blackwolf Posted November 2, 2005 Report Share Posted November 2, 2005 i have been "away" for so long and have a lot of catching up to do. i know it will take a long time for me to catch up on all the posts, but i will.recovery has been slow-as expected but had more surgary than planned. started with just the cyst at T4 but ended up with "fiberous removal" at T3 and T5. i ended up with a 8 1/2 inch cut instead of 3-4 inches. recovery has been slow but improving. i already have relief from chest pain and headaches. in the begining i was nearly completely paralized in the left leg, but as the swelling went down it has slowly come back. i have daily walking and excersices that help but still going slow. doc says i have done better than planned and should be starting pt in the next few weeks if needed. upper back is still tender but i feel better every day and am starting to get into my old habits. trying to be good. it is amazing how much those muscles in the upper back are used for EVERYTHING. thanks to everyone who has writen, sent cards, etc.blackwolf Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
