    Back Again

    Hello,

    I am back again.

    I am doing ok. I have had lumbar pain for several months. I have fallen several times. I have given myself two concussions and a fractured wrist. Well, my doctor, not Dr. Bederman, because I have lousy insurance finally, ordered X-rays of my spine and a CT of my lumbar region. I spoke to Dr. Bederman. He wants to review the films. He stated that it is possible that I broke a rod or knocked a screw out of place when I fell. So my journey begins again

    Melissa, your resilience through incredible amounts of pain is just amazing....

    I hope nothing is broken, perhaps you can dodge another procedure....

    Fingers are crossed...

    Wow, you are a busy young woman. You should be proud of yourself for what you have done so far in your life.

    Kara that is so wonderful how much you are doing! It is so good that you are posting about how much a person can do after being fused. I think you are a valuable example of just living a normal life after fusion.
