Just to give you a short version of me: I had the Anterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion (ALFI) on 1/29/08 and I was suppose to be finished up on 2/12/08 with the Posterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion (PLIF) but I came down with an infection around my abdominal incision and it is being treated with antibiotics for 3 weeks.
I have been getting terrible spasms in my lower back and down my legs and nothing seems to help it. I have sit all day with a heating back behind me. I put my surgery off a long time. I was seeing my doctor for 2 neck surgeries, 1 elbow surgery and now the lower back. I also need to get an elbow surgery and surgery for carpal tunnel. He wanted to do the carpal tunnel and the elbow surgery first but my back had gotten so bad I could hardly stand for any length of time.
It has been nice talking with you.
Hi Linda it is great to meet you. I am so sorry you have to go through all that with your back surgeries and other ones as well. I pray that the infection will be healed and that your next surgery will be a sucess. I am gald you remember me, I do not think any one else does because my name changed. But you, take care and thanks so much for responding.
