OH! MY ACHING BACK

My back has been bad for almost three years
I have been through a lot of pain and many a tear.
I have sought many treatments
Boasting a cure.
Physical therapy, accupuncture,Chiropractic,
And Epidural shots, to name a few.

X-rays were taken, scans were read
many MRI's along the year too.
came back with the same diagnosis, that
I had a bad back ,which I already knew.

Don't bend, sit up straight.
Eat healthy ,dont put on weight.
Use ice, no! use heat said some.
Just go to India and try Ayurvedic said one.

The doctor has spoken
The verdict is in.
I have two bad discs that are torn
through and through and.
need to be replaced with something new.

The surgery is set for November 6th
One disc will be to be replaced
with the The PRODISC
Which is something new.
The second will be replaced
with a SPINAL CAGE
Which will be glued.

Recovery is quick,
Thats what I am told.
Three to five days in the Hospital
And then I will be home.

I will try and update
As soon as I feel well.
Untill then my dear friends
Take care of yourselves.

Many of my friends have asked what surgery I am going to have so I thought I should post something so everyone would know. Thank you all for giving me courage and for all the prayers. I will be good as new ,and will be back to blogging and give you all the news. till then "Adios "my friends.

Lalitha u'll be perfectly alright and they r right recovery is fast but having said that don't u just get on with ur domestic chores once u come back, take help from a physio who will condition ur back for the routine chores and then u can get back to normal. I personally hv a surgically repaired neck, had to replace 5 discs and it took me almost 3 months to get fully recovered so pls take very good care of urself and get well soon...:)
