    Surgery set for Dec. 22... Need Prayers Please...

    I'm having back surgery Tuesday, Dec. 22 at 8:00am. If all goes well, I'll get to come home Christmas Eve.

    I had a knee replacement back in April and my recovery was going well, until I started having hypersensitivity, burning pains and shooting pains in my leg, foot and hip. I've had 2 MRI's, a cat scan, 3 sets of spinal nerve injections and other nerve testing trying to figure out the cause. It turns out there is severe nerve damage in my leg and my 3 lowest lumbar discs are completely collapsed.

    The surgery will hopefully prevent any further nerve damage, but the chances of it helping my current condition are slim. I can't stand for anything touch my leg, because of the pain. It makes sleeping almost impossible. I'm on such heavy doses of narcotic pain medicines that it's difficult to function some times. I've been on disability leave since April and the chances of me ever being able to work again are fading fast. If the surgery doesn't improve my current condition, my disability will be permanent.

    If you could say a prayer for me, I'd really appreciate it...
