Spinal Issues

As you all know, I have been having issues lately and have curtailed heel wearing.  Well, I got the sad news yesterday.  My disc fusion from 2017 is losing it's effect and the other discs are suffering.  

Reader's Digest version is I am going under the knife next Wednesday for extensive repair.  I will be placed into a spinal cage for at least 5 vertebrae.  I don't know what recovery will be or how long.  I will be living my heeling life thru your comments.   I will keep the Group posted.  

For now I will continue to read the various posts.

Sorry to hear this.  Surgery like this is scary as a patient. I wish you good luck and swift recovery.

I don't think many Doctors are fans of high heeled shoes. I have a friend who is an orthopedic surgeon and she teases (warns) me constantly about the stiletto heels I always wear.

I called her when I read Henri's predicament and he confirmed that spinal fusions are avoided as much as possible because it does ultimately lead to stress on the adjacent discs. I did not mention that Henri loves to wear high heeled shoes but she did suggest that specific exercises to keep the tummy muscles strong was the best activity to reduce strain on the back.

Best wishes Henri.

I understand your issues about the surgery, Henri. My mother has had the same issues, and has had to have similar surgery twice, and I think for the same reason. I wish you a speedy recovery.
