I mainly post in the Chronic Pain section but also a little here. I've already made this post there but would like to here also since this added to my already deepening depression

Saturday night I left my house buy groceries with my girlfriend (was only my best friend and roommate when I joined the site). As we were leaving my leg went out and I fell to the ground. The employee helping us take our food to the truck tried to help me up. I had an extreme amount of pain and told him not to move me at all. I was taken to the hospital by an ambulance and have been there ever since.

When I fell I fractured my elbow trying to catch myself, but had no other injury from it. The pain in my back came from one of the herniated discs (L4-L5) tearing even more as I was walking. I had an emergency discectomy and it seems to have helped as I still have control of my legs, bladder, and bowls. As of now it's just a waiting game to see if they believe I need any other surgery.

I am in a lot less pain then I have been in years but that is most likely due to the morphine pump they have given me control of (also why I may be making quite a few grammar or spelling errors so bare with me lol). I've never really had Christmas since I my early teens as my parents are gone and I have only my three sisters who live in the country (rest of my family live in Europe) so I'm not really upset about that. I just don't enjoy the fact that I may be here that long.

I would like to ask those who believe in prayer to please keep me in yours and those who do not keep me in your thoughts. Thanks for all the support you guys have given since I have been here.

Sam

Hi Sam.. I'm fairly new so I don't know you yet. But I feel awful about your unfortunate accident. I will be praying for you and a quick recovery. And remember to use that morphine drip. I sure do miss it! Lol.

I will certainly keep you in my thoughts and prayers Sam and I can empathize big time with what it is like to both be in the hospital for a long time (once spent right at a month and one year I spent over 2 months total) and also being in the hospital over Christmas as a few years ago I had my appendix removed on X-mas eve.

I can't express how much I appreciate all of your replies; they really mean a lot to me in more ways than I can express. I have been informed that I could have nerve damage and will not be able to walk without a can. This has set me back emotionally quite a bit as my passion involves me being on stage but I have lost control of my right foot. I know there are many others that are worse off but I still feel awful and just down right depressed from it. Nothing is set in stone yet but I plan to make the best of it and work my butt off and maybe just maybe I'll regain use in my foot. Thank you for all your thoughts and praries, they are still needed as I'm due to be in this hospital for another 2 weeks as that have to remove another disc. I have friends and my girlfriend but they have no idea what it's like and you do and I believe that's what I need right now. On the upside, I have nearly finished my publication while here (of course I'll probably have to redo it since it was written via morphine drip lol) I hope you all have a blessed holiday.

I can't tell you how much it does help. It's sort of a vent and me being the person I am; I do not vent on others very often. I try very hard to make everyone comfortable around me no matter how I feel.
