Promised update on kyphoplasty

I'm back from my 2 procedures this week at Sloan Kettering.   First was the kidney stent,  which immediately relieved my very severe hip pain that I had no idea was kidney- related. The relief is amazing. 

Kyphoplasty was the next day. Painless procedure done under general anesthesia. I don't know what pain relief it provided as the stent pain relief was so massive. Basically,  inflate a balloon in my vertebrae to restore its normal height and then fill with bone cement.   Not much to say.  It was a pretty innocuous procedure.  I'm in no pain from the procedure itself.  Just some sore muscles. And being careful in my activity for a few weeks.

All in all,  a very long week,  but so far with good outcome.

Being in constant pain, is draining, both physically and emotionally. I am so glad the stent has relieved you of that, and thus, you will heal well from both procedures. 

Thank you for the update. I have been thinking of you.
