Hello everyone..I'm new >:D<
I've been surfing and reading everyone's posts..so much to learn and consider.
I've seen several NS and they all concur that the only way for me to get relief is for surgery as my facets have degenerated so much that it's all pushing on the nerve roots.
I've been dealing with the pain and doctors for several years and no long term relief so surgery seems to be the last resort to keep it from getting worse and causing more problems later on.
My only problem is being freaked about the surgery pain..along with the meds..what will help and what won't. I have a high pain tolerance but honestly this scares the S**t out of me. :SS
I've been rethinking my sleeping situation as our bedroom is at the top of 14 steps and the bathroom is on the main level.
We have a large sturdy futon in the office on the main floor and I'm thinking of getting a firm feather mattress to add to it for support. Any thoughts on this? I have also purchased a large recliner to recoup in that has heat and massage.
Again thank you.
