Chutzie and everyone,
I want to wish you all a Merry Christmas. I know that lower pain levels aren't in most of our cards over the coming days, with family, visiting, cooking, cleaning, wrapping and cleanups ahead, but I also know that the warmth in your hearts will be shared with those that you love and those that love you. I count all of you among those that I love and I hope the feelings are mutual.
ENJOY those smells, those songs, the chaos, the clutter and the visits with loved ones, and when it is all over, come back and tell us all about those wonderful times shared with loved ones.
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL!

On going back pain and neuropathic pain, failed back surgery, consult for scs, decided not to do that at this point.
Adhesive Arachnoiditis also......just what I didn't need..9/08- adding bilateral ulnar neuropathy with severe compression to the mix. They want me to see a surgeon for ulnar nerve surgery, but I'm not biting.
I've seen enough surgeons over the last few years.
