My wife and I looked at the report on the mri , up top between my shoulders I'm screwed. They didn't say anything really about the lower back and the discs . At least that we could understand but it seems I had some weird **** happen at the time of the 79 operations one spot of my cord is real thin. After the first operation they said my cord was swollen and they left a cord leak . But I was great no pain moving legs and could feel everything. After about two weeks they wanted to operate again but I said no . They coerced my family into changing my mind so operation 2 YUPP wake up fully paralyzed neck down , still leaking spinal fluid . He didn't do what he was told and he said was only seal the leak . He removed more bone and explored further. So now he's scared says he's going on vacation ships me to Pennsylvania hospital Dr Fred Simione best on the east coast at that time. You guessed it painful mylograms lower and upper . Long needle injected into your spine behind your ear and then turned upside down on your head and every angle . Another operation he took skin graft from leg and sealed the leak. Told me all he could see was scar tissue . So my life's been **** caused by a dam India Dr Narni Geri , no longer practicing or living in the USA . So if I seem miserable on here I think I earned the right to be an sob at times I'm hurting like hell. Here's my story truth with a large family and relatives to prove every word. I'm tired of fighting to live , to eat , to keep a home even.

Next visit to the surgeon is , December 7th 10 am. Gonna try and pin down if he's going to fix my bulging discs. I'm so tired of pain and not moving around. I have a large drill press to pick up its 20" with the big table and power feed . I have one now that needs tons of work but this one's off the floor of a working shop. So ill be trying ,,,begging ,,, for help from a few friends if they even respond . It's less then five miles and I have a forklift I can use to unload . So I'm hoping for help but not going to get it I'd bet money on that.

Well it's 1 am and today may effect my life what's left of it. I see Dr Harrop around 10 am . I'm going to really box him in a corner to get the questions answered . It's just not right to keep people suffering for long extended periods of time. There has to be something that can be done to at least stop the pain enough I can get around to mess in my shop. I've got no friends to help , just my daughter and she's a very busy mental health therapist in her own practise. I'd be willing to tutor anyone wanting to learn machine tool technology. In exchange for the help of setting up the shop . Even restoring several machines . I don't ever try to use anyone has I've been used and abused over the years. Even my church where we put over twenty five years of our whole families lives. Not one person . But that's ok I really didn't do the work there for people per say.
If I can ask could you just send a thought to heaven for me . To guide the surgeon on how and where to cut to relieve my pain. Thank you all

wishing you good luck at the docs. I know how it feels to be in limbo and wondering if it will get better.

I am thinking about you Silverbullet; you have all my best wishes.
I hope you come out of today with a plan for a pain-free (or at least, reduced pain) future.

I know for me the more time I can spend in the shop the better I feel.

It went about like I figured , he's sending back to pain doctors , some different procedure to pinpoint the cause with pain blockers or morphine drip in the spine of some sort.
Not what I wanted to hear , but they're the best around here. Right now I'm in so much friggin pain I'm incoherent to everything . I get told by pain management go see surgeon I go for surgery he sends me back . I feel like I'm some kind of yoyo there pumping up and down and being thrown down a hall. All I know is I can't take this much longer , handful of oxy ill just go to sleep. Then I won't be suffering.

Hopefully now the pain management team will understand that surgery is not an option and they will produce a solid plan to help you.
Hang in there!

I'm telling YA I'm about done in. If they get moving quicker and really figure it out. The opium drip with a mix of lidocaine sounds like it won't let me do nothing . It's a pump or something .

One thing really ticks me off. He could have let me know his results weeks ago by email or phone . No I had to waste another six weeks of my life getting nowhere. Between the pain from going to his office and now I'm still not even able to move in bed and it's been three days . Now I'm kinda pissed OFF too. But he's not in pain so they just don't get it . I never ever thought I'd grow up and have back pain . My dad use to have some and I guess I didn't really know till I'm in it . But he never was down just said it ached.
Going on two years since I started trying to get fixed up any wonder I'm on edge.
