Recovering!

Hi everybody! Well I made it through my final surgery for my double implant! The last few weeks has been pretty intense I’m not going to lie. The pain associated with this one has been really bad as well. At times it’s off the charts. I’ll be honest I’m not going to hold off on how I’m feeling at the moment because then I’m not telling you the reader how I really feel. At times I want to break down and cry! In spite of all that however the surgery went well and now all I need to do is rest and get better.

Through this process I’ve gotten to know so much more about the disease that we battle and the people that dedicate there time and energy into helping us get better. If you had asked me several months back if I’d be getting surgery from a neurosurgeon who is 82 yrs old I would have said no way. Now I wouldn’t have wanted anyone else! I am in the care of the right team of people. What a big difference when your being cared for by a team of people who care and understand what you are going through.

The ultimate goal of a surgery like this is to get CRPS to go into remission. With Gods help I really do believe that we are going to see this happen.  Another time though I’ll get into some of the specifics about this type of surgery, having now experienced it. I just wanted to put up a short post tonight, and thank all of you who have been sending prayers! For now I need to go and rest. I’ll talk to you all soon.

 

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.
