The neck can be a tricky subject. I had some work done on my neck because of a nerve issue which affected my right shoulder. Dr did some minor work on my neck after being told a 3 level fusion was needed. I have recovered with no ill effects with my neck or arm.

 

I hope all tests show no damage in neck. My prayers are with you daily.

Got to my Dr appointment about blood thinners for upcoming surgery.  He will send the needed paperwork to my surgeon, so next week I should be in the waiting list for surgery.  Will for sure be at least the last week of May, possibly into June.  I will have to give myself shots of thinner that just lasts 24 hours each for 5 days prior to surgery.  My Coumidin stays in the system to long, so I have to switch to this short acting shot form.  Last shot the day before surgery, then after I leave the hospital I may have to take a few more days of shots, but the surgeon will determine that.  Then I go back on my normal thinner.  Never given myself a shot, and if I can't bring myself to do it, we have a neighbor friend who will for me.  I figure if I can do it once, then I'm good, but that remains to be seen.

It will feel so weird at first but over time it will become habit, everything sounds good.

My wife has been on the shot form of blood thinner for several years now. It always amazes me how she can give herself a shot.

Daniel, before long you'll be good as new. Dad has his Coumidin levels checked and managed every week. The Drs. are always changing his dosage a little bit.

 

Maybe Teresa can give you your shot everyday to help you out, tell her to think of you as a new calf !! :poke: :D

At least when on Coumidin, my levels have been spot-on every single time it's checked.  I looked it up & the needles aren't long so I feel confident I can give them to myself.  Ya gotta to remember I'm so used to dealing with needles up to match stick size & up to 2" long.  I can slap those big ones into a cow & doesn't bother me one bit....but me....different!  :smilewink:

Sorry if this has already been said but Diabetics give themselves injections all the time so I don't think you will have any problems. Needles have never bothered me but giving myself the first one would be a little concerning.

Yeah, I'll be reluctant the first self-shot, but I'm sure it'll not be a problem.

My mom was scared to death the first insulin shot she gave herself. Now she just jabs and doesn't think about it

Surgeon's assistant called & she has to consult the surgeon, then I'll be on the surgical schedule.  I'll know on or before Friday if it will be the 18th or 20th of this month.  A bit nervous about it all, but ready to get it dealt with & start the healing process.  My neck hurts a lot today.  Had to run into town, so I had Teresa drive.  So ya know it's bad, as I hate not to be the driver.

Glad to hear your getting this done. Like you said the sooner you can start healing. I'm sure you'll get use to giving yourself a shot after a few times...I would be nervous too. Keep us up to date & many prayers will be with you.

Next Thursday I go in for pre-admission blood tests & the like, then on the 20th I go in at 10am for neck surgery.  Sure dread it, but look forward to being healed & in better shape.
