I Feel Much Better

After a great nights sleep it was great to get out the house. There’s no doubt that I’ve experienced some improvement since yesterday. It’s still tough to lean forward without my back brace. But, my overall body feels much better and that is a huge answer to many prayers.

They did a thorough evaluation of me during my one hour long doctor visit. Based on general X-rays of my upper body my stimulator and lead wires appear just fine. However, they want to take a deeper look at the disc above my fusion which is where my pain is most felt. There’s always the chance that the disc above my titanium disc has bulged more.

The doctor has ordered me to have a Myelogram with contrast to be done as soon as possible. This will show a clearer picture of anything that may have shifted or gotten worse. They will also schedule me to have a facet injection in my surgical area. Unfortunately, it appears this will take a couple weeks to happen.

All that said, I really do feel progress has been made. I feel so much better about my overall situation. Hopefully, there is nothing that won’t heal with time. In the meantime, I look forward to getting this shot and pray that it happens sooner than later.

Thanks for all your prayers that have lifted my head, heart, and body. Several things have shifted and worked out for my good. I feel like so much weight has come off my shoulders. I’m confident God is working everything out for my good. Sometimes all you can do is walk through the pain. I’m walking carefully, but I’m back up walking forward by faith.

“And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.” Romans 8:28
