Ok guys...the surgery was a little rough. More compression than showed on the MRI's. He did a laminectomy on T10 and T11 and a partial on T9 .
I woke up in some serious pain. OMG I would have all three kids again concurrently and it wouldn't hurt as much. I do not do well with pain meds or anesthetics. They make me sick to my stomach and I really haven't ate since Sunday. Yesterday just sips of water and that didn't stay down.
Not in pain now except when I move my back. I was fitted for a special brace and I got up out of bed this afternoon and walked. Hope to get out of ICU and into a regular room tonight. Hope to go home Thursday or Friday.
Thanks for the thoughts, prayers and the carrot cupcake from Gunslinger. I hope to be in my saddle in 2 or 3 months!
