For all of you who dont know me, I am in my 2nd - 2 level fusion. I had the first in Dec 08, and the 2nd in Dec 10. Now the same thing is happening to me, that happened the last time. I have been doing so well, and all of a sudden my back pain and inflammation returned with a vengance. Last time, in 08, it was the discs above the fusion that went. I am hoping this isnt the case again.
Anyway, say some prayers for me. I called the Ortho and he said I could do 1 steroid pack and if it didnt clear it up I had to come and see him. Well I called today and talked to his nurse and she set me up for a appt June 2. I told her what was going on, and she said they would Xray there. Then an hour later, called and said my Dr wanted me there first thing on Tues, May 31. So, I am glad I am going, because something is amiss. I am just so discouraged, as I thought I finally had my back getting better. I had tapered down on my meds, and was doing so well. But I am glad that he is seeing me right away. He has been amazing! Wish me luck, until then, I will just try and behave myself. Thanks for listening!
