Hi all :H Haven't been on lately, but I've been having problems with my anterior incision. :jawdrop: OS says it is a incisional hernia and it has been painful since about a month after surgery. Doin' ok otherwise, but need to have surgery soon to fix this darn hernia. It's been a long road and I feel for you all and hope we ALL have a speedy recovery. Hang in there and take care. :-C Just want to say a special hi to Texascowgirl :H Hope you are doing well!!!


  • Hi...I am sorry to hear you have a hernia. Another member thinks they may have one (front) from their 360 fusion but waiting on confirmation.

    I guess the silver lining is that surgery should be a cake walk to your 4-level fusion. Gosh, I'm sorry to hear that...last thing you needed I'm sure.

    I have to say your upbeat use of emoticons/smilies is quite uplifting and inspirational. Stay tough, keep us posted....good to hear from you!
  • Thanks DNice, would you believe I just now figured out how to use the smileys?!! I'm not too computer literate. :/ Thanks for the post and I'll look to see if I can find the person who may have the hernia too. Take care.

  • You've certainly been through a lot with a 4 level 360, and now having to face more surgery, but like DNice said, the hernia surgery will be so much easier than what you've been through.

    Hope you'll be feeling better soon and let us know how you're going.
