Hi Sandi,You are in my thoughts and prayers.
I left you a message to your post. I'm glad to see you have found a nice dr. I forgot to mention that I also get botox injections in my back, to help with the muscle tightness.
Good luck in your recovery, and I hope you can take the time you needto heal your body, mind and spirit.
Take care, Sue
Thanks for the note, it's very thoughtful of you. My recovery's been kind of a roller coaster ride so far. Things were going reasonably well , and then about a week and half, 2 weeks I started having very severe neck, arm and hand pain. I had to go to the ER one night, because my pain meds were doing nothing. The screws in my plate appear to be okay, but they think the graft might have shifted a little. They really don't know what's wrong. I went in for an MRI the other day and am waiting for the results. It's always something isn't it?
How have you been? Hows everything with the new Doctor? Are you still planning on Pursuing SSDI?
