...and I feel GREAT!!! I am absolutely thrilled.
The surgeon found ligament damage he wasn't expecting, and between that, the bone spurs and the disc ruptures he said there was NO ROOM for the nerves, and the torn ligaments were causing so much pain.
I did have a bad time with the pain meds (dulotid sp?) which caused some vomiting, itiching and heart burn durning the night last night, but once they switched me over to morphine the problems went away! I'm on vicodin and flexeril now and my pain levels are very low.
Before surgery it would have been so difficult for me to type this message, and look at me now. I couldn't be happier. I'm so glad I had the surgery!
I am home and I am tired!!! Nap time
