Red face Temporary Release From ER..Just Wanted To Update

Thank You to everyone for your concern and advice. I went to the ER and have to go back tomorrow.
The x-rays showed a definate change in all three discs but it also showed a possible screw(?) pin(?) or some type of hardware from my surgery. I took in all the records from my surgery and the docs are hesitant to do an MRI until they know for sure just what my Ortho did. Unfortunately I have 5 files which is a lot of paperwork.
They were going to try injections to relieve some of the swelling, they told me that might be why I am incontinent. Only I cannot tolerate any type of steroids. The first time I was given steroids at the very beginniing of my injury, I barricaded myself into my apartment because I was hallucinating that the SWAT Team was coming for me!!
That was very scary even if it is funny to me now. That was when I found out that an allergic reaction to steroids usually manifests in a psychotic break.(some fun)
Anyway, I go back in tomorrow morning so I can meet with a Neurologist and another Ortho.
I still have some bladder control, but I am in the the closest thing to diapers that you can get. I get more control when the pain decreases (on its own not medicated).
Tonight I could care less what they do to me tomorrow. I am in so much pain that I am maxing my meds, using my ice machine that circulates cold water across my back constantly and counting the hours until I can go back in.
To make matters worse I have been trying to reconcile with my soon to be ex and even though he says he understands how much pain I am in all he wants to talk about is wether I think we can have sex tonight or not.
And did I mention that my 19yr old daughter who lives with me has gone into rehab and I now have custody of her 9month old son?
He is the cutest thing and I love him more than life but he weighs 19lbs (well baby check up today) and there is no way you can tell a 9month old that Grammy hurts too bad to hold him.

Well just wanted to update those who were asking and needed to blow off some steam. Again thanks all for your concern. I am so glad I found these boards and a huge group of caring people that don't make me feel like I am a mistake.

Hello,

I hope everything goes well for you tomorrow, wow you have alot going on right now, My children don't really understand what I am going through either and they are 12 and 9. I use to be a active mom, I would ride bikes, play soccer, we woudl go for walks but not now, it's so hard for them to understand. I wish you luck with your Grandson, wow what a great age, I miss that age. I hope everything goes well for your daughter as well. And no comment on your ex, my DH asked me the same thing earlier, yeah right he wishes, lol, my pain level is crazy today and that is the last thing on my mind and to be honest has been for a long time.
Take care and good luck tomorrow!
Linda

I have been w/o a computer for a few days and missed out. I am so sorry all of this is going on and I wish I could help. All I can say is I wish you all the best and hope you get some pain relief. Tell your STBE to LAY OFF! I have to do that to hubby every now and then when he gets horny and I hurt. I also tell him to go take a shower.
Anyway, I hope your appointment goes as good as it can and that you will soon be with less pain.
