Hey everyone,
I think my surgery went about as good as I could have hoped for and I have lots to tell Y'all about it which might help someone in the future but unfortunately, I can't do it today. My Wife is here and is going to have to set up her working computor onto this one which means, I will not be able to post from it anymore today and possibly tomorrow. Please know that I miss you all and am very thankful for all your support and prayers while I was in the hospital! Please all have a peasefull painless time untill I return!
Your Good Friend,
Pete

Pete,
You know what I and others think - take care of yourself! I'm so glad your wife is there to help you. AND am very glad I think I read on your other post something about "no work" for you!! Yippee!! And keep it that way! You want to act on the conservative side. This is about your life and your future. Going back to work too soon could really impact your healing so don't be guilted into it!!

In the meantime, we'll keep sending healing hugs!

(((((((((((((Pete))))))))))))))))

I hope if your wife reads this she understands these are all platonic hugs!! LOL

Pete, I have not posted to you since surgery. I appologize for that. I have been fighting the battle. Any way, I am glad that you feel the relief from the pain that was going down the arm. That is a good sign. It will take a little bit before the pain from the surgery wears off. They told me up front that it would be months. The good news was that it was a different kind of pain and I was able to see the progress with that. I hope you start feeling the encouragement of healing and that you experience a great deal of relief. Keep us posted and stay away from work. Blessings on you and your wife.

Yo-Ho-Ho & a can of black cherry citrus FRESCA!

Yep, it's the only soda water I drink and it really cuts the yuk out of my mouth & throat! Oh, Hello all, it's good to be back! My wife finally finished two days playing catch-up through this home comututor line which as far as I know can only be used by one at a time! No nerd here! Lucky for me, my spousenerd handles the computors! I can't tell you how great I've been feeling, it's almost sureal after having that horrable neck-shoulder-arm pain for so long! That boywonder neurosurgeon was really something. Did I mention he was in there for 5.5 hours? I'm not sure how long it usually takes for a fusion (he descided to only do one instead of 3!) but he told me I had a really big neck to get through as he went through the front. (size #21 neck!) He said that the calcium bone spur was huge which was pinching off the nerves going to my left side out of my spine. He told me he had to grind it off and make a new pathway for the nerves and that even he was suprised that the pain was gone so fast! My neck on the otherhand still feels like it was hit w/ a hatchet and I sound like a frog but the pain is decreasing quite a bit by each day that passes. My biggest pain-problem right now is I haven't had a cig in a week and it's driving me crazy! Anyone remember Andrea? She posted here alot when I started posting and I miss her, she was so nice & smart! Anyway, she too was a smoker and told me to stop feeling so guilty & ashamed about smoking addiction. It helped but I knew in my heart that I was killing myself w/ those dam Newports! The most addictive smoke on the planet in my opinion! My Wonderboy Doc told me if I keep smoking, my fusion w/ the cadaver bone will NOT heal and I believe him. I am the guy who would get up in the middle of the night and stumble into the garage w/o waking my wife to burn one and this happened almost everytime I got up to pee which is usually every hour! GRRRRRR, I'm such a newport junky!!! it's the hardest thing and I want one soooooo bad! Also, my wife is still smoking. I told her I would not bug her because I hated it so much when she and others would do it to me! This is the best chance I have at quitting as I had a 4 day head start in the hospital! I never could just put them down and stop, the last time I quit for over 3 years was after what they called a respitory episode with a bad case of the flue which had me in the hospital for a week on breathing machines & anibiotics. I keep telling myself, I did it then and I can do it now>cold turkey> no sence in even messing w/ any nicotine stuff now! Well, sorry Y'all, I was going to write about how well my surgery went and I'm writing about how bad my cig addiction is!! All for now, I can't sit and type too long before my neck starts acting up. >>>>HUGZ<<<<

LUV YUZE GIZE!!!!

Pete,
As one who used to smoke 3 pack a day (I quit in 1990!) let me tell you it's hard, but your doctor is right about the fusion not working if you keep smoking. It prevents the oxygen from circulating in your body and healthy tissue from developing. The surgeon who did my carpal tunnel surgery years ago told me if someone lost a finger in an accident and they were a smoker he wouldn't bother reattaching it because it would never heal. So here's my advice, friend: nicotene is one of the most potent drugs on the planet. Some studies show it's as potent or maybe more so on the brain than morphine. So don't take it lightly. If I were you I'd get some patches and use them. The cravings are going to come, especially with your wife smoking. Any chance you could quit together?

Just keep remembering - your fusion takes 6months -1 year for the bone to grow. If you're smoking, it probably won't happen, at least not fully, and you don't want to get that pain back do you? And have gone through all this for nothing?

I'm being a bit hard on you because I KNOW how potent nicotene is. There are some good online programs you can also find some support - I think one is Iquit.com (I think), but you can go to the Lung Association and find credible resources. Don't think this will be easy. It's an addiction like any other drug, it's just a legal one. I actually went to some 12 step AA meetings when I first quit (and back then you had to search for non-smoking meetings!). I had to see myself as a nicotene addict before I could really quit.

You go guy! We'll be here to cheer you on!

