Daniel asked on Pluto Transit 12th: Spine, Healing Culmination
“Please do fill us in on your Pluto/ascendant journey when you get the chance.”
If you’re new here, I have chronicled Pluto’s transit through my 12th house since 2007. Pluto is now conjunct my ascendant and while Jupiter and Saturn will move on, I will not be clear Pluto until early, 2022.
You can click the link to look at my freak-trash spine, that was miraculously repaired by a highly skilled surgeon in two surgeries over three days. I have not felt a lick of pain since waking up from the first surgery. It’s mind-boggling. My back had caused me grief for more than 20 years.
Moving on, I still have my neck to deal with. Yes, that is my personal neck pictured. It has a reversed curve and the bones are currently fusing together on their own. As always, it’s a complicated problem.
Here you can see a normal spine and a spine with it’s curve reversed. My haplessness is almost comical! I mean, come on!
Believe it or not, my neck is okay as far as I am living with it. This was made possible about four years ago when a doc went in there and killed a nerve. I was told this might help me for six months or a year. I’ve been very lucky!
So my back was fixed and I had no pain at all. But then winter came and my neck began bothering me. “Bothering me” is nothing like the pain I’ve experience with my back or my neck before the ablation of the nerve. The point is, I’m not quite clear this spine stuff.
Now it’s possible I could do nothing. Springtime will come and I could be back to pain-free. But I have this great surgeon so I figured I better address this. I went to see him last week.
My surgeon feels I will have a good result using traction so this is what I’m doing. I’ll have a home traction device within a week or so. He thinks I can create some space this way.
He said if I had surgery, he would need to fuse three levels. It really sounds like something to avoid, if possible. It I stretch my neck all the time… well, I have a good feeling about it, actually.
I left the surgeon’s office and drove to a physical therapist’s office with his orders. The had a cancellation so I was seen, immediately. Another good sign!
The therapist worked on my neck a bit. As part of her routine, she put the electric stimulation stuff. It was pretty shocking, because I could not feel it on the dead-nerve side of my neck. This seemed good to me. When and if the traction fails, I will kill some more nerves. Chances are, it will work.
It’s pretty amazing, really. My situation is impossible and has been… well, throughout my life. But I’m still here and it just goes to show you, it’s up to God, what happens.
