  • I am sorry to hear about your problem. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

    I had the same test 2 weeks ago at one of those mobile screening busses that go around doing "health fairs".

    What is your prognosis upon a successful procedure to repair it?

    Agin, sorry to hear you are going thru this.

  • I am so sorry to hear your news. Stay strong, girl! You can do this! All the best to you.
  • Terri, you are a strong and capable woman who can do anything you wish for- even get over this hurdle. Seems like you are going for the olympics :))( but you dont need to train soo hard.

    I am sure all will be well and there will be an easier option for you. Do you take DHA fish oil? It is great for circulation, cholesterol etc.

    It does also sound as if it could be the reason you did not fuse, poor circulation=no fusion.

    Big hugs Sara O:)
  • sorry for all the pain. hope you get the treatment you need really soon so you can start to get better and better and not worse and worse. thinking of you... sending good thoughts your way. one day at a time...

    keep checking in with us.
  • Oh Terri, I am so sorry you got disappointing news. At least now you know what is wrong and can work toward a solution.

    My ex had the femoral-popliteal stints put in on Feb 14. It was an outpatient procedure and went smoothly. He developed a hematoma on one leg, but he is on plavix, so that is probably why. He is a smoker with high blood pressure, only 44 years old. He had leg pain but just thought it was joints/muscles until he got diagnosed due to having a heart cath after a heart attack. He got stints in his heart too in January.

    You can do this! You will get through cause you are such a strong postitive person. I am sorry you are having to deal with so much. I will be here to support you in any way I can. >:D< :* Cali-Sue
