Remember these from last year some time?? (Yeah, these are me…)
Yeah, well, the steroid injections did nothing (of course)… and so now? Tomorrow I head up to the hospital to add myself to the waiting list for surgery. I’m heading in for a C5/6 Anterior Discectomy, with a Disc Replacement using a Spinal Kinetics M6 Device. This should be done in the next 3-6 months, which means my trip to the US will be postponed until further notice. Good thing my passport is good for another 10 years, eh?
How will this affect my roller derby?? Well… I’ll have to take about 3 months off – depending on how I heal up – and then I’ll be back at it, probably better than before… complete with unrestricted movement etc etc bullshit bullshit. WOO HOO!!
Here’s a place to check out some information on what I’m about to have done… but if you don’t feel like checking out the site, at least watch this little movie/video/whatever. It’s pretty awesome.
Thank you and good night.
