And since I am technically not a new member, I am reintroducing myself since I've been gone quite a while! Which I will explain somewhere, LOL, don't know where and it's a long story which also involves me not having access to a computer.

I am in need of a 3 level ACDF of C4-5, C5-6 and C6-7. I was rear-ended on 12/21/04, have multiple docs, oh so chronic pain and battles with the insurance company even though we went to trial last year and I still have not seen a cent! My mom is crazy, my sister does the best she can (which ain't much) and my family is not supportive of my condition at all.

I didn't mean to abandon you guys, it wasn't by choice really, things have been really, really bad. I hope that all of you are doing well and I miss you so much Papa Ron and Mama Griff! Maybe I'll be able to achieve stability one day!


  • I will post the update in Matters of the Heart tomorrow...I am too tired and sore to sit at the computer but I will be back on...I need a laptop but that purchase has so far eluded me, just isn't in the budget with all the meds and lack of health insurance and lack of money coming in...

    So I will do it tomorrow! looking forward to seeing old friends and meeting new ones!

  • I don't think I've ever seen your posts, but wanted to say "Hi" since I've had the surgery that you need. Feel free to PM if you want to vent or have any questions.

    Welcome back!
  • I think I'm cursed! I have been sick since the last post and still not feeling all that great but am about to post the update in matters of the heart!

    Thanks everyone for you're welcoming me back...

    Cath, I would love to know about the surgery! Any information you could give me about the before, after and recovery would be great! I'm hoping that the neorosurgeon will call me sometime this year...He was supposed to call in January or February and here is March and nary a word!

    Thanks again for all of your hi's! Glad to see the new and the old faces again.
