Recovering at Home!

Hi everyone! For whatever reason my drafts that I had written to release didn’t release! So it’s been a few days and I’m writing this from bed after my surgery. It’s been a long day however the spinal implant has been done and seems to be working! Just when I thought it wasn’t possible the pain in my back is pretty intense. On the flip side when I have the stimulation on my pain is reduced. For now the unit that they will implant is running out of my back and stays out for ten days. Every second day I’ll run back and forth to the implant clinic for monitoring. After that time they will implant the battery in my abdomen.

So for now it’s a matter of taking it very easy over the next couple of days and letting my back heal and learning how to use the unit. When I’m feeling more up to it I’ll update and tell you about the surgery and what I can expect from it. Time for more meds and to try and get some sleep!!

 

About Ross

My name is Ross and I want to welcome you to my site. I’m married to an amazing woman who is my best friend, and my soul mate all rolled up into one! I am the father of two very special girls who we adopted from China & Ethiopia. Together we make up one very multicultural family!

In 2006 my life was turned upside down when I was diagnosed with CRPS/RSD. It was the start of a journey I never could have expected, and one that I couldn’t fight without God. CRPS is a chronic pain disease and it started in my left hand. I lost mobility of my hand and started to experience pain unlike I ever could have imagined. Not to long after my left ankle became affected. I spent the better half of about a year not knowing what was going on in my body and traveling from doctor to doctor to find a diagnosis. As time went by I started learning more about CRPS and all its symptoms that it brings with it!

As I started to learn more about CRPS I felt the growing need to share the information I was learning with others and to raise more awareness. As well I want this to be a place where we can connect and support one another. So I would encourage you to contact me if you want.
