So sorry I have not been here to give y'all an update lately. Been having lots to do with holidays as well as this unrelenting pain to deal with. Ok, when I came here I think it was October, I said I was going to have surgery soon on my C/4 vertebrae, well I did get a second opinion from another Neurosurgeon and he told me he HAD to have a discogram on me to know which disk was giving me the problem. I understand that but was SOOO scared because I heard awful things about discograms. I made it through the discogram and found out that I don't only have one disk that is bad but 2. They are the 4/5 and the 5/6. The fluid leaked out and i suppose that means they are ruptured. This discogram was done around the middle of December and with the holidays, etc I am only now able to get my follow-up appoint with the surgeon next week and I think he will then tell me about when we will do the surgery. I am holding on with Lortabs for pain allowed to take 4 a day but folks, they only last 3 hours instead of 4
This primary doc I have doesn't want to give me anything else until my surgery and that's got me bummed out but I guess I will survive... I cannot wait for the surgery, I want it done quick and to get off all meds, the sooner the better. I thank all of you for your support, thankful I have this place to come to and vent.
