Back surgery,

This really has nothing to do with Doodlers, other than to mention that my 2 darlings are the best therapy dogs! 

I have been having quite a time with low back pain and recently had an MRI.  I have 4 disc areas that are effected and 2 are pretty bad, compressing the sciatic nerve.  I am flying to Scottsdale AZ with my husband on Wed., to go to the Laser Spine Institute for minimally invasive surgery.  They have been very professional and offer a procedure that seems very reasonable to me. I am asking for positive thoughts to be sent in my direction, as I am anxious about it.  My surgery date is scheduled for Mon. 9/26. Thanks everyone!  I love this site of supportive friends....

  • Richard, What an encouraging word for Lauria!
  • Best wishes.  Minimally Invasive is the way to go!  I had surgery at the Spime Institute of San Diego which is another minimally invasive treatment center.  I hurt so badly that I could not sit up in the car for the drive to the hospital and needed to lay in the back seat while my wife drove.


    The next day, 24 hours after the surgery, I walked out of the hospital.  I was not exactly pain free but, that came along soon.

    Thank you so much...getting closer and am soon to be on the other side of this nerve pain. I have never been to Scottsdale. We have Thursday and Friday appts.,meeting with the staff and MDs, having more tests.  We have the weekend free and then Monday is the surgery.  It would be nice to feel like I could get around some to see Scottsdale.  I have heard it is lovely...warm,likely, but lovely!  I appreciate your positive energy SOOOO very much!
