Hopefully it will all work out
I went to see the orthopedic surgeon today and, long story short, I won't be getting a Deus anytime soon. We are talking about fusing four vertebrae i my neck and three to five in my lower back once I recover from the neck surgery. I have to go back for MRI's as soon as Worker's Comp OKs them. Then we will decide on a definite course of action.
Hang in there..
Talk about a turn of events! The surgeon told me that the surgery was entirely up to me. I have to weigh the outcome against the surgery itself. I could get better, stay the same or get worse. I have a lot of thinking and praying to do.
FF1, I am late seeing this post. Praying for you on all counts, the surgery, the decision for surgery or not, and for the full recovery if the decision is made to go ahead with the surgery. I know this has to be tough weighing on you. If I could make this one suggestion, consult with "The Great Physician". I know you have. He will steer you in the right direction as he knows what will be best for you. We will all keep you and your family in our prayers. Once you are better, the Deus will further help in your rehab swinging, as it is lighter. Stay strong, and keep the faith.
Lots of prayers going out for you and your family. If it helps any, you are not alone. If you ever get bored, or just want to talk to someone, feel free to pm me anytime.
I hate to hear that. Prayers are sent.
I have decided not to have any surgery. I can live with the way I am now. But, I will also not be getting the Deus anytime soon. I lost permission at the best site I had to hunt. Actually it is about the only site around here worth hunting. Hopefully, the farmer will change his mind and allow me back on his property one day.
Hang in there FF1. First things first. First and foremost, get yourself to feeling better. Maybe you can find some sort of treatment that you can undergo without the need of surgery. If the farmer changes his mind and allows you to hunt his property, well you still have your White's and you will then be ready. Once your better physically, you can decide on what to do about the Deus.
I have been through more than two years of treatments from physical therapy to steroid injections to nerve burnings. Surgery is my only remaining option. The other treatments have helped some. Surgery would mean that I could no longer do the work I am doing so that is not a viable option for me. On the + side I haven't taken a pain pill in over a month although at times I have wanted to. I have taken 3 Advil at a time but only on rare occasions.
