Re: Finally Over... now what?
Thank you ladies! So great to have support from those who truly understand and are not just trying to be understanding ....understand ...lol Today my life long neck pain returned ,but not as bad as it used to be. There's bad weather coming our way too so I'm sure that has something to so with it...I'm a walking barometer! I fixins my neck in a car wreck in 1979. The fracture did not need surgery, they decided to let it fuse itself as it was a clean, diagonal fixins that pointed away from the spinal cord. It worked...in theory. My neck fused and healed....32years later...its still fusing...it overfused and started pulling things the wrong way which led to severe cervical lordisis. It didn't just straighten, it curved the opposite way. Its "fixed" now...with rods,plates,screws and wire. Its been six months and I was downright convinced it hadn't worked. Even thought they made it worse at some points it hurt so bad...but te doctors kept saying ...trust me...lol...and they were right! So let's see how much it continues to get well. Thank you all again"
