I haven't been on much lately. Trying to get things organized and ready for my upcoming surgeries.
On 12/31 I go in for outpatient surgery to have the left lobe of my thyroid removed.
Then on 1/12 I go in for 2 360 degree fusions. L4-S1
I'm not worried about the thyroid surgery. Doing it to be careful. A nodule that was aspirated came back indeterminate. The surgeon and other docs are pretty sure it's nothing. This came up on a MRI of my neck and shoulders. If it's cancer, it's really early and should completely removed with the surgery.
I'm pretty scared of the back one though. I won't lie to anyone about that. I had to go off my Celebrex for the first surgery and have been living in horrible pain ever since it got out of my system. I can go back on it for five days then will have to stop for the second surgery. Joy joy joy. Fortunately, I got fitted for my back brace on Monday. It helps a little but of course it doesn't take away the pain.
I'm hoping that all of you are doing well. I'll check back in when I get a little time.
