Wife having surgery

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
My Wife is having back surgery tomorrow and for all of you who believe, prayers would be appreciated. It might get dicey.

It would be nice to think she might be well enough to ski this winter but not sleeping on the floor and being able to do everyday things is the real goal.

Thanks Bears.

Lars, My sweetie had back surgery almost exactly a year ago today. He went with some trepidation to ski last Christmas. Rusty Guy helped him get back into it. He was skiing the moguls like nobody's business within a few runs. The main thing is to get her to walk the fine line between enough movement to speed recovery and not so much as to derail it. We walked in the mountains after a week post surgery. first less than a block working up to a mile or two. He also accupuncture before surgery, even hypnosis. And he's not an oogedy boggedy kind of guy. (He also bribed all the operating room personnel by offering to buy them a case of champagne after his first successful ski run, which he dutifully made good on. Ya never know!) good luck to you both

I just saw this as well, Lars.

I hope all went well and that she's already well on the road to recovery.

Best wishes to both of you.

Thanks for the prayers and concerns. It is very much appreciated.

Update, Martha is home and doing well.The trip from Buffalo was a little rough but she is home and resting.

The surgery went well. The Dr. removed all the fragmented disk and shaved some off where it was infringing on the nerves. She already has movement without pain and numbness for the first time in months. She needs rest and relaxation for the next couple weeks to allow the area to heal properly and reduce scar tissue from forming.

This is the same Dr who worked on her neck last year. Awesome Neurosurgeon. Nice guy also. We are optomistic about her having a full recovery and back to 100%.

Thanks again.

Good news, Lars. Give her a hug for us.

May whatever Powers that Be bless modern medicine and Mrs. Lars. Knocking on wood, fingers crossed, and all the good thoughts that a devout agnostic can bring to bear.

Thanks again friends.

Sigh of relief for sure. Now all I have to do is get her to do nothing for the next few weeks so it all heels the right way.

Her doing nothing? Ya right. that's what got her into trouble to begin with.

Maybe you could check her into a luxurious spa, with some hunky looking swede, to wait on her hand and foot.

Ya, so is my last name. Today I took a set of prints to get some lumber estimates and take offs done, then I went to the pool place for chemocals. shopped for groceries, cleaned the pool, did the dishes(twice), did three loads of laundry and folded and put the clothes away, Went to a baseball game, cooked hamburgers and corn on the grill, did the dishes again, cleaned up puppy pee. Pshew!!!!!

I'm having a cold Mikes Hard and relaxing.

Thanks Phil. And thanks to everyone who have posted their thoughts here. It meens alot to me and my family.

She's doing fantastically well. She is still a farm girl I guess. Strong. My job right now, and the hardest one, is to keep her from trying to do too much too early. Her post op appointment is next week. Can't do anything till then. Can't take a shower till tomorrow and she's going nuts about that.

Your prayers have helped.