Hugs and Cheers!,

PaLady

Pete,
Great news about the surgery! Congrats! Glad to hear you're resting.

Good luck quitting smoking. Is there something they can give you to help? This last time my uncle actually successfully quit (4 years without a cigarette) & he used the Catapres patches. I put them on for when I'm going through withdrawals from my pain meds & they really help a lot. He had tried all the nicotine patches in the past, but they never helped. This one did the trick. Plus, I think PALady gave you good advice about joining a support group for quitting smoking - of course, we'll try to support you as well. :)

Anyways, best wishes & I'll be eager to hear the good news when you report back that you've kicked the smoking habit!

peace,
frances

Hi Pete,

I'm so happy for you, that you are continuing to feel better day by day & that your overall pain is much reduced!! I can only imagine how hard quitting cigarette smoking is! I have seen my uncle go through it several times & it was certainly no walk in the park. But at least you have one of the best motivations of all to quit. Just keep telling yourself that if you start up smoking again, you might as well have undone the surgery & gone back to the way you were before, pain & all! And you certainly don't want your old pain back! Oh, no! So hang in there, keep fighting! You can do it! I have faith in you my friend! You will get through this. All of this! Feel free to continue to vent to us all you want! We are here & we are listening!

Yeah Pete,

So glad to see your post tonight!  Yipee....TG for the single fusion....triples are a real pain in the neck...no seriously that is WONDERFUL NEWS!

Keep up the good work on NOT smoking....I see my hubby struggle everyday trying just to cut down, his plan is to give it up by July 1st.  They say trying to quit smoking is worse then giving up Cocaine!

Anyway, please continue to take it EASY, I know thats a toughy for you.

Pete
Glad to hear that things are going so good, I know it is a real bear to quit smoking, I was a smoker once, I quit a very very very long time ago, I quit smoking and took up dipping, Copenhagen no less, none of that sissy mint flavored tobacco for me in my mouth!  I wanted the real tobaccao taste! You know just a pinch between the cheek and gum. I dipped for many years, and you know you can dip in place you can't smoke! Heck even in the shower just spit it down the drain!! The only thing harder to quit than smoking is dipping, honestly,  but it can be done, as I have quit both, I haven't dipped since 1985, You know I never said I quit smoking or dipping till after I went a full year without ever touching it. But I can tell you after working on an Oncology unit, well.............you know you really do need to give the cigs up!
 I wish you all the best Pete! Remember it is just one day at a time!
 
Good Luck to You

Pete, good to hear things are going better. The pain continues to decrease as you continue to heal. That was my experience. The information about smoking being the most addictive drug is correct. I quit a drug addiction, alcohol addiction but smoking was even harder. In the program I now direct, all our students have to be drug, alcohol and tobacco free. I have more problem with the tabacco because it is leagal and acceptable. Do whatever you have to to quit as your health depends on it. You don't want to go through another fusion surgery. Watch out that you don't get addicted to the black cherry citrus FRESCA. I hear withdrawls from it are the worst. lol I keep praying for you. Be blessed.

Pete,

I am in disbelief that something really helps this pain. I have never believed that
anything would help. Not really.

Before I say more about your surgery, I want to talk about nicotine. OMG, I know
how hard it is. I used to quit and I'd end up kind of catatonic and just sitting on the
couch. One time it was so difficult for me to move that I almost couldn't pick my
(then) little girl up from school. Terrible. Horrible. Almost unbelievable!

I discovered Nicorette Gum about 25 years ago. Since then I've been a chronic
gum chewer. I put it in my mouth so no one even knows. I use the mint so it
doesn't stink. Anyway, it's very expensive. I am so hooked on it no one could
understand. When i don't have it my brain kind of shuts down or something.

I have read that you have to quit smoking (or nicotine) when you have a fusion.
Please don't lecture me here, but I don't know if I can quit the gum. I also
smoke. I will light up a Parliament and step outside. I'll take 3 or 4 puffs and then
take the lit end and snip it off. I smoke about a pack a week.

I have a theory about my smoking that I won't share here because it's way too
boring (and also rather weird)

You went through the surgery which chills my heart. And now you're going through
the withdrawl from Nicotine. Good luck. I'll be back to discuss the surgery a bit
later.

CONGRATULATIONS!
Pamela

I put an ad in the paper hoping to start a support group for gum chewers. I got
two calls. 1) A guy made some pretty funny comments about gum chewing 2)
An MD who was terribly ashamed of himself but wouldn't show up at the meeting
for fear he might be recognized. For heavens sake. Must have been Dr. Oz. You
think?

