Over the last few weeks my symptoms have been worsening, as well as new ones cropping up. I'm trying not to be upset but its hard.
More and more I am just on my couch or recliner and doing minor things hurts like heck. Now I am having spasms in my butt, some where I can't move for a few minutes. Walking lately gives me pain down to my knees and driving is causing hideous pain after 5-10 minutes.
Its just a bit unsettling how fast these new symptoms have come on.
My fusion for L5-S1 is scheduled for Jan. 2010 but I called the Surgeon's office to see if I can get in earlier. The only problem with going in sooner is that my husband has an extra part-time job until the end of December and hes my helper.
I don't know how I am going to get through a week of Disneyworld around Halloween, but I just can't dissapoint my kids, maybe it will be good for me, mentally speaking.
OK, thanks for letting me vent. I feel better just knowing that there are other spineys out there who can relate.
