    Back update

    I went to the surgeon monday, and from what he told me, my spinal cord injury is not any better, but the back is feeling better. I may have to stop working and do on social security disability, depending on what the next couple iof months bring.

    The spinal cord injury causes my feet to tap non stop when I'm sitting, sometimes I drag on foot, and can't pick it up when walking, and last but not least, if I'm on my feet too much my right leg starts kicking, as well as my right kneecap more or less having spasms.

    The surgeon feels that the best thing to do is hope that the injury heals on its own........

    That's nuts, man! It truly sucks that you might have to stop working. At least you are having less pain... but still hard to handle. I am sorry you're having to deal with it.

    No matter where you go, there you are.

    I blew out a disc two years ago and had a lamenectomy to fix it. At the time the nerve pain was so severe I could not, stand, or even lie down. It felt like my hip was broken and the lower part of my leg was on fire. I had to sleep sitting up on my couch for two weeks. Just getting to the bathroom was a fit of absolute agony and no amount of pain medicine was strong enough to allow me to even lay flat. They gave me an epidural which had no impact other than to hurt me beyond belief. I hate those. But after the surgery I could stand and walk again but with the disc gone things just continued to deteriorate.

    So last September I elected to move forward with the next surgery a spinal fusion. This time they went in through my stomach...slipped around the important stuff in the middle and locked L4 and L5 together with a little spacer piece. The two bones are growing together.

    While this part continues to heal it seems that the disc between L4 and L3 is becoming problematic and may require fixing. Hopefully the trend doesn't continue up the spine, but that is a possibility. I suppose eventually I'll just be a robot. But despite the ongoing issues I'm glad I did the spinal fusion.

    So I know what you're going through and I hope you get things under control.

    I asked about fusing the discs (L-1/L-2) byt the dr. says they're too high and fusing them won't work very well. I try to stay positive, but after all the sh*t I went through with it this year, (2 major surgeries in about 6 months), it's hard to stay positive, Even more so trying to figure out how the hell I can afford to buy christmas presents for everyone when I'm not able to work much. Oh well, at least the paraliis of my left leg is gone !!

    The big thing for me is to take the ibuprofen. It isn't for the pain but for the anti-inflammatory aspect. I don't like taking pain medicine because I always believe its important for me to know how I feel, but the anti-inflammatory part is important to settle the nerves down.

    They had me on lyrica for a while which was supposed to help with the nerve pain. I'm trying to remember what I was on for a while which did seem to settle things down a little without making me swimmy.
