Surgery Tuesday.....AGAIN

Two years ago I had a cervical laminectomy, which I honestly believe triggered my fibro. Well now I need to have a disc replacement at the same disc. I'm worried sick that this could make my fibro worse.
Just in need of some support and prayers. Thanks.

Re: Surgery Tuesday.....AGAIN

How are you feeling? What did the doctor say? How long for the recoop? How is the Fibro acting with this?

Re: Surgery Tuesday.....AGAIN

The fibro is doing fine so far. I was achy all over yesterday and thought "Oh No". But I guess that is to be expected after major surgery. I'm feeling a little sore in my neck and chest area from the tubes and anesthesia, and muscles being moved around, but nothing I can't handle. The doctor didn't say much about the recoup time, just to use my common sense, and not to over do it. I'm thinking about 3weeks, but I'll play it by ear. Luckily I work for myself so I don't need to worry about rushing back to work. I already started driving my kids down to the bus stop, just 2 streets away. I wont drive any further for about another week.

Re: Surgery Tuesday.....AGAIN

Glad your surgery went well.

I had C1 C2 laminectomy 10 years ago for chiari malformation, and that was the beginning of all this pain for me too.

Re: Surgery Tuesday.....AGAIN

I had to have C2, C3, C4 replaced 10 years ago as well. The FM came afterwards, though I always associated it with the wreck that caused the discs to have to be replaced. I've been told I have bone spurs all in that area now. Elle, that had to be awful to be told the surgery had to be repeated. Sure hope your recovery is quick.

Sorry I haven't gotten back to yah. Been feeling real fibrocruddy lately

How are you doing now? Don't push it!! You don't want to go into a flare if you haven't already wich I d*****ately DO NOT WISH ON YOU!

Got my Mri back, still have compression at c4-c5 BUT it hasn't gotten worse..THANK GOD!! Just started some PT W/ Trigger Point Injections. The doc said my Upper Trapazoid Muscles or something like that are extremely tight. Whatever it is, yes it is tight!!!

Take it easy, take time for yourself, get some rest, take a nice bubble bath and think of YOURSELF!!

Keep us updated on your recoop!!

(((Gentle Huggs)))
