad as I thought. So in my mind its good news, though I still have all the same symptoms and cant drive, play xbox, use VDU's for very long, read, run around alot etc......
But it feels like this is the home stretch and a few weeks down teh line I will have a reset button pressed in my head and away we go.
In the picture below from the MRI you can see the sinus cavities, my right is on the left if that makes sense. The bad side top left (my right side) is filled with white, the 'good side' (top right) is an empty cavity filled with black, as it should be.

Anyway, just waiting on the a CT appointment, then 1 week later a return to the specialist, then I guess a date is set for the op if it proves to be what is needed
