Hello Guys

Its been forever since I have posted or been on the site. I have had issues upon issues in my life and gaming has been pushed aside for the most part til I get it together. Most recently my life changed significantly as a result of A recent surgery I had, the surgery I had was for a spinal deformity known as scoliosis which is a curvature of the spine. The Surgeon I went to said that my spine has become progressively worse in the past 6 years and il require an extensive correction of the spine, after months of waiting I was given a date for my surgery, November 14th which was the worse possible day as it was my birthday. The surgery crept up on me and I was getting a little worried and nervous but the day finally came my 20th birthday and spinal fusion surgery I was taken into the operating room and there were tons of people preparing knifes tools and whatever they were going use to invade my back and then I was put to sleep. I woke up more then 6 hours later in intensive care and then eventually was moved to the ward to further recover. The day after my surgery they started me walking for the first time with the new hardware, the pain was immense but it probably could have been twice as bad without the medication button I was given. Day 3 after my surgery they noticed I was very weak and likely anemic from the surgery so they gave me a blood transfusion which is where everything went downhill very fast because within six hours i was coughing so much i brought up blood that I was rushed to the ICU, eventually I could no longer breath on my own, all this was caused by a rare reaction to the blood/plasma given to me. no longer being able to breath on my own i was on a forced air mask that was so painful having just had surgery. Eventually things became so bad that I went psycho due to lack of oxygen to the brain I was told I was throwing stuff at the nurses and I tried to kick my own mother in the face and calling them every bad word in the book so eventually i was tied down. I fought the restraints so much that I had bruises the length of my arms I wouldn't stop so they had to put me into an induced coma which I remained for 2 days. During my episode I was having very traumatic hallucinations and nightmares of people trying to kill me and forcing me to take illicit drugs and most of these people in my episode were the nurses which made it much more real in my mind. After the 2 days I awoke by mistake when a ICU nurse left the room for a few minutes, I ripped the feeding tube from out of my throat and was yelling and screaming thinking that everyone was trying to kill me. They assured me I was safe but I never believed them until my father "Oldgeezer around these parts" showed up and I knew I was finally safe in my own head. I remained in the ICU for another week fighting off kidney failure and recovering from the respiratory distress. The cruelness of the ICU was the worst as I could not eat or drink for a very long time and the oxygen given would dry my mouth out. They swabbed my mouth but it was never enough, nurses would walk by when starting their shifts carrying coffee and food and I was stuck in a bed! Eventually I was given the right to drink and then slowly food and eventually finally moved to the ward again where I started physio again. More walking each day which took so much out of me having low hemoglobin in the blood causing severe weakness and a heart that nearly raced on out of my chest cavity hitting 170 bps, my family visited almost every day as I was lost and alone most of the time and eventually a few friends came regularly to see me each one making and brightening my day. Finally after 27 days in the hospital I was finally able to go home and recover. Today I feel great and am almost back to normal, i still have pain but nothing unmanageable. I am now looking to pursue my job in IT and get a job within the next few months.

Below are a few picture of the x-rays and scar I have 2 titanium rods and 22 screws! Sorry for the rotation issues

I have the same thing, the only way I found out about it was when I was in fifth grade. After several days of not being able to sit down without extreme pain, my mother took me to the doctor. After xrays, the doc told me I had a mild case of scoliosis. Still have it as nothing was done to correct it. Still get a little pain, but not much.  Glad you got it fixed and hopefully won't be a problem in the future..

Good to see you again FC. Sorry you had such a bad time. My brain surgery didn't have as many complications.
Hope to see you play COD at SFG soon.
Take care bud. Smile

Call of Duty,  just look for Elite Warriors Rocks and Big Bangs Voodoo in the server browser and save to your favorites.

I am also having difficulties with my life, yet the primary reason why I have not been on steam is because I no longer have a wired connection and I can not go online. I don't know when I will get a wired connection again since I am using wireless but I still want to have some affiliation with the BBGamers. I miss the servers and I really hope that I will be able to come on sometime. Until then I will mostly be playing Smite on Hi-Rez Studios. Under the name Tindera. If any of you BBG play Smite or want to chat, that's where you can find me. Until I get my wired connection fixed.
