I have been told different stories by different Drs about if surgery will or won't help me. To date I have not been convinced enough by the ones who say it will help to do it.
However I am going to check with some new Drs and get their opinions after winter this year.
However even if I think surgery would help me, I still have a major issue.
Getting any help while recovering! My hubby is too wishy washy for me to count on and he is all I have to help me.
He changes from minute to minute as to his willingness to help me or not. If I have to force him to help me, it can get ugly
When the Drs. talk about how long my recovery will be IF I get surgery he "jokes" and tells me "you got me for 1 week lady".
We own our own biz and after having other surgeries ( non back ) he has always made me feel so bad I returned to work weeks sooner then I was suppose to.
I make him to sound like a horrible person and there are times I think that too lol The truth is he is just not a care giver for longer then a few hrs.
So I am wondering if anyone else has held off from lack of support and/or help at home afterwards?
Also can I recover with no help?
We are looking at fusion/fusions, cage of L and S and shoot can't remember the other thing the Drs want to do..sorry I don't have more specific details as I am not doing it right now, so have just been given some general thoughts of what I need done.
L1 - S2 "gone" useless in 1 way or another. DDD. RA. Bone Spurs. Tons of nerve damage/issues. Stenosis. Both knees replaced. 50 yrs old. I had a great fall (hence my user name) at age 41 and it has been a domino effect every since.
