Today I had a consultation with another Physical Therapist. She is considered best in my city. I still have severe pain in my lumbar/sacral area down my left leg that I've had since day one postop, but for the last month I've been having thoracic pain, around my ribs, and my T12 vertebrae is protruding outward, which is a new problem. I had a very slight kyphosis before surgery, but now it seems to be taking the brunt of my weight. Sitting is excrutiating, especially when I'm not supported with pillows.
This physical therapist confirmed that my thoracic spine is taking a hit now. She has so many new techniques that no one else has ever bothered to explore, but she seemed very concerned about my future, and me being able to work again. I have to stay focused on getting better..its just this is the first time that I've had to consider this might be the beginning of the end of my spine health. I may be 50, but Really??....Reality check.....Can I say...this really STINKS!!!
Thanks for listening to my rambling,
