    Hi

    Hey everyone it been a while since I been on here.
    I been quite busy. Iím in a computer class and American Sign Language class though the college here. I started at a art program a few weeks ago I donít remember exactly when. A couple weeks ago I fell backwards in the bathtub the middle of my Fusion bent forward it felt really awkward. Im still in a lot of pain from that accident. On thanksgiving the pain was really bad. It still hurts really bad. I go back to uc Davis in January 2018 to talk with my Surgeon.

    Hi Kara,

    I bet your fusion is still okay and that it is soft tissue that hurts so much. One of my daughters hurt herself like that but now she is fine.

    I hope you are still able to attend class so you don't miss anything.

    I hope you write about what the surgeon tells you.

    I surely will Sharon.
    I still have a feeling a Piece of hardware is broken.
    Also a few days ago when I was trying to sleep on my side the area t4 to t6 popped.

    Kara please try not to worry about broken hardware. The radiographs will show that if present.

    Your pain should be getting less and less. I hope it isn't getting worse.

    Sharon I like your point. But the pain is still about the same. I did have X-rays done here where I live. There a lot of confusion about my X-rays that the hospital here. So my mom had a idea to have me make a Appointment with my surgeon. I wrote down a small note for him about what happened.

    That's good that you wrote it down because the surgeon is going to want to understand the fall as much as possible.
