Default Been in hospital 4 Spinal Surgery

Hi Guys, 1st let me thank God I came thru it all OK & am in a 1 yr recovery @ home now before playing w the toys again. Didnít know but Iíd had an injury Probly from football as a kid & must of shrugged it off. The process of the body trying to protect started growing soft tissue in Cervix vertebrae 1 & 2 pushing on Spinal-chord. Was losing hand, foot, leg & arm function. Long & short they cut some bone out to relieve pressure @ C1 & C2 & fused to lower vertebrae. Symptoms subsiding slowly but steadily & looking forward to being back in the game in 6 months to a year.
Best to u all

Good to hear it all went ok! Take care of yourself.
I just spent two days in the hospital with a bowel infection. Could have been more serious if I had waited too long.

My doctor told me not to lift anything heavier than a can of beer or a woman's skirt. So far, so good.

When you feel it's time, get yourself moving. Start with easy exercise I went through Waay worse. I managed to get back to trucking. Yeah!

Cancer erased the progress I made. Today I'm a poor excuse for man. I've given up the count of bursts and fractures of my spine. I'm still trying, even though the Drugs I've been given have wrecked my chassis. Osteoporosis dire and severe I'm told.

The one who really suffers is the Mrs.

Well for all the barners who have serious issues, the best thing you can do is FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS your physician/surgeon/PT people give you. That is your best chance for your outcome. We are all getting older and there is always something...Take care and speedy recovery to all.

Tony, we usually never know the problems others are going through. Sorry to hear about this, but happy to know you came through the operation well. Take your time, let the healing process take its time, then you can get back to safely working on your nice '35 again.

Just one more reason football should be outlawed! It's nothing but modern gladiator warfare. The whole idea is to inflict pain and injury on your opponent so you can gain possession of that lop-sided ball. Then, as you say, years later you are all stove up, and for what?! Sure glad I was a gearhead and bookworm instead of a jock!
