WoW! It's all ready been 7 months since my c5-6 acdf. It feels like yesterday. I have stated before that I feel like I am just getting worse as the time goes by.
My meds have been changed. I am now on oxycotin 10mg 3x per day.- Will have to pick that up tomorrow.- Oxycodone 5/325 evry 4-6 hours. A steroid type pack for 7 days begin tomorrow. I have been feeling so terrible for about a month now. Last week my husband came home from work to find me crying hysterically. He wanted me to go to ER. I said "NO", took an extra pill.
I will be seeing a new surgeon next month. The Dr. who is taking care of my pain now believes it's my 3/4 disc. That is the one that I was referred for surgery. I have been trying to find another surgeon for another opinion in the meantime. But every time I think I find one that I am interested in I hear from somebody to stay away. SO maybe I just wait to see this one? The Dr. & his asst. really like hime & think that I will too.
What about work! I really don't think that working is in my best interest right now. At least not now. But, will I ever be able to work? I have an office postition that keeps me extremely busy. I find myself feeling better by Monday (that is my day off). I am still able to do things around the house & for myself but I don't have to be "on" all the time. I can rest in my recliner. As it is I go to work in the morning & come home & sit in my recliner until bedtime. Actually I can't not work. I have too many bills to pay.
I am sorry for the ramble. It's probably taking up too much time & space. I don't even know why I am writing. That's why I have been away. I know so many are much worse off than I am. Honestly I can't imagine being any worse than I am now. I know that may sound selfish, it is only my honesty.
Thank you all for your kindness & support! >:D<
