Discussions that mention valium

Spinal Cord Disorders board

Hi Jay,I know exactly how you feel,the surgery scared the daylights out of me too,the spine is like the core of your being,and you really have to have faith in the Doctor that does the surgery,that and a valium helps,hahano really its understandable,but anything that takes care of that untouchable pain,is worth it.As for getting though it,well it takes some time,I think the fact that the collar was always there to remind me,made it harder,but it also reminded me to take it easy afterwards,try your best to relax,and make things around your home easier to handle,so you dont have to reach up,or make more trips then ya have to,to the store ect....write and let us knowhow everything is going,I check the board at least twice aday,take care Diana
