    I cant take the pain anymore!!

    Hey its Syd,
    Hey again lately I have in so much pain it like takes over my movement I can barely move when I get into my back pain My parents are always worring about me with my back I worry about them to because its stressing them out too! But the other side is that I am very happy that I am soon going to be out of pain like the others that already had the surgery .Hey if you had the surgery how much pain do you still have in your back or do you have any pain anymore ?

    Hey Syd: I know exactly how you feel. I'm in agonizing pain myself. I'm at 80+ degrees and my lung capacity is quickly dwindling. It hurts to breathe. It hurts to even sniffle. Thank goodness for heat pads - it's my only salvation at this point. I'm still working full time, so my evenings are spent on the heat pad. I try to stretch out my pain pills as much as I can. I have a muscle relaxer but cannot tolerate the sleepiness with it along with the pain pills, so sticking with the pain pills at this point. But, I sympathize with you and your pain. We'll stick it out together. I'm going in July for surgery. Can't come soon enough (I think?)....

    Hi there Syd: I don't know what my lung capacity is exactly, but I know it's not good because I'm having trouble talking in whole sentences without stopping in the middle to take a breath. Isn't that awful?! And, I've noticed that even walking around the house at home I'm walking slower and especially at work as the day goes on the slower I go. I am in excruciating pain! It hurts to breathe all the time. It hurts to take a breath or even sniffle. I seem to spend at least two hours a night getting to sleep, then having a hard time getting up in the morning and spend most of the day very tired. I sit on the heat pad as much as I possibly can. I"m taking Propoxyphene for pain and Skelaxin for the muscle spasms. I really think it helps some, but just not a bunch. Working all day seems to tire me a lot, but I have no choice in that matter. Work is where the insurance comes from and the money. Soooooo, no choice there. Fortunately I do not have a real hard job so that helps. I'm scheduled for sx in July - I can't imagine waiting that long. I don't think I can possibly wait that long, but I'm giving it my best effort. It's mostly the breathing part that bothers me the most. I just stick close to my heat pad in the evenings and weekends.