Thanks all for replying again!
I was locked out of my computor again yesterday as my wife needed it for work all day. Hey, we got to pay the bills right? At least she's still working! I don't have time to respont to each of you as I have to get off again ASAP! Sounds like alot of you know about the nic-demon! He/she almost got me yesterday, I went storming outside w/ a cig and lighter screaming I just can't take it anymore! Then sat down w/ my dog Rose and looked into her beutiful all loving brown hound eyes and the tears just started rolling down my face. She got me through it but it was close! My wife walked out as she was saying something to me as I was on my way out the door yapping, about fusion or the Doc or something which I was paying no attention to at the time. She asked if I did and I shook my head no. Thats all we said about it and as I was going back into the house, I heard her lighter spark and knew what she was doing. I just went in and took a hot shower. The swelling in my neck is hurting against the neck brace this am. I think I may call the Doc about it as I know it's probably just healing, but I can't swallow w/ the brace on today. I had to take it off just to drink coffee! GRRRR! Anyway, my spousal unit, the working one is getting ansy for her comp. Gotto Go!
Bless All Y'ALL and Bib Hugz!

Pete,
Don't know when you'll read this, but it doens't sound like your brace should be so tight as to prevent you from swallowing. Maybe the swelling needs to be checked. I just hope you called your doctor to ask about it!

And get yourself some patches. That nicotene is a tough drug. I also hope your wife maybe rethinks her smoking. It's going to make it more difficult for you when you hear the click of a lighter, smell any second hand smoke, etc. But you hang tough! I know it's tough, too!!

Don't worry about resonding to each one of us, Pete. When you can, just post a brief note, but please have that swelling/collar issue checked out by your doc!

Take care!

Pete,

I'm so glad you are post surgery and that all went well. You deserve good things to happen for you Pete.

Good luck with the smoking. I am praying for you that you stop completely and that you are given courage and strength to do so. It has to be so tough. I am not a smoker so I don't know from personal experience about that but I am an eater and have that addiction to food. That is hard too.

Please continue to keep us up to date. Many, many people here love you.

God bless and gentle hugs.

Pete,

Hang in there First Buddy!

Some research I did for college some years ago indicated that nicotine is 10,000 times more addictive than heroine - for some people.

Yes, nicotine is person-dependent also. I know a woman who could put them down without looking back after smoking for 2 years.

And, of course, others who would almost literally kill if someone took away their smokes at any time. Couldn't stand being without.

All My Good friends,
It's late for me an my wife was on the comp. all day again today. She is sleeping now, probably what I should be doing but I snuck out to write Y'all. It's been a week since my surgery and my last cig. was 8 days ago. I cant believe I made it this long! I had a better day niccotine wise today, at least I didn't loose control like yesterday. Thinking back to yesterday, I think I hit too many triggers and it caught up to me. I had a Dr. apt. w/ PA Doc who thought I had left the country or something! Then I picked up my 2 pairs for $74. glasses I had ordered before my surgery. Then stopped at my Mom's place, 82 yo and smokes like a chimney! Everytime I got in my truck and turned the key, I got that Nica -Jones really bad! Then at Mom's as much as she tried for me to not smoke, I told her to go ahead and blow the smoke at me! I have to learn to live w/ it. I spent 2 hours on the phone there checking on what looked like Identity theft on two of her accounts. I called everyone involve in the company and finally figured out what had happened, I hope! I wrote down every single person's name I talked to just in case, been there done that! Well when I got home around 3:00pm and hadn't eaten lunch, I was shaking, you know that awful feeling some of you probably get when you don't eat? I hate that, I'm a poster boy for Diabetes and am getting checked w/ a fasting blood test next week. Sorry about bouncing around! Back to the cigs, I think it all got to me and I came so close to smoking. Now I'll have to try not to let myself get behind the 8-ball like that again!
Thanks for the comforting words everyone, here are a couple quick replys> PA, you are such a doll! I wish I could use the patches or even the lozengas (I always used those on plane rides) But no such luck. I asked my Doc because I thought it was the low Oxegen from smoking caused the problems. He said true but the drug, nicotene also prevented the bones from growin so no to anything w/ nic in it! Tony, Yes, I know people who are not affected by the addiction of tobacco products, it just amazes me how they just stop and don't think twice. My wife was like that years ago and even now is not even close to being the junky that I am! She told me today that she is stopping by cutting down first. I could never do it that way but I believe she can, I hope!!! She only had 2 or 3 today. Chart, Thanks> I did ice it a couple times today but it didn't help. I am going to call the Doc tomorrow AM if it's still swollen then. Lindaloo!! I love your name! Oh yes, I can relate to the food thing! I most sertainly have a big problem w/ food and I'm pretty sure it's the same type of mind control type of addiction as tobbaco only w/o the drug part. When Poeple who never smoked ask me why I can't just stop, I explain it like this. We as humans have certain things that we do everyday as a part of living. We sleep, we eat, we talk, we have sex(well used to?), we love, and some other smaller things. So try taking away one of the biggies I just listed! To a smoker, smoking is higher on the list that eating & sleeping most of the time for me anyway. Get the picture? Take one of those things away from you all of a sudden and how would you feel?It's such a big part of my living and add to that the withdraw which kicks in after only an hour or so!!! My lungs feel like your stomac does when you haven't eaten for a day or more, just dying for the smoke to fill this hunger like feeling they get. Sometimes they feel like they are going to just stop working if I don't get a cig soon! W.B. Patti & Bluejet thanks for the kind words of encouragement, I'm trying to play it cool, like my boy Cool Hand Luke!
Good night all and big hugz from a tobacco free Florida?
Your "Cool Boy" Friend,
