As you all have most likely noticed, I have been pretty much MIA over the last few months. I am sooo excited to announce that I should now be around more often!!! Last Tuesday, I had to be admitted to the hospital due to the acute pain caused by sciatica. They did another MRI on me and the surgeon said that she was in total shock that I was functioning on any level since the disc fragments had more than tripled in size. She suggested immediate surgery for me and warned me that there may be complications due to the nerve damage and nerve compression I had been suffering with for almost 3 years. I felt that anything would be better than what I had been going through and I am soo happy to announce... that upon waking up from the surgery... it is like having a full recovery!! The pain is gone! The numbness is gone!! I have actually stood up "straight" and walked a short distance with absolutely no problem!!! Of course, I know I can not overdo it since she had to remove part of my spine to get the 6 huge fragments out without damaging the nerves or the sac holding them. Eventually, I will have my spine fused in that location but until then... I can finally function on a somewhat normal level and can get busy scrapping once again!!!!
