I am in pain and distress; may your salvation, O God, protect me.
Earlier this week was the two-year anniversary of my first neurosurgery for a massively herniated disc. After two surgeries, physical therapy, aquatherapy, spine-only physical therapy, massage therapy, cervical traction, trigger point injections, cervical epidurals, a TENS unit, transdermal pain patches, special gel from a compound pharmacy, and oral narcotics I’m in more pain than when all this started. Another MRI this week (I’ve lost count of how many this is) and then a visit to a new neurosurgeon in a couple of weeks. St. Gemma, please pray for me.
