When something isn’t right you know it. When something is really wrong you also know it. The hardest part I think is deciding how to go about fixing it. In this particular case I’m referring to it is simply my neck has not been right for such a long time.
When the pain got so bad I was forced to take action. Lucky for me the Dr. didn’t want to prolong the surgery and put a plan into action. I was terrified knowing I had a major surgery to prepare for in a short time. I’m not so good at accepting help even when it’s offered, but I swallowed my pride and allowed my inner circle in.
After getting my arthritis cut out, bone Spurs removed, disk rebuilt and two fusions performed I was ready wake up, or was I?
I certainly am not a good patient. I don’t have a lot of patience’s’ and I was not prepared for my throat to be so sore. While I had grown a tolerance for neck aches I didn’t anticipate having trouble swallowing. Not going to lie I was freaked out BIGTIME…
Healing takes time. Even though the mind knows it will take a while to feel better, the body thinks it can still go on autopilot and resume normal activity. FAKE NEWS.
After all the hours of worrying and preparing for my surgery, I’m so happy it is all behind me. I’m so excited to heal up completely and be able to get on with the rest of my life, without pain. So a big shoutout to everyone that encouraged me, prayed with me, sent me well wishes, brought goodies to brighten my day or simply gave a quick text to ask about me, it meant the world to me knowing you all were thinking of me.
