I had the titanium spring inserted in my spine & I can walk again. My leg gives way now & then, but I'm thankful I can walk. Still in an enormous amount of pain though. They've discovered I need a disc fusion as there's a tear in the disc, that's allowed small nerves to grow through, & they are creating nerve pain in both arms, hands, legs & feet.
My P.T.S.D ( post traumatic stress disorder) is classed as chronic. I'm attending therapy for this & it's going really well. They are trying to eliminate some of my triggers, & are teaching me what I was conditioned to think, & feel as a child. It isn't easy, but I am determined that I will do this.
I'm optimistic that I have a brighter future.
