A little over two months ago I had the agony of 10 years surgically removed. I am not recommending this surgery for everyone just sharing my experience. See I thought if I toughed it out South Philly style I could just power through the pain. I could walk off the weight I put on through the years of too much pain today I’ll walk tomorrow. I had countless hours of physical therapy and even 3 different cortisol shots. In the end powering through bone spurs herniated discs just weren’t the way to go. I learned a lot about myself on this road of trials.
Now in less than 3 weeks I’ll see the guy about my neck. Dr Lu. Dr Lu is an amazing spinal surgeon. He understands the spine like no one I’ve ever met. I didn’t feel comfortable until now trusting anyone with my neck vertebras. I know if one of them is touched the wrong way I’m paralyzed for life. I emotionally couldn’t handle that.
Honestly I can’t wait to return to photography. I miss it a lot. I miss doing a lot of my life. Walking has improved the quality of my life and no pain, happy dance. Oh yeah and I can dance again, from the waist down. Hahaha. I hope my neck is fixed and the constant numbness goes again, along with the pressure and exhaustion. That would just rock my world.
I have a lot left to do in this world. ;-)
