Hey Guys, I know it's been awhile since I've been here. Hubby *CC* thought it might be a good idea to post and see if any of you have had disk replacement. Some of you may know that I had a disk in my neck replaced about 5 weeks ago. If you had the surgery, how long afterwards did you experience pain, or did you find instant relief? I've got the same pain that I had pryor to my surgery, in fact I feel worse than before!!! I start physical therapy on Tuesday, so I'm hoping that that will give me some relief. I've still got the burning in my arm, down my back shoulder blade and nerve pain in my fingers. It throbs like something is stabbing me up in under my finger nails in my hand. It hurts and I'm so tired of hurting. and of course I get no encouragement from my loving j.w. family!
Have any of you had anything simular to this? If so, how long did you start feeling like a human afterwards?
I'm sorry it's been awhile since I've been here. I really don't feel like I have the right to even post since I haven't posted in such a while. So if I get no replies, I'll understand.
I'm just really fustrated, I've broke down crying several times in fustration and CC thought maybe some of you guys might be able to give me some encouragment. Does it get better?
Down in the dumps, Tink
