hi there
i havent posted on here for about 22 weeks as iv been waiting in pain to find out what was rong with me. i had had a xray when i last posted. well since then iv had a mri scan and had the results iv got spondy. and im now on a 4 month waiting list for a l4 5 fusion. iv spoke with the surgon who told me he will be putting screws in my spine. he also said that ill av to have him go in through my stomach to put a cage in were the disc goes.this was yesterday so now im just waiting for my op date letter. the whole thing from first going to docs to having op will of took a year. its been a long slog but now im more at ease noing whats wrong and what is to be done. ill be bricking it as the op date draws closer but for now im calm. just thought id update my progress for those who may remember me thanks tready


  • I'm glad that you found out what's going on and have a plan to move forward.I'll assume that 'bricking it' means getting nervous?? lol? If so,I can imagine! Last week I had an MRI and I was nervous awaiting the visit with my Dr today..just THINKING about surgery-or if my Dr would suggest it was enough to raise my BP.He didn't suggest it though,and I'm relieved.

    I hope you get your date soon.Waiting can be the hardest part.Welcome Back-Don't be a stranger-lol.
  • Spondy - I have a relative of that which is Anterlothesis - glad to meet you - if it makes you fell better - I hurt all of the time and the only reason that I amgetting in to places is becasue my wife runs a medical practice and understnds the inner workings of the SYSTEM. I hope things go well for you. I am still in a decision phase and going to talk to one more doc before I decide...good luck -
