Hi all, hope everyone is doing okay. Haven't been on here for a while, and have missed you guys. I am still doing the same, pain wise, but have been trying to make the best out of every day.
Soon it will be my turn to be nurse, was hubby's turn for past two surgeries, and now I am up.
My husband was the first out of the two of us to have a discectomy 7 years ago. He has dealt with increasing pain and problems since then. The time has now come for him to have more surgery. This time it will be a two level fusion L4-S1. Not sure of exact date or details but sometime in the next couple of months. Surgeon wanted to do it immediately, but hubby wants to get some things done beforehand.
He is very hopeful that this surgery is really going to help him. I hope his recovery goes well and is successful. Am worried he is going to try to do things that he shouldn't too soon after surgery. I will have to lay down the law.He is just so used to doing things that I have been unable to do because of of my back,but now more than ever he has to be careful and let others help him.
