HELP...I am 59 and a half... one week into my recovery from Hardware removal surgery from T-10 to L-3...the screws were damaging the soft tissue and 3 year of constant level 7-8 on the pain scale...the pain and internal organs started to become involved....anyway...I really need some help as to know what to sort of expect....it's been a huge time gap from from initial surgery to now....
Bit of back round...a nice mare I have conditioned for two years from fall to spring to keep her field and show ready got spooked and went over on top of me...broke my helmet..closed head injury, multiple Anterior rib fractures with intercostal muscle tearing, collapsed lung, heart bruised, posterior rib fractures and T-12 Burst fracture along with Left hand broken and pelvis in two places...in a coma about a month on a vent. Then the Long Rehab adventure.
So here I am after all that....now a new phase....yes i have been back on a OLD, SLOW 13.3 hand Pony /draft horse...We walk for about 20 minutes 2-3 times a month..finally stopped riding as the pain was horrible..as well as not being able to ride my motorcycle. grrrrr! I was one fun Grandma for sure..haha
Has anyone had similar hardware removal?? sure could use some words of advice......Thank you.....lardsgirl
