Im one week from my ACDEF surgery, Two new disks. I was in serious condition and once the MRI came in the doctor told me to be at the hospital in two days!
Its scary because i hae been walking around with a serious condition that COULD hae left me paralyzed and didnt know it till after somebody gae me a neck massage and the pain started. I walked about through medical red tape for two monthes on trams and soma.I was thinkingb i was just hacing bad back spasmas
Now im wondering.... how do the doctords tell if u are healing p[roperly? Do they do a another MRI? The exrays didnt show much except some arthritis so im wondering how my surgeon will know that all is healing properly. I dont know how long i hae been in this state. 7 years ago i had a slipped disk and foolishly after about two post op isists stopped going. I felt well and didnt understand the need to keep seeing the specialsit.
I went right back to him,, whne i beklied something was once again wrong whih chdidnt take long. but when i did they said my old info was in storage. I think its because of the internet,, I had to start oer and gie them al lthe details the wanted.
It was sweet thoyugh that my doctor remembered me! My husband didnt think he would.
