Hi I've been suffering with back pains for years, last year it started becoming increasingly difficult to even sit in my wheelchair. I've been disabled for years, from botched surgery for pain . Now I'm facing another surgery on my back for pain. I'm about scared to death with worry. I'd really rather be dead then made any worse. After getting close only a few weeks away they call and move my appointment back another month. I came apart today with that call I'm usually easy but this really ****** me off now.
If ya can just add me to your prayers, I'm not able to make my summer money which is making things tight . A couple grand helps when you live on SS . I need prayers for patients and quick recover with no complications. I spent the entire year in hospitals and nursing homes in 09 mostly from complications.
I swear God hates me . I'm just tired

you are in my prayers.
i know some of what you are going through. Stenosis is slowly closing on my spinal cord and will eventually permanently disable me. I have refused spinal surgery because the docs say it is only temporary and cant be redone later, plus won't help that much. I spent ten years on crutches and two years in a wheel chair. a pain pump gave me some freedom and relief. I am afraid of the procedures to help me and I know the wheel chair that i use part time now will be a full time thing soon. We learn to live with a lot of pain and I pray you will find some relief soon. hopefully you will get to lead a more pain free life. have faith that God will provide help for you.

I don't have anything that I can add, only that I will be keeping both of you in my thoughts and prayers.

I've was trapped on the couch for days just a few years ago, couldn't feel my legs at first then the pains started. Had emergency surgery on L4 and L5, walked out of the hospital several hours later.

But I know at any time I can be right back where I was. So we do what we can, while we can.. I'll be thinking of you both and saying a prayer that your pains can be healed.

Hopefully they can get you in sooner than later SB!

I had a C5/6 dislocation and they told me before surgery that I would probably not walk again, I was very fortunate and the surgery went well and I had a 100% recovery. Only one finger I cannot feel. It is a frightening thing to experience, my thoughts and prayers are with you for a successful outcome!
