Hello Old Friends and New soon to be Friends.....
I have not been on here for so long that I had to register again..I forgot my old name...LOL.
I had a 2 level posterior spinal fusion done on July 28th of 2008....the road to recovery has been hell for me! Only one good thing is after my surgery I can lift my right foot up, I could not do that before!!
I am in pain all the time....both legs but mainly my right. On one of my check-ups after the surgery I was talking with the surgeon and telling him about how I still hurt and some of it is new pain in new places...he informs me that the levels above my fusion are starting to go bad sooner than he thought they would! What am I going to do.....the hospital stay for 4 days for my surgery was over a quarter of a million dollars!!! :jawdrop: I cant go through another one...not mentally, physically or financially!!!
Then this morning my little dog knocked something over at 1am...I JUMP out of bed and then it hits me....severe PAIN...from the middle of my shoulder blades all the way down to my toes!!!! OMG, I dont know how much more I can go through!!
Thank you for letting me vent!!!
