hi,i havnt been here in a while but i used to use this as a support system or to gain some info on what i was going thru,
well first after reading your pain issue it just made me think back on how worried i was,ive has since sept. 06
five surgurys,first one a emergency surgury,left with a titanium plate in my neck,throat,what ever.it was like evry three months i was in surgury,mine is related to no education and long years of hard work,and in 06 it started that summer with just pain in my arm,and snowballed from there.i was just as scared as all of you,i couldnt walk thru a market with my wife to shop and a few steps later i would get pain shooting up my leg like a long knife was being shoved there.
well ive had two surgurys in my neck cause when he was in there he seen other discs that was dameged BUT!!! they werent bothering me,low and behold they started to bother me,so severe that for two weeks i cried with pain even on some hard core drugs,so they founf exactly what the problem was and did a disectamy,as was my back two disectamys and finally a fusion.well before that believe me they tried everything even the floating in the water thing with wieghts on my ankles,ive never been so happy that i went thru all the surgurys,im basicly mostly back to normal,if i do to much i hurt the next day......well thats my problem i still work around the house even tho im disabled now,my hand and my arm has a lot of nerve damege that will never heal,but god stayed with me all the way thru...
i know...get to the point......well dont let all the people here having problems get to you or scare youits going to take time to heal,it will hurt for a while,maybe even longer then you think,but they did there job,i trust the medical field greatly for what they have done for me and the hand of jesus guilding there experianced hands to heal me....
put it this way all the people that have been cured you wont hear about them because they have got on with there lives.just like when i was in pool therupy everyone there was there because of issues....DO YOU REALLY THINK I WOULD HEAR GOOD NEWS IN A POOL FULL OF PEOPLE IN PAIN.its just like here you think they would be here if there wasnt a problem.it discourges you, i wish a few people who got thru with it and are leading good lives would come back once and a while to give hope!!
