Well today was "the day" I saw the Doc who's going to do the "root nerve burning" in my middle back and also in my lower back (L1,2,3, and than L4, L5). I had seen him b4, but had CHICKENED OUT ! After all it seemed to me what SANE Person wants a NEEDLE SHOVED into them that will kill their nerves in their backs so they dont comminicate with your brain your in pain? Sounds good to me NOW that I am in such termoundous pain that I am doubled over into a fetal position or laying on my back with my legs up to my side like a frog while I am using 2 heating pads. I "was" so scared b4 that I just was NOT willing to take this step, I had heard such horror story from friends and a neighbor of this procedure going wrong, and them ending up in W.ORSE pain and needing an aid to walk (I already do because of the scolosis being so bad, and this will not correct that as well as my back brace doesn't correct that, just helps it from getting worse. These 2 things do NOT keep me from doing aerobics, LOL I just adjust the moves ,,,and also still do zumba, when my feet will allow it, so once I am OUT of the cast from surgery, and the foot is able,,,, I WANT TOO !). Right now I just lay here in bed while healing from the foot surg, and do A LOT of deep breathing, and praying to help me through the pain. When I am able to walk, it actually helps with the pain, though of course far from removes it.
So on to today. Much to my charin, the closet appt they can give me due to vacations, and conferences,,,,is AUGUST 10 !!! For the mid back and for the lower back Aug 29!! That's ALMOST Sept !! I can't believe I have to wait so long ! Yet, he like ALL specialists in this area, are extremely backed up. I SHOULD be used to this, and SHOULD of known. SIGH !!! Well, hey, I'll make it, I always do. In the meantime, I'll keep working on my core muscles, which helps the back soooo much !! As soon as the cast comes off,,,it's back to the chair excerises, than building back up to Richard Simmons ! Than IF I can handle it,,,can we say YIIPPPPEEEE YIIIIII YEAAAHHHHHH to ZUUUUMMMMBAAAAA !!!!! LOL My poor foot surgeon has such a heart attack with me !
And me? I just
more and more. You just gotta do what you gotta do !!! Never give up doing what it is you LOVE ! And love what it is you do.
