Surgery Tomorrow

My apologoies to the group for being missing in action.....that's how bad the pain is right now, just crippling and I'm mostly in bed all day, it's been a bad scene.

The pain pils dull the pain but cannot get me on my feet for long, just enough to do what what I gotta do....then take the pressure off by laying down. Pills and patches numb some, now it's even hard to lay down without alot of pain. And the doses just keep going up with no relief in sight.

My pain mgmgt doctor and I have been talking about a nerve block surgery to help with the pain.  It may work, or may not. 

A solution is injected through a CT scan so they can follow the path to the lung nerves where I hurt so badly.  The solution is supposed to kill the nerves it is administerd to from the injection.  Relief might be immediate or twka e a couple of weeks to work.  And we're hoping it does help.

Complications of course, but we'll figure it will go as planned......this is no way to live for any one with the pain.  Jus bad lung tumor location.

So, maybe this surgery will help to get me back up on my feet and back on the board some.  What I'm hoping for.  24-7 pain for these past 7-months.....I'm out of my mind with pain.

In fact, gotta go lay down, but just wanted to reach out and post quickly.  Surgery at 7-am tomorrow. 

Here's to success!

Thanks for keeping a watch out over me.  Miss you guys very much!

Love/Craig

I really do hope that it provides some kind of relief for me....it's really nice to see those all those faces I miss so dearly.  You get to be in pain so long, it becomes normal and you can't remember anything else.

Thanks for stopping by to see me.  Just wanted to keep you close and update you personally while I could, it's important.

Keep the light on for me:)

As well as the other 49 states & all over the world where you have many friends. Just so sorry you are having to endure this non-stop pain. Will be thinking of you tomorrow as well as all the other days. As you know, this surgery is doable, if not a tough one but I know you will okay. We wouldn't have it any other way. It seems that you & JBG are having a "surgery" competition. When you are healed from this, I certainly hope the pain doc can get your pain under control.

Luv,

"Mama"
