Well the time has come to go under the knife. To find out how I got to this...read my post stuck-leg-itis. I fell in 2006 and dislocated my knee, and in doing so I herniated three discs in my back. That has compounded over the years and has gotten to the point where it is compromising my daily going-ons in life.
I have an appointment with a top notch neurosurgeon down in Miami on Monday the 23rd. I have an MRI, CT, X-ray and then a doctors appointment...all in the same day. Needless to say I will physically, but more mentally exhausted than anything. I will know then, after seeing the doctor, when my surgery will be happening.
I will be in the hospital, most likely, for approximately 4-6 days, then home to re-cooperate for 4-8 weeks, depending on how I heal. I have had a previous elective surgery, and I healed pretty darned good, but one never knows. I am darned tootin' healthy...go ahead ask Permission blogger. But this has knocked me down to my knees. I need some releif. No one should be going through the pain I am going through.
When I was young, I used to here older people say, "You learn to live with the pain." I now know what they mean.
So keep me in your thoughts, and send any good vibes my way, so I can have a speedy recovery. As soon as I know something, you folks will know something.
