Well it's official I m getting a spinal fusion. It should b happening either the last wk of April or the 1st wk of May.
Monday I will drop paper work off to my primary care dr, then its just a matter of waiting 4 a phone calls. I have to have some pre admission testing done. They r overly concerned with infection due to my weight but I have a good support system in place that will help me. Including a niece who is a home health aide.
It does freak me out when they go over all the possible complications that's y when I was in my late 20's I told a dr no about this surgery. It also bothers me that they have to slice thru my tattoo.
I still have 2 schedule the mri 4 the pinched nerve in my neck.
It's getting 2 b a bit much now - I had these pains 4 so long n now 2 find out all these reasons. It seems that every problem that I have has multiple reasons.
If I can give any1 advice out there ALWAYS FOLLOW UP WITH UR HEALTH CARE ISSUES even if u have 2 apply 4 Charity care
I have ppl staying with which is gonna turn out to be a good thing cause they will be dealing with La. Well it is 1 of her Godmoms so that helps plus another Godmom lives 2 houses up from us.
I will keep every1 posted - now back 2 braiding Palms
