I was just wondering how you were doing after your surgery. I know you had some problems with it and the recovery. I was just wondering how you were feeling. Better I hope. Let us know how you're doing. In the meantime I'll keep you in my prayers for a speedy recovery.

Hi!

I am doing alot better lately. I had gone back to the dr

because of pains and he wouldn't give me any "good" pain meds

but he did give me toridol, which is ok. He

said I have 'sacrilitis' in my lower back and that's why I kept having

pains beyond surgery. I was still upset with him for thinking

I should be pain free by then. It was only 2 weeks since the

surgery, and everyone heals differently. Time is going

by so fast. Before I know it, it will be time to go back to work

and I'm scared to being that I have to lift and transfer patients

all day long. If I just had an office job I don't think i'd

be so worried about returning.

The Dr set me up with a neurologist to see what we

can do about the sacrilitis. The neuro may tell me not to go back to

work there. I guess I'll find out.

Thank you so much for asking.

I'd be mad at your dr too. Pain free in 2 weeks after the kind of surgery you had is unrealistic, even with the new techniques. I've had four friends have the same sgy in the last two years, and NONE of them were pain free in two weeks. They all complained of abdominal and/or lower back pain for at least 6 weeks afterwards. Their drs said it was normal and gave them descent meds.

Ya, see what your Nuero has to say. Maybe he'll be more realistic. I hope you're feeling better soon Honey.

Peace,
