First…. Thanks for the kind words. 8-). Everyone wants to feel loved..and I do.. 😎
Friday night and yesterday were brutal on me. My Stomach muscles Would start to spasm… and then my breathing got all fucked up and then the pain set in an oh I tell ya boys… it sucked. The Recovery of this shit is intense.. I can’t believe there isn’t some sort of way to stop this pain for a few weeks.. Come on man.. people fly to the moon.. I just want to be. Numb in that area till it’s better…. 8-). 8-). I’m probably just a big pussy… 8-). Anyway.. I know in my heart that in a few months time from now.. I will be sooo much more happy!!!!!!! Hopefully much less pain and be able to walk as far as I want 8-). I think pain affects my mood, me attitude, even how much pain I have!!!! More pain, more pain, and so it starts too get big bigger and bigger like snow headed down a 14teener! It’s hard.. My suggestion, remember, this too shall pass…and everything is temporary, wait a day.. try again the next day.. but learn from it… wake up and tell yourself your gonna have a better day! 8-).
Healing up… can’t wait to have consistent poops again… 😎John JonesKeymasterJuly 5, 2020 at 1:58 pmPost count: 7114
I am ready to get out of this hospital!!!!!!!! I’ve got a cut from my belly button to my junk in the front and about 37 or so staples on my back, I feel stiff, sore, but ready to start moving around…. i wish this surgery on no one☹️☹️☹️☹️☹️ But I reckon I will be fine…
Geez, why do they cut you in front to fix your back??? Damn!!!
They cut open the front and move your guts and what not out of the way to expose the spine … Then they dig out any and all disc material and screw some cages in there to the vertebrae to keep everything spaced correctly. They fill them cages up with bone fertilizer and what not, straighten things up, make room where needed, like they did on my right side… a little extra rooters roooter around s1 nerve root hole thingy… 8-). I had scoliosis too, so they straightened it all back up too…. now, flop that shit back where it was sew me up, flip me over…. Now, they flipped me over and installed screw with holes in em and slip solid stainless rod through them all. Doc said that if I ever break my back again, it will be above there!!!! My bones are as strong as they come he said!!!! He was sweating trying to screw to them…. align and tighten everything up and reassemble…. 8-). I am mechanically Fixed! 8-). The main thing now is healing the insicions .. I guess we are letting the “paint dry”. 8-). 😎RustabusParticipantJuly 5, 2020 at 5:11 pmPost count: 2002

I get the heebs just reading about what they did. I’d be swearing and screaming, but that would probably make the pain worse. Just do the best you can!RSP3ParticipantJuly 5, 2020 at 10:11 pmPost count: 148

I'm at the age where "fuck off", "fuck you", and "fuck it" answer most questions.John JonesKeymasterJuly 8, 2020 at 1:59 pmPost count: 7114
I feel WONDERFUL today,,, I may have turned a corner,!!!!!!!!!
This has been a rough recover! Couldn’t have even made it without my awesome wife. I wouldn’t even try it as single person. The hospital was awesome the Surgeon was awesome. Now that a few positive things are flowing I feel thanking everyone!😁😁😁.
surround yourself with people you love and you can get through about anything!😉😉😉😉😉JasonSParticipantJuly 8, 2020 at 2:18 pmPost count: 148
Glad to see everything went well and you are feeling better. I will never forget the day of the wheelchair while I was there. I assume you will be at the Springs next weekend if so hopefully we will see you there.alykatParticipantJuly 8, 2020 at 2:31 pmPost count: 509
