I don't think either of us will ever have a full working body anymore. I guess we need to settle for pain-free and most parts working??? Sad but true. The best we can be. Mind and body. Will be thinking about you. Take the time you need to recuperate fully.
Whatever I don't know, I research the heck out of.
The second set came back normal but there was a different technician interpreting the films.
Nevertheless, I set up an appointment to see the doc on Tuesday to discuss this.
The antibiotics that I am taking could have cleared up the "situation" in my lung(who knows at this point).
Sadly, you are correct Grasshopper; ourv bodies will never be the same but we can hope for the best.
Funny thing; the stimulator is flowing current in the exact location I have the weakness.
Am in pain from the surgery but the meds are helping(Tylenol #3 is laughable but the Percocet seems to do the job;only if I take 2 at a time).
I'm praying for both you and your husband.
Daggone cervical is bothering the heck out of me also; hoped to have posted more.
We will talk soon.
