Hi all ,
One week tomorrow since l5 si
Spinal fusion anterior and pedicles screws posteriorly .
I'm feeling ok just concerned about pains , numbness ,
Hip and leg pains ( feel like nerve type )
Anyway would be good to talk to someone who's in the same place as me or anyone with past experience .
A little down today , raining outside which is putting me off doing my small walk to get coffee !
It's so hard to be reading so many horror stories !
It's hard to be facing the long road of recovery as I've been unable to exercise and walk for over a year already . My body is taking the toll and my stomach looks like it's 6 months pregnant after surgery .
I have never felt so unattractive , I know all this is a passing phase ( I hope ! ) I do have flashes of positivity though and I am looking fwd to the future . The drugs have an effect I'm sure , OxyContin mainly and a breakthrough pain killer called ocynorm .
Anyway that's me for now , back to my box set !
