Well last night for the first time since surgery we had sex. Well sort of.
I could feel nothing. Absolutly nothing. When he asked if I was ok I just burst into tears because I was completly numb. Its like that whole area is no longer conected to the rest of my body.
Is it going to be like this forever? will i ever be able to get any feeling back? I so wanted to get back to being like a normal couple I never imagined it would have been such a complete disaster.
Some of you will know I had discectomy 10 june. I have been left with numbness in left leg/foot and no bowel/bladder control. Surgeon said it is down to damage to nerves insurgery as disc had compressed nerve and then stuck to it. As inflammation from the sugery goes down nerves will recover and feeling will come back. I see him again on tuesday and this will add another page of questions for him.
Has anyone had any problems like this? is there a way back for me?
Feeling completely useless.
