Finally a surgery date, this time next week....

I just wanted to let you, all my lovely readers know that I found out yesterday that my operation will be next Tuesday. I'm still in shock but I guess I shouldn't be as I've known for months that the day would finally come. I'm relieved that I don't have to wait any longer and that I will finally once again be pain free. But the truth is I'm absolutely terrified. I've never had any kind of surgery before so I guess it's the unknown that scares me. And of course the pain and the recovery post surgery. There is so much going through my mind. One of course being how much I'm going to miss my beautiful boys. But they'll be in capable hands, as will I and that's what I have to keep telling myself.

I have my admissions appointment at the hospital on Thursday so I'll find out a lot more then. And I'll be able to ask all of the questions I need. I'll probably be in hospital for 3-5 days and then I'll be going home to my parents to recover until I'm capable of doing it on my own.

For those that I know have followed my journey with this stupid back problem of mine I thank you for all of your concern and thoughtful messages. Finally the light at the end of the tunnel. And for those not up to speed I'll be having a Microdiscectomy which is basically where they remove a disc bulge in my spine. I had a fall as a teenager which did the initial damage and last year my back finally had enough and the disc gave way. So it's been a long twelve months of pain.

Yes, ouchies!!

I'll be online to post again before I go in to hospital.

I hope everyone is having a lovely week.



  1. Goodluck Beck! Hope the surgery goes well for you and that you have a speedy and pain free recovery.

  2. That's good news but I undertake shy you'd be a bit nervous. Surgery and hospitals are never fun. I'll be wishing you well :)

  3. Oh Beck, great news! Really, it is great news. I know you will be worried and nervous and that is totally normal. But you're doing the best thing for yourself long term. The short term pain and inconvenience can be worked through. It's wonderful to hear you've got good support too. I know the first thing I'd be concerned for are my boys, so understand that completely. Hope you can spend the time leading up to your surgery relaxing a bit if you can. Probably works out well it's around school holiday period too I guess. Anyway, take care and I'll look forward to reading your upcoming posts. Very happy for you :o) xo

  4. Thinking of you, hope all goes well! X

  5. Dear Beck
    I've been meaning to write to you since i read your post last week. Just wanted to wish you all the best for your surgery. Your back complaint seems a bit similar to mine, although mines comes and goes. I'm sending you good healing energy and relief from your pain. Jane x

  6. Good luck Beck,
    my mum had both knees done near Xmas last year and she tells me she still sits quietly now and thinks to herself how lovely it is to not be in pain anymore. I wish you the same thought :)

  7. Beck...Just wanted you to know I have been and will be thinking of you next week. Surgery is always nerve wracking but Im sure you will be in the best hands. I look forward to hearing about your recovery and hopefully, a pain free life soon after.

  8. Hi Beck, just wanted to send warm healing wishes to you. I hope your surgery was a success. jane x
