Stellium In Virgo – Six Doctor Appointments In One Month

Virgo SpiritThe stellium in Virgo is upon us! I have six doctor’s appointments scheduled this month. This is not as bad as it sounds! I actually feel pretty good. It’s just that medical care is becoming super specialized.

One doc does hips; the other does necks. Shots this is. If you want surgery, that’d be doc number three or doc number four, depending on where you’d like to be cut!

Then you’ve got your primary care doc, your gynecologist, your dentist and your eye doctor. I really think I have too many doctors.  One of my goals this month is to get rid of some of them.  First to go is my rheumatologist.

She’s actually taking herself out of the equation by leaving town.  She’s an immigrant. They make them practice in small towns for a certain number of years once they become licenses. Her dues are paid, she’s bouncing.

I don’t blame her. I also won’t miss her. It was obvious from the first time I saw her, she was counting the days.  Doctors in this circumstance are careful not to become attached to their patients. It’s very much like being treated by a computer.

That’s not a complaint. I just think it’s interesting.

I’m happy about these appointments because by the end of the month, they’ll have killed the nerve in my neck, ending nine months of relentless pain. I was also looking at potential MAJOR surgery in three areas. I’m pretty confident I’ll be avoiding it all in the near term. By the end of the month, I’ll know.

Health is boring but poor health can destroy a person’s quality of life. So I’m really happy to see this wrapping up in a favorable way after so much delay and frustration.

As an old man bartender I worked with when I was a teen used to say, ’round midnight. “It’s downhill now, kid.”

What Virgo stuff are you doing this month?

  1. ending nine months of relentless pain.

    Yay!

    I was also looking at potential MAJOR surgery in three areas. I’m pretty confident I’ll be avoiding it all in the near term. By the end of the month, I’ll know.

    …I hope it goes well for you and you get what you need and then it turns out you don’t need much.

  2. Wow, this is bizarre. I’ve also got seven (different) doctors’ appointments, with a possible 8th too, within the next 40 days. I’ve also got a stellium in Virgo natally.

    “It’s downhill now, kid.” – fingers crossed there are some easy restful plateaus ahead 🙂

    Wishing you all the best Elsa, I hope they sort it all out to your liking!

  3. Harvesting and eating raw food and storing the rest. But that’s normal. The change I really notice is that I am reading all the time. I am not sure if that is virgo or not. The books I am reading are books that I acquired around 1990. Rereading them, still good, understanding them on a different level.

    And I am on a ‘pitch it out’ thing so am making use of that to re-organzize some stuff.

    Healthwise, I need to get my eyeglass prescription filled.

  4. Wow, hmm, how do you do it, Elsa? I mean you write about and explain that you are surviving-thriving under what I perceive are extraordinary circumstances physical health-wise, but how would you break it down someone else who is starting to go through a similar situation to help them cope or keep it together? Or how to fall apart?

    Unrelated thought bubble: Can everything on some level be taught?

    I’m glad you’re getting the care you need, or I hope these doctors can find what’s a good balance 🙂

    For me, haha, indicative of my generation perhaps. (Some of you guys prob already are way ahead of the curve on this and don’t need a book to tell you this shit. But I’m learning a lot haha so what the hell right?) Basically, I am “Marie Kondo”-ing my possessions, no bullshit doing it without irony… But laughing at myself the whole way. ;P

    “Marie Kondo-ing”: Using a Shinto-trained lady’s brain via a book to find a better way to keep my room clean!, aka learning me a different relationship with objects, establishing a routine and a ritual to care for my things (and myself) so I’m healthy, appreciative, comfortable and happy. Also, so that I’m not overwhelmed by my own neuroses! Also, hopefully not staring at my pinky finger calculating cost benefit for 3 hours wasting time in the future…. Pretty Virgo-esque to me. 🙂 it’s been actually pretty damn fun, believe it or not hahaha

  5. Working. Basically grabbing any shifts the agency gives me. I’m also training with another home care agency next week. Feels weird–like having a job without having one, if that makes sense??

    I also figured out how to fix my chronic log-in issue with my insurance company’s website. Small beans, but Virgo likes problem-solving.

    As for doctor’s appointments–I don’t have insurance at the moment. So my dental issues and chronic knee pain will have to wait.

  6. In India the medical profession has religious overtones. A doctor is considered next to God. There are also quacks with fake certificates. There are adulteraters who dupe people by giving them fake medicine. There was a kidney racket in one of the Indian states. The patient was suffering from non harmful symptoms. The doctor advised an operation. The patients kidney was removed. Horrible offence. There are good doctors too.

  7. I ripped the (vertical) bandage off the side of neck. “See anything?” I asked my husband.

    “I see the holes,” he said.

    “You’ve got to be kidding me. You can see where they stuck the needles?”

    “Yep.”

    “Gross.”

      • It works but it is the second “test” shot. So they shoot some short acting numb stuff, like novocaine in there, see if it gets rid of the pain. It does.

        Then, once they are sure they have the nerve isolated (they do), they go in and kill it.

        They’ll do this next…the nerve will grow back but I should be pain free for some time…like maybe a year or more. And they can keep doing this once a year…until other symptoms develop. No one knows when that might be.

        I am classified, extreme. the damage is horrific. However, the symptom is PAIN not malfunction (like problems with my gait or bladder control). This will address the pain and I will not have to anything until another symptom presents.

        As for the gait stuff…that’s from spinal cord damage. I’m headed there but need to avoid surgery if possible because the lupus makes it so…

        Well, right now I have two infected fingertips, caused by ingrown fingernails. I can’t get rid of them – they look like ET fingers, because my immune system is suppressed because when it isn’t, it attacks me.

        So that’s the whole deal there, with the neck. But I have a hip problem (addressed last month, for the moment) and tumors to deal with…see that doc next week. :0

        • And they can keep doing this once a year…until other symptoms develop. No one knows when that might be.

          If it banishes the pain without meds that’s good.

          I can’t get rid of them – they look like ET fingers, because my immune system is suppressed because when it isn’t, it attacks me.

          =:0 Prednisone? Is that working for you, at least in emergencies?

          I’m headed there but need to avoid surgery if possible because the lupus makes it so…

          When it rains it pours. Have they considered locking up the knee with a brace or something or is that not effective with the motor control failure?

          see that doc next week. :0

          Fingers still crossed.
