:H every one
I'm so glad i found this site to read about ppl's experiances.My name is Jodi and I'm from Victoria,Australia I had a laminectomy 5 years ago and just recently had a lumbar spinal fusion on the 15/8/08... I tell you what its the worst op i have ever had. :''( I'm still in pain and my flexability is still no good. I'm still going to rehab once a week and I'm very sore for days afterwards. I do my exercises everyday and cant understand why I'm still like this. I wake up early in the mornings with this pain in the middle of my back, it's so bad i can hardly breathe and have to get out of bed to ease the pain!Does anyone else have these symptoms?
I've been back to work and got the siatic pain down my left leg so I'm off work again till i feel ok to go back. It a work related injury and am on workcover. How long do you reckon I'll be off.
My family tell me to take it easy this time since it's the 2nd operation.
I feel as if my whole lifestyles been taken away from me,I went to the beach the other day and couldn't even lay on the sand :''( !!!! My hubby has booked a holiday in another state and we are driving and i feel that i wont be able to last in the car for that long. I might have to fly up.We had it booked b4 i had my op but had to postpone it when i found out i had to have an op.I feel like a burden to my husband as this holiday was a dream he has had for years, and I've ruined it. =((
Has anyone got any idea's what to do during the day instead of sitting on the computer all day???life is so boring now i cant do much other than a bit of housework :? :T
Would love to hear from anyone that needs a friend that'll relates and understands what their going through >:D<
