Hi Spiney Friends,
Took a break from SH for awhile as I was /am very busy setting up my Internet "store". Very time consuming, I had so much to learn (and still do). Even though I wasn't on the site I was still thinking about my spiney pals.
Anyway, yesterday went to my spine Dr. after having an MRI due to new pain issues and just as I had expected, my L1-2 disc is now shot. Makes sense since this is the one directly above the four levels of fusion and metal already there. I am also now showing signs of "discogenic edema" in multiple areas of my vertebrae where the surgeries have taken place (L2-S1). The GOOD news is that my spinal cord is totally fine for now.
So, its the waiting game for my back (and neck), signs of nerve damage occuring will determine the next fusion.
So thats my story, I'll have a bit more time to be on SH, hopefully I can be of some help to someone.
Have a good day,
