UPDATE

Well! friends, I have not been reading any blogs and have not posted anything.sometimes I just feel so over whelmed. I had to have an EMG done to check on the nerve conduction because of the numbness I feel in my toes.It was not too bad,just some electrical jolts along the path of the nerve down my legs.It was just a bit uncomfortable. On Friday I had to have a Myelo-CT scan done.I was very nervous because I was told I could not have any sedation.Apparently I have been spoiled with being given sedation before all my other proceedures. Actually it was not as bad as I thought it would be.SOme dye was injected into the spinal canal and then the Ct was done. Here is a picture of my spine with the artificial disc and the interbody cage with fusion below. I am doing better today, was not feeling too good the past few days, a lot of back and leg pain.I think it will pass.I hope you guys had a good week. I sure miss all of you.Thank you for keeping my sister in your prayers.she will be undergoing her third chemo treatment next week.

ouch.. lalitha i hope u get better quickly and the toe numbness passes... hopefully your sister is also doing better now and the chemo sessions are having an effect?
you are missed

chitra 9:49 PM  

I hope you get well soon. prbably it is because you did not get enough time to recuperate post surgery and you had to travel long distance to take care of your sis. I am sure it is more due to mental stress that u wd be undergoing.

Take care. love you.

Starry, I am so sorry you haven't feeling well, but on the other hand, I am so glad that the Myelo-CT was not as painful as you thought. Thank you for all the information on it, I did not know much about this scan. Here's hoping the pain and numbness go away soon and that you can return to feeling normal. Continuing our prayers for your sister.

*hugs*
