Re: Shawley

Vette - He has an appt today with the neurosurgeon and a new pm doctor. He is supposed to find out about the implant today.

He wanted me to let you know that if he does not get back on today that you and your surgeon are in his thoughts and prayers.

Re: Shawley

I know he has!! I have been praying several times a day for him. You know we could all use prayers.......this back stuff can be discouraging at times. I hope that by the end of summer we all will be at the beach drinking those coladas together.

Re: Shawley

[COLOR="Navy"]LOL.

It's not the days, it's the weeks that I'm missing. How can it be march...I'm still looking for Nov in hope that I can really decorate the house....sigh.

I do hate the lack of energy that I have. I have the best intentions, but then I poop out . Twice a week it's therapy, then dinner -we are now at about 9pm when finished..if I get in the hot tub...there is no time. Working +40 a week doesn't help either I know....

OK don't whining. I prefer cheese with my whine thank you very much![/COLOR]

Awww , you guy's are to sweet..You don't know how happy it feel's to be thought of like this ,thanks.

My surgeon said I'm fused in front ,fused on the sides ,and have spotty fusing on the back of my spine , That was great new's ! The bad new's is there's somthing going on below my fusion that doesn't look good . He also said when I get the permanent implant he will remove my hardware , take a look at my L4-S1 and do what need's to be done if anything. I guess it's good new's in a way..I had to grab my surgeon and ask him please check out my films NOW while I'm here and explain it to me..He did and I'm glad because he seem's concerned about that level below for some reason???

The new PM doctor I talked to about the stimulator also feel's I could get some relief from it , but also warned me that it may only give me relief for a year maybe longer . But I think I'll let my primary PM doctor do it since he's a little closer to my home. My surgeon told me he'e doing the implant if the trial work's and does use the paddle leads.. I was stuck with a needle to check my nerves in my left foot and leg and couldn't feel it , now the right leg felt it pretty darn good . Told me I had some nerve damage and weakness in my leg & foot. Like I didn't already know that .

Anyway , thank's for caring and asking about me..Your all my favorite people in the cyber world . [/B][/COLOR]

Re: Shawley

Shawley has fusion! Shawley has fusion!! Gosh darn it why couldn't he tell you that over the phone and save you from all this worrying? Ughhhhh!!

I am so happy for you, buddy!!

As terrible as this may sound, I am happy that your surgeon may have found the source of your pain. Sure nobody wants pain or for the surgeon to find anything else but at least you know the cause of your pain and he might be able to fix it. Right??

So have they implanted alot of these??? Is it typical that the implants only work for a year???

Shawley, I think overall you should be feeling better. Yes??

Pepper ,
YEA !!! But he told me this before. But I think he's right because on my MRI I can see it now. I had to go to Berwick anyway to see this new PM Dr. so I'm glad I was there to force feed my MRI/ CT's on him before I left.

My surgeon has done a few of these implant's , I truly trust my surgeon that he will do the best job possible for me. Pretty kool guy , he like's paintball war's, playing football , sky diving ect.. he's just like me, but has more Money.

What I meant to say about the length of the stim , it could only last a year /months or a couple years if it works. He explained how they do the proceedure and it's very interesting , they do it through the epidural needle, they feed a wire lead through it up to the T9(where ever that is) and turn it on till you get relief. Pretty amazine huh?

I have to have this stuff done ASAP because my oldest daughter is getting married on a Island in Maryland in June ,and I couldn't miss it..
So unless they plan on it soon I'll have to wait and suffer till after June , my surgeon alway's get's me in very quickly so I'm sure it will be soon.

Pepper I'm feeling a little better I guess, atleast I know there is somthing causing my pain and I'm not just a big ole sissy , the PM doctor ask if I was origanlly from the South ! Said I been born a Yank all my life. He said I had a southern Draw ?? I said it must be Hill Billy ,I live in a redneck area...

Glad your up and moving around , warming up today 38deg [/B][/COLOR]

Re: Shawley

Shawley
I am so happy for you that things are finally going your way. I sure hope the implant works well for you.

I am concerned about the level that may have problems but I agree with Pepper at least you got the answers that you need.

Congrats-it is worth all the pain and hard work.

Hope you have a wonderful week-end
