Back Surgery Today December 18, 2017

Recommended Posts

In less than two hours, I am heading to West Valley Medical Center (1717 Arlington, Caldwell, ID 83605) for my back surgery. I expect to be admitted for one night and should return home tomorrow, if all goes well.

Thank you for the kind words and encouragement. The surgery went well and I was able to return home after spending one night in the hospital. I am very sore, but healing. My post-op follow-up appointment is on the 28th. Bed rest and pain-management is the main course of action.

Post-op appointment went well. Everything is healing up. Next appointment is in February. It is cold outside, (with snow), and I am bored out of my mind. I am still sore and have pain, tingling, numbness, and spasms, but the doc says that is normal. The nerves have been compressed for so long that they are struggling to regain normal function. Those issues may, or may not, go away any time soon, and the nerves may, or may not, regain full functionality. Only time will tell.
