Wow I can't believe that the Holidays have come and gone without even one blog post....sigh. So Happy New Year right. I could blame my lack of blog posts on tons of stuff but honestly I just plain hurt. I was trying to figure out what I could do to help make my the chronic pain I live with daily better. So I visited 2 different surgeons who have both said that I have Degenerative Scoliosis with Arthritis oh boy & yippee!!!! They both agree I need surgery but the last one I saw on the Wednesday before Christmas let me know that I should probably think seriously about having a 3rd back surgery that would fuse my back from T-10 to pelvis if I want to help the chronic pain issue and to stabilize my spine. Of course as with all the other doctors I've seen this past year he wanted more x-rays, another MRI, a bone density test plus another injection into my spine all before he'll see me again to discuss this extensive surgery & my recovery.
