So just before Christmas my mom was in and out of the hospital with stomach and back pains that pretty much no one could explain. They gave her a TON of pain meds and sent her home. Later that week, she had an appointment with an orthopedic doctor who finally told her that she has a slipped vertabrae and would need surgery. However, she couldn't get an appointment with the surgeon until January 7th (today). Up until now she's been in and out of different doctors to get a back brace, more medications, etc. They all basically told her the same thing: her vertebrae is so far slipped that her spinal cord is in danger of being ruptured, in which case she could become a paraplegic in the blink of an eye. Her surgery would fuse the vertebrae on top and the vertebrae on bottom would be fused together with the slipped one after it was pushed back in. Needless to say we were all very nervous throughout the holidays and we're pretty relieved that she would finally be meeting with the surgeon today to schedule the surgery. This morning when she called me on her way home from the surgeon's office, I picked up and all she said was "I don't need surgery."
Now, while that is great news - we're a little confused and surprised and not sure what to think. How could one doctor tell us that surgery is a must and this doctor tell us she can be healed with therapy? Apparently, from what I understand, the vertebrae that is slipped is so far down her spine that the spinal cord isn't actually intertwined in the vertebrae so its not at serious as they originally thought. Now, this still confuses me, because isn't your spinal cord long? But whatever. I'm just excited that my mom is safe and that we don't have to sit through another surgery with her (she's already had two knee replacements - on the same knee!) Not to mention that this definitely frees her up for a certain surprise party that's in the works...
