By gum, SpineAZ, you have had more than your fair share. I wish you well on this next surgery and I don't envy you. I'm beginning to feel as though there ought to be a profession for multiple surgery people cuz it takes all our time. God love you. And I hear just what you are saying that it is so hard to tease these things out. I am asked so many questions about my symptoms and I have to give so many caveats - yes, my pain in my left leg was lower for 2 weeks. My hubby got all happy about that. I had to remind him that I was also hardly on my legs due to recovery from ACDF. Once I'm up and on my feet, the pain builds back in. That's one small example. Meds are another. Pain meds for surgery work on other pain, too. Well, to that I say, "Amen."

I've had a very good day - much reduced arm pain. Now the trick is to stay put and not start over-doing things. Must stay focused on recovery. I'll bet you are very busy preparing for such a big surgery. I was out of work for 3 months after each of my lumbars. If I could have taken some time off ahead of those surgeries, I'd have really done better in the post-op. Ah, well. We can't have everything. How are you feeling about this next op? Are you set up well for your post-op? SQ
