I am beside myself. Very weak, very tired. I cannot walk, practcally bed ridden. I developed new fractures in the spine from doing nothing.
The orthopedic spinal surgeon is now referring me into Manhattan to the New York Hospital for speciality surgery. I cannot believe this.
One month I am working the next month I am incapacitated. I cannot do anything. No work. Nothing. They think the spine has severe osteoporosis but very skepitical now. Wants furthur tests by a specialist. Tired of being in pain and weak from these strong pain killers.
All I want to do is sleep. Kyphoplasty helped
2 fractures. But they cannot go in there every week when another new fracture starts. I am so beside myself. Can't think or eat. losing weight.
Your friend Fran

I am so sorry to hear this. It sound like you are in so much pain. It must be so frustrating to go to all of these specialists and finding little relief. Please hang in there. I know you feel like giving up, but please don't. I will keep praying for you.

God bless,

I am so sorry that you are going through this. I am praying for a quick solution for you. I agree with nanuk. do what you can to get some food into you. You need strength to get through this.

Dear Fran,

When I was going through a rough time (nothing like you..just a severe blockage), I would say..."Tomorrow will be a better day..", and it finally was. Please try and visualize painfree days ahead.

Hi Fran......I need to read messages like yours sometimes to give me a good swift kick in tha butt........to remind me that my gripes are trivial. There is always someone that needs a sympathetic ear that are more deserving f it. So sorry to hear you are doing it tough gal. Thinking of you Fran.
