13 weeks after and Whoops!
I hope all those folks who have had their surgeries are up reading this board! Meaning, I hope you are all feeling better.
Last weekend I was searching through the fridge. You know looking to graze!
Well, I opened the freezer door(top freezer model). Didn't find anything. So, I opened the fridge door, and squatted down. Yes, you guessed it! The freezer door didn't shut. The freezer door always shuts!
Well, I stood up taking the freezer door with me. Straight across my neck. Electricity all through my body, especially down my spine. I was terrified.
Weekend, no Neuro he's on a little holiday with his family. His, partner calls me back and says "double up on all your meds". If the pain worsens, "I'll be waiting for you at the ER."
Short story long. Nothing got worse, I had an appointment for yesterday. X-ray shows no damage, and I'm 90% fused. Neuro walks in and says "I don't like to redo my perfect surgeries. 2nd surgeries get ugly." His punishment! One more week in the collar.Start doing my weight trainning for sure! The electricity was the pulling of all my weak muscles. He perscribed some tramadol. I feel better, today!
I guess the lesson continues too be. Take it easy and careful even 13 weeks out.
Just some more anxiety to add to the long list. I don't like taking these drugs, but I guess its tramadol, and Xanax for a little while longer.
