Just a word of encouragement I had basically the same problem a couple of years back only mine was just the opposite in the pain department. I had pane but not like you, my main indicator was I started loosing feeling in my fingers. When they checked my spinal cord was being restricted between #3,4,and 5 in my neck. I had fractured my neck when I was younger and never really new it. Anyway they replaced most of #3,4 and 5 and fused them together. The pain lasted for a while but it eventually went away today I can pretty much do everything I did before there are some side affects such as nerve damage a little bit of pane etc. but they are mild compared to what would have happened if I had not had the surgery done. At the time I had the surgery done they said I was just days to maybe a few month's away from being in a wheelchair.
With the advancements they have made in the medical field in the last few years (Allot of which have been made due to folding and other computer research) Infections are much easier to fight than they used to be. I am confident they will kick the infections butt and you will continue to improve. I am sure in the long run you will not regret getting the surgery done and you will be able to return to most of, if not all of the activities you did before.
Have a good B-Day day
Thanks for sharing and the kind words gramps. =)

With me ( I have already had two operations) my goal is to return to work, but this will require another operation and results are not guaranteed.Again best wishes from a fellow Teen Challenge graduate:thumb:
Well yes and no. The awesome donation allowed me to keep the sr2, and I have since decided to make it a fully dedicated folder runing linux all the time. Right now it is running 132k ppd on a 6903 but I think it has more, just im not that great in linux. But as for the surgery bills and what not, I have already sold 3 computers and have done some design work to have some money ready when they hit, most of that has already been used for pre surgery stuff/tests. When I was in the surgical hospital they messed up my pain meds and I woke up in screaming pain, and noone was giving me anything that would even touch it, because they didn't communicate it with each other what I was already on. And so the same thing continued for a day and a half of the stay and all I could do was wimper on the bed and try my best to fall asleep as that was the only relief. The doc finnaly came in on the second day and was like Why isn't he on what he came in with? he was flabbergasted that noone had managed my meds better, and there was a few other things with the staff that made the whole visit very very bad. We expressed that and they might not make us pay anything out of pocket for the surgery due to the mistake. So we are praying that works out.
But with that all being said my wife and I are in high hopes everything will work out, this community has been awesome and God has provided ways for things to work out.
