Haven't been able to post much due to problem. Even hurts laying down on the 10 scale, constantly at a 9. I will be having spinal surgery Monday, after swearing for years I would not have another back operation, trying to get the pain under control enough that the meds will start working again. Drugs are now at $1800/mo just to stop from passing out due to pain. Cross my fingers as a wheelchair and neutralizing the nerve endings is all that would be left and I don't think I will allow my life to be lived that way, no feeling or moving around . At least the weather is taking a turn for the better. Cook something good and think of me once in awhile.

Good luck with your surgery. I will keep you in my prayers until you come back on line feeling 100% better. God Bless.

Glad the meds are working.  It was explained to me once before I had surgery don't be afraid to take the pain medication, your body heals better when it is not in pain.  So take the meds as prescribed so they continue to help with pain control.  The trick is once you are in pain to control it as soon as possible and that is difficult sometimes.

Well looks like I will have all 18 staples removed come end of the week. The medical supply guy will be there to turn on the computer and we shall see how well it works. Hope all this pain is worth it.

It was really nice of everyone sending wishes along. Meds are for absolute need only. I keep making the same intentional mistake over and over. Stop taking the meds hoping I don't need them. How can a person tell if they are being hooked or not??? I don't want that problem either...

 John,  I will keep my fingers crossed for you. 
You make it sound like you are the next Million dollar man.  I wish you all the luck in the world. Hope the "Luck of the Irish" is with you.

Preston, What's up guy?  How's the laptop working out for ya?  Have you found the pillow booster and arm prop(round pillow) that seem to work so well for me?  I have been in a funk that didn't want to fade away so I could stop hurting and start moving again. The meds are working their thing on me so I have the pillowtop lapper on the bed and and trying to drain the battery before I have to get up and plug it in. I won't put a plug by the bed or I would never get up and out, know what I mean?
 Hope all is well and a special thanks for your concern, it meant a lot more than you can imagine.

Taking meds is no fun John but you should take them as long as the doctor has you on them.  As I understand it, the people who get "hooked"  are the ones who take them even after they have no pain.  My prayers are with you to soon be pain free and mobile again.

Happy Anniversary to me!!!   Seven years ago today "Beware the ides of March" I fell at work and all these problems started. The doc told me then this is a life changing event. I didn't understand it wasn't negotiable. Well have a nice day. Maybe I will go to DQ, use a coupon, and buy myself an ice cream cake.

John, I've been quietly following along with your progress and appreciate that you are back on VBB.  I can't imagine the pain that you have been, and perhaps still are experiencing.   Hope to hear that you are able to be up and about a bit more and that the pain level is decreasing.  I know it is a little early for all this to happen, but keep us updated.
