Yes, Molly I have. Got to feeling great a few months ago. In fact I told a friend I couldn't remember feeling so good. Then wham!!! For about two months now I've been totally useless.
im so sorry :( i no what you mean, the past few months have been miserable, praying for you!
Hi Molly and CW....yup same here...I really think this crazy weather is affecting all of us...up in the 50's one day and below 0 the next morning....just too much of a drastic change.
May I ask what area is the worst for either of u...for me it is my lower back....it is just not letting me do much....I am slowly getting back to doing a few simple things, but I am still using a heating pad....
It was a good month of laying flat on my back....and just sitting hurt so bad....forget walking...I am able to sit now so I am glad for that, just trying to figure this all out.
I understand You guys. I feel terible!
im sorry selma! for me i have just not been able to control my head, i thought it was all the traveling but i still havent recovered and im sleeping a tone! and im never like that! i am usually up at 630 every day just cause i cant sleep and never take naps and ive been taking three hour naps and sleeping till 930, or 10 every day i dnt no what the deal is
Did they rule out instability?.....
thanks.....I am pretty sure what is going on....just waiting on my new INS cards and info so I can get to a Dr.
I so feel u . I had surgery dec 4th. and man it is kicking me down
U also have to keep in mind u just had surgery, it does take time to heal....and by time I mean after we rest,rest and then rest some more it can take months b4 we are doing simple things around the house....u have to listen to ur body as to what it needs, but u also have to know what underlying conditions u may have.
i have instability but i thought the fusion was supposed to fix that ? ;(
I agree it should, but I have heard of the instability being lower too....not sure if that is a possibility....hope not.
I would imagine more MRI's or xrays...... I know I read someone had a fusion and then found they needed one a bit further down too....not sure that is what is going on...just something I remember reading.
i cant have mris anymore cause of my stimulator. could they see it on a ct?
Nor sure but I don't know why not....can u have an xray? I forgot about ur stimulator....
I have felt bad as well lately. Today especially. My swallowing is bad and my headache is worse than normal. I sometimes wonder what I did to have brought this terrible disease into my life.
Those of you who have been battling this for years and have undergone surgeries, you are my pillar of strength. I pray for all of us to one day be pain free.
i think xray is ok although im suppose to go around security at the airport so maybe not, who knows.... lol
