after joining discussions, have a small “how to work site”, i am 70 am not real computer savay (sp. either). there’s a lot on screen, which to do first and sequence, what each choice mean? i’ve been on but other choices don’t know how to operate first, last, etc. just a short step by step and what these other functions mean. thxs.

Aug 10, 2012 · finger joint replacements and fusions in Joint Replacements

hi laury, i have severe osteo in many joints, some worse than others, have had reconstruction surgery on right thumb with carpel tunnel surgery. have to tell you the thumb reconstruction was a blessing for sure.
also have had a lot of different things done in my rt shoulder, was a hugh help.
a rod and screws in my lumbar spine, 8 m. ago, still getting better, lost a lot of pain there too. my rt big toe fused itself, no replacement done as surgeon said in time it would have to be redone, so i let it fuse. no i can’t bend big toe which is a tiny problem, now other toes getting crippled up.
my wrists are getting affected w/arth. but one thing at a time.
my close friend has rheumatoid arth. and a lot of surgery but most all has to be repeated.
ask your dr. what are all your options aside from replacements and so forth, don’t be in a hurry, decide if you can let fusion happen on it own and if you could live that way. it all depends on joint and what you want and expect. ask that dr. to discuss opions with you and what dr feels is absolutely necessary. hope this helps.

Aug 8, 2012 · lumbar spinal stenosis in Spine Health

just to be encouraging to others, my lumbar surgery was an extreme help in my life. although i am retired so i can sit when needed but i do all my housework and shop, just sit a bit inbetween, pace yourself. my constant pain is GONE and a blessing i sleep all night through with no discomfort. hope this was helpful to others, i’d do it again. there was no after thereapy or pills once past post-op discomfort. well worth it. the recovery perioddepends on the extent of surgery. best wishes!

Aug 7, 2012 · lumbar spinal stenosis in Spine Health

oh my you have had a rough time. so sorry. i had lumbar surgery and it was a lot of help i was going to let you know. but when i continued to read of all your problems i don’t know.
anyway, i couldn’t walk much or sleep, one leg had continually pain. couldn’t lay on hip etc. what surgeon saw in mri was i had 3 vertabrae extremely out of line and cord could have been severed, dics compressed. surgeon used some of my hip bone and cadabers bone as a wedge between disks and realigned spine with a rod and screws.
afterwards no hip OR leg pain but can’t seem to walk very far with ach starting. going away when sitting a bit. best wishes to you
