Hello all,
I had lost all the login info so now I am a newby again but some of you may remember me! My name is Chrissy and I am still in recovery mode from my latest surgery on Sept 3 2008. A two level ACDF of C4-5 and C5-6

At this time i am undergoing PT and I am still in PM. I have been going through trigger point injections to work out the terrible burning I was left with in the scapular area after my cervicle surgerues. I still have neck pain but not like before.

The treatments I am recieving at this time seem to be helping me. In PT the therapist is doing Myofacial release and that coupled with the trigger points has helped enough that I have just reduced my meds by 30% about 4 days ago.

We will just have to see how my pain levels are in over the next few weeks and the coming month before I can see if I am ready to try another decrease.

I am a student and I am not always able to come and check in every day , but if you do PM me I will respond.

I have missed my friends here and it has been about a month or so snce I have been on so I thought I might say hellp and re introduce myself.

It has been one heck of a road and there are many folks here who have helped me through every step.
I am returning here to share my experience strenth and hope with others that are living with chronic Pain of many sorts...
We can't do this thing alone so lets all share and let the good times begin... :H
