Before reading this please understand I truly want to be that inspiring positive person. I still want to believe there is hope.
I can't believe I have not been on here
for over a year! I read my post I made one month after my surgery and it made
me think of how crazy this journey has been. I am not going to sugar coat it
because it has not been easy. I am still struggling every day and trying to
figure out a way to live somewhat of a normal life. The quality of my life has
decreased tremendously and I want nothing more than to go back in time. I
always wonder if I am just the only one that cannot recover the way you are
"suppose to". Maybe it was the lies my doctor filled my head with and
me trying to meet expectations that are just not reality. I want to find
someone that can relate with me but in the same breath would never wish this on
anyone. I have been to pt and also chiropractors.
Here are my
symptoms 1 year and 4 months:
pain ( never had before surgery)
sitting on any kind of hard surface I have to get up very slow because my
tailbone feels as if it's going to fall out of my body. (sorry it is very hard
to describe that pressure)
I feel like
there are 20 pound bricks line up and down my spine all the time.
and sometimes hurts to breath (feels like someone is stabbing me in my
on pretty much my entire back.
motion is not great. No bending and only movement really is in my neck and
had a surgery similar that has healed a lot better than me and that could offer
question, has anyone ever inquired about taking the rods out?
Thank you in advance for any advice,
