    Today I heard from my second opinion orthopaedic. At first he thought one of the screws from my fusion was hitting a nerve. If this was the case he would just go in and remove that screw as my fusion is in tact enough it doesnt need that one anymore. But...the disc above the two they fused is herniated. So we are going to try epidural cortisone shots because we are trying to avoid another surgery. Another surgery would weaken that disc and would possibly lead to another fusion. Ugh!! I just want this back to be ok by our wedding in November. I want to wear heels and feel feminine again. This is draining mentally!!! and of course physically!!

      Stephanie I'm so sorry! I know this must be so frustrating for you! I've had the epidural and steroid shots before and they do help. (I was in a really bad car accident)

      Stay strong mentally and hopefully your body will follow! You will be a beautiful bride no matter what kind of shoes you are wearing!
