I apologize to my audience that I have not been posting as much as I have in the past. The reason why I have not communicated as frequently is because I have experience a lot of pain. The pain started back on April 13th. Since that time I have been in the emergency room, countless doctor visits, and physical therapy appointments.
The symptoms are radiating pain in my right scapula region. The pain travels to the top of my shoulder and also to my pectoral muscle. The pain is not limited to those regions. I, then, receive a numbing feeling in my elbow. I receive a tingling sensation in my one, two, and three digits.
I will be having an anterior cervical discectomy on my C6 and C7 vertebrae. The recovery time expected is roughly 6 weeks. Within that time I cannot lift anything above 10 pounds. Hopefully I will be able to return to biking long distances (e.g., 20-40 miles) sometime in the fall. Furthermore I hope to return to my normal life.
Please pray for me. I will keep you up date and hopefully I will upload some of the procedure and pictures of the surgery. Once again, I do feel horrendous at leaving my audience with little information about why. I appreciate any blessings or prays anyone has for me.
