I see no reason this should not be the top "non-sticky" thread...so, I'm fearlessly bumping it because, to me, it'e more important than "were you born to be a porn star"....

Ok, many of you who have been here have heard about my health issues. The short story is, I have some major problems resulting from a broken neck in 1970. I have had 4 surgeries, 9 fusions from C4 to T3, complete with 10 titanium screws and 2 long rods. In 2006, my problem was multiplied with pulmonary embolisms (one bloodclot was so large it was in both lungs called a saddle embolism) and DVT (deep vien thrombsis) in both legs. I had an emergency technique done at that time where they rushed me to a differnt hospital in Louisville, and went down through my carotid artery and tried to dissolve and suck part of the large clot up out of my left lung. I was there 2 weeks and, according to the doctor, I shouldn't be here. That problem seems to have been taken care of, but I will be taking blood thinners for the rest of my life. Now, back to my neck. I managed to work 50/60 hours a week on a wonderful job up until after the third surgery, and went kaput on August 2007, and I haven't worked since that time. Tomorrow, I go back into the hospital to start the procedure of having a pain pump implanted to relieve my pain. I have not had one minute of pain relief since before the third surgery. Now the doctors have given up on me and say I can't have another surgery, and turned me over to "pain management" doctors. I will have the tube implanted tomorrow form my lower back to my neck, where they will try different meds on me to see which one will work best. I am currently on a pain patch(fentynal) and pain pills that hurt the liver and kidneys. This pain pump, if successful, will bypass the organs in my body and I can manage with a third less med than I am taking now! Please send me a good thought or prayer about 10 am EST tomorrow. My wife is afraid of the anesthesia, as I "died" for 25 seconds the last time and had to be coded to wake me up. I am sure everything will be fine and if I can get online, I will let everyone know that all is well sometime tomorrow evening!!!! Thanks and sorry for the long post!!!!!

Scott
My condolences.

I agree Eliza, I think it even should top the Jed, Zardoz, Fawkes thread.

Best wishes and quick recover my friend.
