Hi friends.

I am here to update you all on what is going on. I have not been on here for awhile dealing with other physical issues on top of the spinal problems.

I had an Epidural in my neck which helped but has not helped with the pain but did not help the nerve pain. The nerve pain was so bad I could hardly stand it. They have been trying to work out the pain meds that were non narcotic. I am a non narcotic person. So bottom line they put me on Lerica.

In the mean time I had foot surgery and dealing with the fact that the foot is not wanting to fuse so that has been another issues in its self.

Well have been having massive pain in my lumbar spine where I had surgery as well and it has been bad so now I will have an Epidural this Tuesday in hopes it will work because I will have another major surgery this month which is I will be having a Hysterectomy.

So allot on my plate in the the midst of this now I am having hip problems and just had an MRI and am waiting on the report.

So on allot on the ole plate.

I hope you are all doing well.

Take care


  • Just wanted to say hi.... Sorry that you are going through so many things. Sounds like you got things going on all over your body, darn it!! I will cross my fingers that the injection works.

    Just curious as to what is going to happen with your foot since it is not fusing?

    Take care!! Renea'
  • I hope the injections help your back pain and praying your surgery goes well and recovery and for your foot also. Keep us posted on your MRI results. When two agree on anything...Take care. Charry

    They will have to go in and refuse it with my bone this time. I am praying it will not happen.

    Thanks for the love and support you to may you be richly blessed. Hugs
  • Best of luck to you in everything that you're going through. Any one of those alone is a trial, but put them all together at one time and it's a full time deal.

    Best of luck to you with everything! :)
  • Howdy!

    Wow! Lots going on there. I'm sending you positive thoughts and energy that you get relief. Sorry about your foot, I too hope they don't have to revise that surgery. Please don't disappear so long the next time! Keep us posted! Support *HUG*
