Just wanted to let you all know that surgery 3 will take place tomorrow morning. I have to say that the last two surgeries were successful in stopping the progression of myelopathy. The damage to my cord has not gotten worse, my NS said my spinal cord looked like someone who may have MS, but I don't have MS since we know how that damage occurred. This next surgery will totally decompress my cervical spine, they are doing a two level posterior laminectomy at c3 and c4, with some other cleaning up being done. Doctor says it should be a 4 hour surgery with a 2 day hospital stay. I will try to post later in the week when I get home and can sit at the computer.
I also wanted to say that the WC battle is now over, we got the Judges decision yesterday in the mail. They (my employer) have to pay me WC since the date of my injury, to continue as long as necessary, they also have to pay for scaring(75 weeks of comp) after I am either released to go to work or totally disabled. They are also to pay all medical bills so far, and are responsible for any bills or procedures in the future done to my cervical spine. It is a big weight lifted off of our shoulders. Good things are happening and we know things will be ok tomorrow.
Thanks for all the support.....guess it wasn't the train afterall........
