Thankfully I had a really great doctor who performed the surgery, The tumor was benign but I had 6 weeks of radiation because some couldn't be removed without causing motor problems. Now I think the radiation is coming back to haunt me........when they did the MRI of my neck, they found nodules on my thyroid, an ultrasound showed they are quite large and now I'm off to see an Endocrinologist for a biopsy and then I go from there.........since this all started, it's been one step/day at a time emoticon

Oh no, I hope the infection gets better soon. PT is still going good. My therapist works on my neck each time I go in. I can't use the "traditional" traction, which is basically stretching the neck, methods because many years back, I had a brain tumor at the base of my neck and I'm missing part of my skull back there so he has to stretch my neck manually. emoticon

Still in recovery mode, with a step backwards: I have an infection at the incision site, so I am back on antibiotics. I am still taking it very easy.
I hope you are doing well with your PT. Keep me posted!

So glad to hear your are doing better. That was a big stone! I'm glad the biopsy came back negative. Yes, very scary until you know the results and then it's like a big weight has been lifted. It's good that you are doing a little bit, try not to over-do it until you are fully healed. Sometimes that's easier said then done, lol. The food thing, now that's another story.......

I got 10 today.

I am so glad you are doing better. Post-op visit this morning: the surgeon is allowing me to drive and to resume my normal life, although very slowly. No exercise and no lifting anything over 10 pounds until the end of the month. The biopsy was negative, and I am very relieved as you can imagine. They found gangrene and thickened walls on the gallbladder, and a stone measuring 6 cm x 4 cm x 3 cm. Fatigue is due to general anesthesia and should disappear if I continue to take it easy. I can eat anything, but my body will tell me if it likes it... i.e I must be prepared to find foods that will not agree with me.

I'm glad you are doing better now. So scary when out of the blue something happens....like with my neck. I didn't do anything and all of a sudden, in the middle of the night, pain so bad I couldn't move and it made me cry.
Still going to PT, it seems to be helping quite a bit. Still get some numbness/tingling in my arm but it so much better than what it was. emoticon

Thank you - recovering slowly. I was hit out of nowhere with acute pancreatitis and had to have my gallbladder removed as an emergency. Ambulance, terrible pain, three days in the hospital pumped with antibiotics, perfect nightmare. I am hoping all will be back to normal by the end of this week.

Thanks for the titles, I will check them out. It am glad you had a great session. Twice a week is good. Did they give you exercises to do at home as well?

I got Rebuild your Neck & Rebuild your Back and a pain management book by Dean Moyer. A little pricey $40 for all three but they have really good information the exercises are good. I had my first day of PT and some of the stretches they showed me are in his book on Rebuild your Neck.......
Like I said before, they are PDF e-books you can download right to your computer, which I really like because from there, I can send the books to my Kindle and always have the exercises with me.

PT was good, the spent about an hour with me. I'm sore, but in a good way emoticon My next appointment is Thursday and they want to see me twice a week for now.......

I was told about 45 minutes......I'm really looking forward to starting :-)

I ordered an e-book (PDF file) the other day on "rebuilding" your neck. So far it's had some good information and different stretching techniques. I've been doing light yoga to help stretch & strengthen my neck & back too and it seems to be helping. The pain is getting more tolerable each day but I'm still taking motrin though cause I start aching.

12 sessions! This is great. I am so happy for you. How long do they last?
Yes $$$ for me, and it is because I live in an expensive area...
My insurance is also lousy.
I had pain from the neck down to my fingers (right side). Shoulder, arm, and fingers are fine now, but my neck is still stiff and hurts.

That's the odd thing, I have absolutely no pain in my neck at all, it's all been in my shoulder blade and down my right arm & hand........so yes, I can still turn my head easily.
Wow, that's a lot of $$. My insurance approved 12 sessions so I need to make the best of each session.

Two discs? oh, I feel for you! Yes PT will help. They made me work with rubber bands, and it was good. They also gave me several movements to do against a wall. But I had to stop after 6 sessions because my insurance would not cover it, and the sessions (one hour each time) were $225 a pop! Bummer.

Can you turn your head easily? I still do not have full extension on the left side...

It hasn't been fun, that's for sure! The MRI shows two herniated disks in my neck and I don't have the normal curvature in my neck. The good news is both can be corrected with PT, so off to start that next week. Things are getting better. The pins/needles in arm and hand isn't nearly as bad as it was and my arm strength is coming back slowly. Still taking it easy, for the most part. Last week we took a camping trip (in the motorhome) and did a few easy hikes, but mostly relaxed. It was nice to get away.
Hope you have been doing good!!

Herniated disc is the pits. I had one last fall at the base of my neck and it pinched a nerve. It went down to the tips of my fingers and I was in agony, so I can really relate to what you are feeling... Taking it easy is very wise.
I hope the MRI will tell you more.

Have a good and quiet week end!

yeah, herniated disk, it goes by so many different names it starts to sound like you have many different problems, lol.
I got the MRI scheduled for next Tuesday. They had an opening tonight at 8:30, that's really late for me but if I was still in that awful pain I would have gone. I took the final steroid Wednesday morning and I'm still getting relief, taking it very easy, I don't want to make anything angry emoticon

Good news, it's not a shoulder tear like what was originally thought with the first MRI. My Orthopedic doctor said he highly doubts there is anything wrong with my shoulder at all but he believes it's a pinched nerve in the C5/C7 vertebrae of my neck. He is doing another MRI, this time of my neck and wants to get me started in physical therapy, so hopefully I'll hear something this week, just waiting on the insurance approval.
He started me on a six day dose of steroids and they have worked amazing! I'm still in pain, but nothing like last week or when this first started and I actually almost feel human again, lol.

Yea!! I heard back from my Insurance Monday about the re-direct, I got to choose the Orthopedic doctor I wanted and made an appointment to see him Friday. I wish I could've gotten in sooner but Friday is good. I spent last weekend researching different doctors and he had good ratings. emoticon

I called my insurance Friday for a re-direct referral to a different doctor, they just called to let me know they are working on it and I should hear something soon.....fingers crossed.

500 sparkgoodie points!!

I got the MRI results yesterday.....it's called a SLAP tear......it's where the cartilage between the socket & ball of the shoulder tears. Everything else looks good, I got a copy of the report and a cd of the images. I was looking at the images last night and thankfully their are little arrows where the tear is or I'd have no idea what I'm looking at, lol. Next step is going to see an orthopedic (sports medicine) doctor. Hopefully this week.

Thank you!! I had the MRI done Tuesday and I go back to my doctor Monday morning for the results. It's takes a few days for the report to be done. I'm nervous but it is what it is..... I took it easy all week and rested as much as I could, taking 600 mg ibuprofen and it at least takes away the sharpness of the pain. emoticon emoticon

Thank you!! I had to quit taking the pain meds......they were making me so sick, I couldn't function and I was only taking one before I went to bed and they are basically a tylenol with codine! I'm just taking mortin ib & using ice several times a day. It helps somewhat, still a lot of pain but at least I'm not sick. That was awful, sick & in pain, lol. emoticon
