Yesterday afternoon I received a phone call from my surgeon’s office, not something I wanted to hear. They had to reschedule my surgery for Friday morning now. The Dr. had an emergency surgery he has to preform today. I could not believe what I was being told. I understand emergencies, but I kept saying to myself you have to be kidding me.
Two more days with this pain, I just want to feel good again. I want my life back. My husband says he want his wife back. Lord knows we know what it is like to have to wait, we know what it is to live with someone in pain, but in my mind I keep saying, enough is enough for this family with medical problems. To help me get through this I picture in my mind others that are in the hospital with bigger problems than mine. I am lucky I am at home waiting. If anyone has experienced pain from your sciatica nerve you know how I feel. If not this is what it feels like:
Web MD : Pain that radiates from your lower (lumbar) spine to your buttock and down the back of your leg is the hallmark of sciatica. You might feel the discomfort almost anywhere along the nerve pathway, but it’s especially likely to follow a path from your low back to your buttock and the back of your thigh and calf.
The pain is a sharp, burning sensation or excruciating pain. Sometimes it can feel like a jolt or electric shock. It can be worse when you cough or sneeze, and prolonged sitting can aggravate symptoms. Usually only one side of your body is affected.
Some people also have numbness, tingling or muscle weakness in the affected leg or foot. You might have pain in one part of your leg and numbness in another part.
So two more days, find my inner strength, love from my family and friends I got this. Like I used to tell Lauren, you are a strong pollock so now she has been saying this to me. Also one more thing on my mind, my mother is having surgery February 1st. I wanted to be there for her, but I cannot physically. I live in Massachusetts and she lives in Florida. Thank the dear Lord I have sisters that will be there for her. In our family that will be 3 surgeries for the start of 2016. After that we need to plan some vacations.
Love you mom, we got this………………
