has anyone heard of this?? had it happen to them??? know ANYTHING at all about it??? I am pretty sure mine happened because of the staph infection......the incision busting open....and all that went on....so will they probably go in and re attach the muscle??? the sink hole in my back seems to be getting bigger,,,,,but the worst is the PAIN i cant stay like this!!!! :(


  • Leslie, I really get grossed out when I see your avatar. :sick:

    I am not sure what they do for the posterior muscle thing, but another member has this. I'll PM you who she is. Don't want to put her information out here if she doesn't want it.

    Is the pain from the muscle wasting, or from the infection, or just post op pain? I can tell you my neck/shoulders still kills me, but I'm sure it isn't anything like what you are feeling. PM me when you need to.

    I'll email you my posterior incision in just a minute. It's been days since you asked me to. Sorry I haven't done it before now.

    Surviving chronic pain one day at a time, praying for a reprieve because living another 40 years like this doesn't sound too fun!
  • Please make sure to take care of yourself! My posterior incision is healing nicely. Your picture reminds me to be very careful. I will pray for your quick recovery!
    Severe DDD. Klippel Feil Deformity. Cervical Foraminatomy that turned into Lamy. I have tried so many treatments, therapy's and medications.
  • some blood test, a gallium scan, CT, MRI....I see the doctor monday he is NOT the doctor who did my 3 surgerys he is my second opinion....Thank you Cindy I would love to talk to the person you are talking about!!! Leslie
