Re: Happy Christmas and hope 2011 is good for you all!

Re: Operation Phobia!

It's normal to be frightened. I was almost 58 when I had surgery and had escaped surgeries all my life, hoping I'd go through life without surgery! I too, was terrified but as Louise said, it...

Re: Why did I have this surgery? It screwed my life up so bad. (PICTURE)

I've lost two replies to you so will try the quick reply box. I just wanted to say the photo shows redness but no swelling which I would expect with infection.

I can't blame you for being down...

Re: Middle of the night...

The last week or two can be miserable with anxiety, but my suggestion would be to force your mind to think about a time after the surgery.

Think about the time when you'll be recovering a little...

Re: One week to go!

Good luck Lorna. That last week can be difficult, but hopefully you'll get that "calm but excited" feeling in the last day or two, that some of us get. Looking forward to hearing from you after...

Re: Hey everyone!

That's such a great idea - the online business. I am 60 next year and quite able to work but after recovering from my surgery, I didn't feel like battling in the job market. I live in an area of...

Has your husband just acquired shingles? There is a medication available now (at least in Australia) that puts a halt to it within a few days, but it needs to be started within a week of the...

Re: Newbie with questions please

Hi and welcome.

In answer to your questions:

1. He says he will only need to go in posteriorly...what does that entail.

It means that the surgeon will open you only from the back. The scar...

Re: Do you think having Scoliosis/Kyphosis has changed you

No, I don't think so. I think if I'd had a lot of pain to deal with, it may very well have. But I pretty much ignored it until my late 50s and by the time the pain started, it wasn't long before I...

Lots of good advice here. I was nearly 58 when I had my surgery and I was nervous too, but in the last day or two I had a nice, peaceful, accepting calm come over me. I've read that this is quite...

Emma, I was in the holding bay and I asked the nurse for a pre-op. She brought a tablet, I took it and that's the last I remember until I woke in ICU. It seemed to put me instantly to sleep! Which...
