I'm BACK!!!
« on: February 18, 2012, 01:14:20 PM »
Hey everybody!!  Thanks for all the kind words and encouragement with my recent surgery.  I had a two level fusion surgery in my lower back on Tuesday.  They had to go in from the front and rear, so I'm dealing with a few complications from the gut part, but at least I'm back home and back on here!!

Looking forward to getting caught up with all the posts and new members.

Thank you all again very much, you're the best!!

Oh its good to hear from you.  I"ve been wondering how it was going with you.   My hubby has had that surgery along with five others on his back.    Did they put a gazillion staples in you too? 

I"ve had back surgery also.   

Heal up fast .  And pay attention to your PT instructions they do matter down the line.

On particularly rough days when I'm sure I can't possibly endure, I like to remind myself that my track record for getting through bad days so far is 100% and that's pretty good.

Thank you!  I don't think they put staples, it looks more like a few stitches and a bunch of superglue maybe?  I hope your husband has a good and full recovery.  I'm having a problem with my gut working again and hiccups that are INTENSE!!

Thanks again for your kindness!!

Glad to hear from you and you're back okay. Back okay no pun intended. Good luck on your recovery. Surgery stinks but I can say the only time I got it in the rear was when I got the bill.
