I'm Back!!!!

I just got out of the hospital from a 6 day stay where I had a costotransversectomy, T6-T7 discectomy and finished up with a T4-T9 fusion. It wasn't a bad experience but I do have a lot of residual pain in my ribs and kidney areas. I know that pain will subside but will the numbing feeling in my upper right thigh and rib area do the same? This occurred while I was under the knife and has not returned to its prior state. Any insight would be very helpful.



  • I had similar issues, especially with my thigh... nerves take months to heal. Are you taking a nerve medication? If not, you might want to ask the doctor about it. I hope your recovery runs smoothly!
