hey SH - got an email tonight from the hospital my back doc does his spine surgery at stating I have an upcoming appointment. This surgery will be a somewhat complicated surgery, having a fusion of L3&L4 to existing fusionof L5-S1 back in 2012. Also have a 1/2 baseball size symptomatic perineural cyst that has wrapped itself around my spine nerve roots and remove a catheter from a pain pump I had removed in June of 2017. Hopefully after this myself and my family can get our life back, Ive been bedridden since having the pump removed, have lost my job right before Christmas, lost our car at Christmas time, lost our house basically lost everything with no money coming in. We had to move in with Family, my kids had to change schools in the middle of year...that’s what makes it hard for me, how hard my kids life has gotten because of my pain. The last 3-4 weeks my pain has been uncontrollable, Monday, my spinal migraines returned due to leaking spinal fluid again from the catheter. Really hoping no more 1 step forward, 4 steps back. Had C5-C7 fused on Halloween 2017. I’m hoping the doc’s office tried to call me but couldn’t get thru because our phones are off. Anyway, please lord let this surgery go well. Sorry for the long story ladies & gentleman, have had so much happen, putting a lot on this surgery and it’s success.
