medical days

Wednesday, June 02, 2010

this week has been full of medical appts. At my infusion today I asked if they would measure my height. I have lost 2" due to the fusions I have had. that's seems to be a lot, but there is no disk space anymore I guess. I thought my slacks were getting long enuf to walk on. Ha.

    I know what you mean my medical appoints i am the same way. But I can't understand why you lost hieght after a fusion. I have 16 back surgeries mostly consinting of fusions and loooking at another one or two and I have not lost any of my hight In fact I gained 2 inches in hight cause b back is more stragter with all the fusion.

    Hmmmmmmm! Glad I didn't lose 2 inches with each of my fusions-I would be 4'10" and I am already vertically challenged. Good luck with shortening you slacks!

    I didn't realize fusions would make one shorter. I've had 2 in my neck, guess that accounts for my 2" drop!
