I’ve been stuck in a funk
Saturday, March 30, 2019
I’ve struggled with progressively worsening back pain since late August. This has severely limited my ability to walk, bend or stand for more than a few minutes at a time. I’ve seen my PCP, chiropractor, done two months of physical therapy, had steroid injections in my spine and had nerve ablation in my back with little to no results.
So I broke down & saw a second spinal surgeon this week. After a long discussion with him, looking at my xrays & MRI I’ve decided to have back surgery. This is not something I’m going into lightly. There is too much pain along with being essentially house bound to live like this.
I’ve heard bad results from people having the surgery but I’ve also heard success stories. I feel like I’ve done all I could up to this point. The depression this has brought to my life is debilitating. I refuse to live the rest of my life with these severe physical limitations.
Surgery is scheduled for May 7th. I would love it if I could get a few prayers for a successful surgery and great healing.
