Just a note to make people feel better. This site has been
helpful to me in the last few weeks. I was out shopping with
my adult daughter on a beautiful Indiana day. I survived the
day with very little pain. The best day I have had so far.
There is hope
!!!!!!!! Hang in there!!


  • That is something I am really looking forward to doing with my daughter.

    I've not been able to go for a session of shopping without pain for over two years!
    I'm hoping it will be something I can do before too long.
  • It will come. Do everything they have told you to and
    dont take any risks. Good Luck
  • Good to hear you're healing well and got out with your daughter. I hope you continue to heal completely. Thanks for the encouragement. Charry

  • Yay! That's awesome Raygirl! I can't wait to go shopping also!

    I am especially anxious to be able to fit into all of my clothes again! I'm getting there! And when I do, I am going to treat myself to the cutest outfit I can find! In the end, before my surgery, all my pants/jeans hurt to wear, pushing on my spine.

    You are a few weeks ahead of me, hopefully it will be here before I know it!

    Again, congrats on your success! Thanks for posting and giving us encouragement! Too bad we can't all go shopping together!
  • Go Raygirl!!!!Wonderful news!
  • What a nice reply. I too could not wear jeans well.
    Stay positive. It was easy for me to get depressed when
    it didnt seem to be any better some days. But it is better now. Good luck!!! Raygirl
