Jim's back, kind of



  • Glad to hear you're on the other side and that you're on to recovery at home. I know what it's like to have the doc go in and find more than we bargained for, but I didn't end up in a nursing facility. But I'm glad you feel it was for the best and helped you move along a little faster than if you'd gone home too soon.

    We've been thinking about you and glad you see you posting. You've got a long road ahead of you, but at least the worst of it is over and it's time to heal. Take it easy, follow doc's orders and rest and walk when you can.

    Take care, my friend. Again, nice to see your post.

    In chronic pain and all of the surgeries over the last 10 years. The P.M.Dr. Has decided he needs to cut the meds back....NOW!!! Doc. :jawdrop: couldn't we wait for a full recovery???!!! :/
    And the surgeon said the best we can shoot for would be 5 to 30% reduction in pain, the rest is irreversible damage. X(
    I think I may need to consider a new P.M.Dr. ~X(

    Even though I'm not a doctor, that does not sound right - especially since you're so early in recovery! How does he know at this point how much pain relief you'll end up with??

    Take care! Love 'n >:D< >:D< >:D<, Ess <br />
  • Hey Jim,

    Been following your progress.......I'm sure you're happy to be back home. It's so early that I would think it's hard to tell just how pain-free you'll end up. I do hope you find some relief quick!

    Hang in there, friend!
