Back Problems board

I developed bacterial bronchitis post op...it was horrible and caused even MORE pain because of the constant coughing...I truly feel for you. I went through 10 days of antibiotics with no relief...then they put me on the "turbo" pills...hehehe the Zithromax...took a couple of days but it finally killed the "bad bugs" ;)
I hope you get to feeling better soon sweetie :)
Hi Baxter! :wave:

So sorry to hear you are sick. :( At least you know the cough tip now (hehe). Think of all that junk coming up when you cough...prep yourself and give it a good 'hack' (best in a fetal-like position) when you feel one coming on. Get some papertowels and clean out those lungs! hehe :D I agree with 'itsgettingold' Zithromax is the BOMB...didn't you say you got some of that? Or was that someone else? :eek: Anywho, best wishes for speedy recover and drink your orange juice. :) Let some sunshine in (even if raining or snowing where you are). The natural sunlight will help bring your mood up so that your body can fight off this germ-virus-etc. Let the sunshine in... face it with a grin....... frowners always lose..... and smilers always win..... So let the sun shine in! hehe hahahhaha. Take care love.

Hi All, :wave:

Thank you so much for the messages, it really makes me feel better. :bouncing:

Yes, I have the Z-Pak (Zithromax), the doc even gave me two refills, which surprised me and made me happy, I will now have it on hand for the next bout. :D

I have been so very tired [img]http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/tired.gif[/img] and sort of just dragging today. [img]http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/t_down.gif[/img]

I'm counting on feeling better tomorrow, I started the antibiotics on 1/1/03, so I just have to be patient.

I notice that after I wake up, the coughing is pretty loose and coming up, so that is a good thing.
I am worse in the A.M. & P.M.
It must have something to do with the lying down.

Anyway, I want to thank you all once again, you are so very kind and very supportive [img]http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/heart.gif[/img]

Have a super evening,

Two level laminectomy fusion L5-S1 & L2-3 done on 12/6/02.
Fifteen inch scar from the very top of butt crack (sorry), to the bra line.
BAK cages, rods & screws.(Titanium)
My pelvic bone was used for grafting.
Praying that the other two discs in between, won't have to be fused later, as I was told it was a possibility, due to the other two discs in between, not being in that great of shape.
Doc didn't want to fuse four levels, unless it is really necessary.
I would hate to repeat the surgery, as the recovery period, is so very painful.
