Just posting to tell you im going for a fourth operation on my back. First 2 Ops to correct Scoliosis condition and third was removal of partially one of my rods in my lumbar region due to screws loose & rod popping out of initial position.
Anyway i now have a fourth surgery coming up due to another rod at my lumbar region coming loose and popping out!..shouldnt have happen,didnt do anything stupid apart from kayaking maybe when i was interrailing last summer :-/,dunno how it actually happened (so fustrating!).
Anyway i have or had a brilliant surgeon..best in the country apparently (Ireland) but now he has retired from preforming surgeries and now im recommended to this new guy who also specialises in Sport injuries!..big whoop!
Sorry but having a surgeon who you know and trust for years its hard to trust yourself with somebody else. I really dont know what to make of any of this..im just fustrated,really dont have a question but just wanted to rant as i have nobody to talk to about this sort of stuff..not even to my parents (they are so clueless sometimes).
My last surgeon is very experienced and confident (thats why i liked him in the first place,his confidence in doing the surgery sucessfully!). Also hes a nice guy overall,we talk about sports and family but not that much as he was very serious most of the time (which i liked also). He knows my family history (brother died 2 years ago suddenly)so he understood we couldnt have another tragedy in the family..which i think made him perform to the best of his ability (sounds stupid but just telling you how i feel).
Im not saying i thought my surgeon was brilliant but i was just comfortable with him..felt a little at ease knowing i was going to be cut open like a turkey on a table by him!. Now i gotta meet some other surgeon and knowing he probably wont fit the bill like my last suregon did..which will worry me greatly! (suffer from axiety)
Sorry for the long post..any past experiences or advice you can give me i would be very grateful indeed! Thanks for listening!
