Thank you so much your replies Vicki and White Beard I really appreciate you both taking the time.
I have had back/leg pain since I was a child mine is due to a traumatic birth. I got stuck in my mothers birth canal and came out feet first. They pulled me out not too "gracefully". I have had pain my whole life and was told at 17 that I would wheel chair bound by 21 however I became a top athlete despite the pain and was able to have three babies and was able to walk upright.
I have had probably 30 plus epidural blocks .. I stopped counting. I have had the little " trims " where the nerves were being impinged upon. This last surgery honestly I guess I never took it that serious because I never took my "condition" serious I smile through it and toughen up through it !! It is scaring me to read all of this ... Maybe I need to be scared and not take it lightly ??
I feel really good though ... I am walking upright since my last surgery and feel ok ... The only reason they couldn't do it all is the surgery would be too long .
To answer your question. The surgeon said "it is not a matter of if , it is a matter of when" so for me I think I am on the meds now I only want to kick them once. So why not now ? Also I have someone to help me. I also have a son who is 17 with autism who trust this person. I have the finances lined up as well.
I am very scared because I feel "ok" but that might be the meds.
Thank you again for all that you do !! So happy to have found you !! Have a wonderful day :)
I have made some paragraphs in your post to make it easier to read. Some of our members have tracking problems when reading. Thanks.
