Default You have to do what is best for you, don't forget that.....

It has been a while since I have made a post here on this forum. But, since I made a 100% recovery after surgery in November of 2016, I have been very, very busy. Since I had the LP-ESP disc put in my L4-L5 and L5-S1 it took me three years to become absolutely pain free. My recovery also included overcoming severe atrophy and damaged nerves due to my injury, but the nerves healed completely toward the end of 2019, thankfully. I really thought they would never heal. I tell you what, this was the best decision I could have made. I have my life back and then some. I find I have no limitations with the life style I live either. I finished our basement remodel, planted a ton of trees on our property, and enjoy work. I am so thankful that God led my wife and I to this disc option. Dr. Rischke was a blessing too. Him and his wife made a great team. Honestly I was not sure what to expect, but I did not want to live with the pain and being bed ridden the way I was. In the end I trusted the knowledge I had gained through all my research, trusted my wife, and trusted God with my recovery. It was not easy for sure, but ultimately you have to do what you feel is best for you, and for your loved ones. I know my wife and children wanted their husband and father back. My wife and I now have four children and feel very blessed for what we have. Life is hard and is not easy, but we make the best of what we have been given. I hope the best for you. Do not give up, ever.
