After surgery, there will be some associated surgical pain, jabs and jolts, stiffness and burning. We take our meds and eventually heal....and all through this hard period we have depression and doubts. I thought that I would never be able to reach my feet ever again, that was wrong. Now, I put ski boots on fused to the pelvis, and yes this took major patience to figure out since I cant see down well....all in all, all those worries were uncalled for, and well.....here is my video. I’m in the red.
Remember that we are adaptable....You can and will figure out what you want to do and you will do it.
Try not to worry about the “Stitzel negativity” factor on the pedicle screw discussion.....its apples and oranges compounded with fear related, greed oriented, Chiropractic sales hoopla. I don’t get excited about the new flavor of the month anymore. These alternative guys like to hit below the belt when marketing their latest concepts. Its like a record that keeps skipping....and for many years now. People that are beyond like myself have heard all this before.
Best wishes on your surgery.....post when you can.
