I was discharged from hospital yesterday. Exactly 4 weeks after being admitted, I got my spinal surgery. The change was instant. As soon as I woke up, the nerve pain was gone. Now I just have to recover from the surgery and get used to being able to move around again. I am very weak, and I have to gradually come off all the pain meds I’ve been taking. But I’m glad the surgery fixed me and I’m not in constant agony anymore.
So… I’m still in hospital. I don’t know if I’ll be having surgery or not. I had a spinal injection the other day, but idk if it’s gonna work or not. Seems like not right now.
Still in the hospital, still in pain. Went to see the neurosurgeon today, and I will be having surgery next week to fix my back. Thankfully I’ll be going through the public system, so the surgery will be free instead of costing me $20,000 + to go private.
I’m so fucking depressed and miserable right now, and I feel like I’d rather die than be in this constant pain. It seems like I’ll never get better. Pain killers don’t work that well. I hate everything right now.
I am in the hospital right now. Just wish I wasn’t in pain anymore. Hate this so much.
