Seeking for Decision Making Assistance



  • Momo
    As I have Gently reminded RRM
    There are no medical professionals here.

    ONLY personal experience can count toward advice.
    Let you mind rest from all the mental gyrations all this has caused you.

    That for one..the thought of surgery is stressfull enough
    Two..All the new info you have to assimilate in a relatively short time
    Three. Your awake thinking about this..alot no?

    To be sure, its not to be taken lightly..but as a progression toward decision.

    Rest and mental relaxation is as important to healing as any proceedure or therapy.

    Keep asking, keep informing yourself to take the mystery from thw road ahead.

    Dont add things that havent or may not happen to the menu before you.

    Be Gentle with yourself above all!

    Welcome Momo-k and Thanks, and I feel that I am just sharing my experience here and have always been on the look out for some hopeful solution to somehow get rid of the implants on me since they have made my Life Miserable due to constant Irritation, Numbness & Cramps when I move around. It's almost like being Chained in a Medieval Cage. So I felt it's very important to share my experience.

    Best Regards....

    Thank you for your kind words and support, @William Garza .
    YES I AM AWAKE THINKING about this every single day/night, and even think about it in my sleep. I appreciate your comment >>> "but as a progression toward decision". As this is a small progression on my path to a decision; I also realized that spine conditions are something that I have to learn to get along with wether I decide to have a surgery or decide not to have a surgery.

    Thank you for sharing you experiences, RRM. Hope you find your resolutions to healing. My thoughts are with you.

  • This week turned out be a very challenging week physically and mentally. Maybe continuous raining and temperature drop affected it. It certainly felt things are getting worse, and getting closer to my decision.  Rain, Rain go away!!! :/

    Hi momo-k! I know that you have a lot on your plate right now. I was just wondering if you have been able to make a decision about surgery? I know it has been weighing heavy on your mind....

    Hi Everyone!
    I don't know why, but things have been slowly and increasingly becoming rough and tough mentally and physically; new pain felt in different body parts. Anyways... I finally, I think, accepted my reality as best as I could and decided to get  a surgery in late January-early February if my employer approves for FMLA. It is "if", because I have exhausted my allotment early this year.  I need to bank some working hours before they give me another one.

    I feel little bit relieved once I accepted the fact that I need a surgery; but at the same time, I now feel anxious and worried about what if it doesn't work out...

    So I am sure I will be posting to ask for your supports, and whining and crying... :p 
    Thanks for your supports and being there for me.

    Momo, instead of saying what if, say it will. Think positive, it's good for the soul.
    You could "what if" all day. Is it going to change the outcome? Have faith in your surgeon and yourself.
