Hi Sherrie! :wave:

I agree, these boards are wonderful. :) My opinion is that anytime you have any spine surgery, you are never totally 100%.(some recover better than others). Of course having the surgery brings great relief to some ungodly pain and for that it is worth it. I am learning that I can not do all the things that I used to do and I am starting to accept that. It is time for us to be good to ourselves.

My myleogram showed something on my thyroid. I spoke to my doc and she said I will have that checked once I heal from this.

I know what you mean about all these surgeries taking a toll. I had 2 biopsies this year for bad paps and I have to have the conization surgery sometime in September, October.

When you are tired, rest. When in pain, stop. Take good care of you.
