was told by my Chiropractor yesterday that he wants me to see a Orthopedic Surgeon. I haven't told my husband yet and I'm very depressed about this, been trying to put off surgery. Hopeing for my back to get better.... tears are falling as I write. Just won't go, not ready to give up yet my back will get better. I'm just a little slower to heal than most people thats all. like the song "Pain can't get enough, I'd rather feel pain." Did not know where to post though this site was best as thats the mood I'm in Just very very over wrought and Depressed. Just going to wait and see, not going to say anything to anyone yet need some space and time to think.
Y'all have a good week

Omg honey I am so sorry. I know that surgery is very scary. But,My ex husband had major back pain all of the time. And he finally broke down and let them do the surgery. He said he had never felt better after that. Plus,as I am sure your doctor told you if you let something like that go on,then it could get alot worse right?
I guess I would look at the future and believe in your doctors.
I am sure your husband will be very supportive for you....he is probably the best person to talk to about this.
Plus,think about all of the love and attention you will get after the surgery!!! You can order breakfast in bed and watch someone else clean your house while you watch tv ;) (just trying to make you smile!)

Hi, Chartreux.

I understand completely the anxiety you're having about possible surgery. It is a very scary thing. I'm going through something similar. I found a growth under my tonsil which has me very scared. I think it's likely going to need to be surgically removed - perhaps a tonsillectomy. My anxiety level is through the roof, and like you, tears are falling as I write this message. I can't express enough about how scared I feel. I think both of us are going to have to trust our doctors and put ourselves in their hands knowing that shortterm suffering will eventually get us to a better place. I wish you all the best in whatever decision you make.
