Hey!…you made it! Welcome! Welcome!
For our members that may not realize what you are referring to in some of your post…"californiagail"…was responding to a very old post written way back in 2007, and I invited her to repost the information here, and introduce herself!
California!…Thank You so much for reposting your information here with us! We certianlly Welcome you here, and any information and support you would like to share with us. We always appreciate it!
It sounds like you have had a ton of health issues with your spine, and I find a lot of truth is what you have shared with us. I too have had spine surgery, and mine was a double lumbar fusion. Same as you, I also live in constant pain on a daily bases, and boy!…does it ever wear the soul out!
At the moment my Dr is working on setting me up with a surgeon to have a possible pain pump implanted. I'm at the place that the Oxycodone products have built up a tolerance, and not doing much good for relief anymore.
I'm also a couple or three years behind you in age, and I agree that age may indeed have something to do with possibly better results and better healing from this type of surgery. Are you on any sort of medication to help you with pain relief?…and if so would you consider sharing the information with us?
Again Welcome to the forum, and enjoy!…PS: I have family in the UK…so Im curious as to where in the UK that you live.
