The good news is that he did not have to do a blood transfusion. He also had some Xrays taken to see how things were progressing. This was the first time I had seen what was done inside. I was astonished to see that two vertebrae were essentially missing and that they were replaced by two titanium rods and 4 large screws that held the rods to L3 and L6 , with L4 and L5 being the ones missing.
He was surprised to hear that I had only taken 5 pills for pain since I left the hospital, and that I was doing a few things that were on the not -to-do- list.
There have been a whole bunch of people praying for my speedy recovery in the church and I am positive that that had a major influence. I also had a very strong belief that the Lord would assist me through this. Never underestimate the power of prayer!
The Doc seemed very satisfied and gave me a prescription for physiotherapy to get my back muscles tuned up. I am still under the directive of no heavy lifting and no twisting.
All in all, a very good day!
This is kind of what it looks like, but not the same.
