KG’s Blog Post #68 – 7/10/10 5:41pm (curr.score: Doc-Koi 1, Neuroma 0)
Doctor Koi stuck me with gentle precision which caused complete pain. However, the good news is they feel that they have definitely located the source of my problem. This psychotic neuroma, who has declared war on your humble writer, will be taken care of in one of 2 ways. The first will be an injection of freon, which will freeze the neuroma temporarily. If I go the temporary road, it will maybe allow me to play for a couple of months, before the inevitable. I am going to have to have surgery which will cause a 2 months recovery period.
The question now is: when will I do this? My dilemma is, do I try to work hard and play in a few tournaments, or do I have the surgery right now, and bypass the temporary process. This is where the Tour’s decision really affects me, because I have no guarantee that I will get any exceptions to play in these upcoming events. So…do I bust my butt now to get ready to play in a few events, to find out later that I might not even get into those events? So, now I must decide on what to do on this pigoroma.
My doctors, who have been fantastic by the way, will discuss this early next week, and determine my best options. It is a very tricky decision and quite honestly I am not sure which is the right route to go. All I know is that I can not play professional golf @ this point with this pain.
It would not be right if I do not open my mouth on Lebron James drama…all I can say is, it is a downright shame that these great athletes do not know how to swallow their egos and do things the right way.
That is my bit of news at the moment. I will keep you posted.
