nope.. haven't heard a thing. I wish I had her sister add me on msn so I'd know something. But no news is good news, right?

13th November 2004, 10:56 PM
I hope so. I'm sure her sister just hasn't been able to log on, or something. We'll hear something soon.

Abbi

her sister is maybe in the hospital with her. I hope she is ok too!

Kayla
14th November 2004, 12:42 AM
hmmm I had my sister write in here for me once but I remember she got confused logging in and ended up having to call me to find out how to do it so maybe her sister just got confused

Abbi
14th November 2004, 12:48 AM
yeah....cos when you go on to scoliosis-support.org it brings up news and stuff, you have to click on fourm to get into this....so maybe yeah
I'm sure we will be hearing from her soon tho!

Kayla

Hey all, don't know if anyone else heard from Lindzi on MSN just now - unfortunately I missed her as I was busy decorating, but she said she was in hospital in Toronto, and "in pain outta my mind" - I think we can all relate to that, so huge hugs and many many get well thoughts go out to her, at least it seems like it's good news considering she was at a PC of some kind! :D

Carly
14th November 2004, 04:24 PM
yah she sent me a text on my phone just saying she was in the hospital right now.... nothing else though. I hope I will hear some more later

Oh great to hear some news! :-) Go Lindzi!!!

jfkimberly
14th November 2004, 09:39 PM
If she's sending out messages herself, then she must be doing well. I mean, she hurts, but I imagine she's recovering at a normal pace and her doctors are satisfied. I can't wait to hear the details of her correction, though! No word on that, yet?

Kayla
14th November 2004, 09:50 PM

Marti
14th November 2004, 10:27 PM

You took oral morphine? Is it just like codeine and vicadon or stronger?

titch
16th November 2004, 10:49 AM
Oral morphine is pretty strong stuff, although it comes in 2 basic forms - fast release, and timed release. After my revision/salvage surgery, I was first on a continuous infusion of morphine for a couple of days, then that was changed to a PCA machine for a few days, then I was put onto fast-release oral morphine. Because it was quite difficult to control my pain (because I was an adult, and had been in long term, severe pain before the surgery and had been on a lot of painkillers due to that) I actually went home still on the oral morphine. However, once I'd been home a couple of days I got the doctor out and got much weaker painkillers prescribed. Tramadol 50mg is fairly equivalent to a similar dose of codeine, so oral morphine is definitely quite a fair bit stronger.

Well done Lindzi - and you have even managed to inform us by msn how your'e doing.
I expect you will need the rest now - so I hope you recover well, and it's pretty amazing to reduce the curve to just 12 degrees.
