Thank you all for having me in your thoughts and prayers. I have been struggling this last week with a bizzare foot problem. I had fusion from L4 to S1 eight weeks ago and had a kink happen at week five. Last week they found what they thought to be a sliver of donor bone out of place and it was touching a nerve that sent pain to my foot. My NS was great in ordering a CT last week to find out the root problem with my foot. We tried steroids for a week and hoped it would work. If they didnt work I was facing the possibilty of a quick clean up surgery. Here is the update from today at eight weeks and 1 day since surgery.
I am showing signs of fusion at both levels
My BLT *bend lift twist* restrictions have been lifted
I can now continue PT as it was put on hold (going tommorow)
The sliver has dissolved
Foot pain is gone almost 100 percent
The steroid WORKED so no clean up surgery needed
Everything is PERFECT !!!! YAY
My doctor gave me a hug as I cried tears of relief in his office and he said "you are rebounding so fast, your foot is healing, now get out there and live your life again, everything is perfect"....THIS is why I trust and respect my NS, he is thorough and CARES!
I cant thank all of you enough for your support. I hope you are all doing well.
Wish I could dance today!! One day soon though I can do a little boogie. Finally tears of relief!
