Well a brief update, since my ACDF on August 3rd that seems to be healing quite well with just minor discomfort in my neck at times. Arm and shoulder numbness are pretty much gone and my spinal cord which was in severe danger is protected so this seems to be a great sucess.
Now for the sequel, in part two the surgery will focus on L-4 to S-1 where most of my severe pain emminates from. I have nueropathey in both legs and feet. Severe left lef and hip pain. Can't stand for over 10 minutes without terrible pain, sitting normally causes pain so I have to lean. Sleeping positions is a hassle, and walk has become more and more difficult. I have been on pain meds for 3 years which do help a great deal with my pain but add to my depression and rob me of personality and drive to desire to do anything.
I am requesting you all's thoughts and prayers as i go to another surgery. My surgery date is December 14th and i have to be there at 5 AM so i assume the surgery will begin at 7 AM. I am some what nervous about this and what the outcome may be.
You all have been so helpful before and I thank you again for the previous support. If you can, please give it to me once more. God Bless you ALL and i keep you all in my prayers as well.
