Re: Freaking out.

[QUOTE=FLDawn;5033614]Katn, are you doing better now after having the surgery? I hope so. The ciroprator told me the last Monday he thought that surgery is about my only treatment for pain now. Then told my yesturday that he now believes I will have problems with this for the rest of my life. I could bearly even walk into the office. Had to call off of work today. Could not even walk this morning without being in so much pain. Felt like my hip and legs were on fire. I really hope this second shot on Wed really works! I hope everyone has a better weekend and has less pain.[/QUOTE]

Dawn, yes, it took time but I am doing much better. Of course if I overdo it, my body tells me and I have to just stop and regroup. I am a secretary which involves a lot of sitting so by the end of the day, I am really tired, but I do my PT exercises at work at lunch and I recline and put my feet up and stretch out so I am good there. Before this last fusion, I couldn't take a step without severe pain from my back/hip down to my foot!! Only position that didn't hurt was laying down. Anything else sometimes I just had to cry to get through it! I still have the nerve pain so I take neurontin; don't think that will ever go away. I have PM apptment end of month, so we will see how that goes. Also have percocet for when I really overdo it. After a LONG 4 years of pain and stress, I am truly blessed to be working again and to have as little pain as I do. I still deal with the muscle weakness terribly. My balance is really off because of the muscles weakness, but the therapy I am hoping will improve that so that I can get rid of the walker and maybe even my cane. Have a good day all!! I am spending my day with son and my mother and my 3 grandchildren! Remember, every day that comes and goes gets you closer to that light at the end of the tunnel!! :cool:
