I am scheduled for L4-S1 Fusion with hardware surgery on March 24. I need some advise about an unplanned trip.
we had a death in our family and we have to ride about 10 hours in our mini-van on Thursday and then back on Sunday. We will be staying with family when we arrive.
My pain level has been very low for the past 3 days, I don't know why but I am not questioning. I have not done anything different so it is a blessing for some relief. Usually my pain is in the low back, radiating through my bottom and radiating down my legs to my feet. Both legs worse on the left. My heating pad has been very helpful. I saw a post where someone had a heating pad that plugged in to the lighter in the car. If someone knows where to get one, please let me know.
I would appreciate any other ideas. My husband was not too exicited about taking me, but I really want to go. Unfortunately, my cousin that passed away was only 63, and she died from a urinary tract infection that did not go away and it turned into sepsis, it was such a shock to my entire family.
Thanks so much,
