    Hello, Ed!

    Ed,

    Good luck with your continued recovery. I have some numbness, but not where it effects anything I do. Trust me, my Zumba moves aren't with any hip wiggling, but it's still fun....

    8 Year Anviersayr-Jan. 5, 2019

    It's hard to believe that it's been 8 years since I was fused T-4 to the sacrum by Dr. Lenke in St. Louis. Recovery isn't easy for anyone, but mine was smoother than many. At age 68, I am more...

    It's good that you don't have to wait too long to see Dr. Lenke, especially since you're having so much pain. I am 7 years post-op, but still realize is a possibility of breaking a rod. Let us know...

    I think that is terrible that you still don't have a date for surgery. I guess we shouldn't complain about our healthcare in the US. I feel for you.

    Kara,
    I am sorry about your fall. It's a good thing you saw the surgeon. Hopefully, injections will help the pain or it will heal in its own as your surgeon said.
