My Husband Marc, third back surgery

We meet in 1976, got married in 1978, got one son Sebastien born in 1982, since we moved a lot  crossing our country few times.

Our wedding, many years back
15 years ago Marc, had difficulty feeling his fingers, and toes, went to a regular check up, sent to be scanned, to find out he needed a urgent neck fusion surgery,  a "cervical fusion"  a surgical procedure that links together damaged segments of the vertebral column in the neck.  They fused the lower one C4-5 and 6, this surgery goal was to prevent more tension on his spinal cord. The surgery  was a success, but it didn't stop the problem, and with the time he became disable, needed a cane to walk, and lately we bought a wheel chair.

Cause by his disability, he had to adapt to his new life, he is now focusing on art, doing ink, water color, paint and poetry. In a few months I will open a page on my blog  and a gallery on my website to share his work.

Marc Art, starting a new piece, a lot of his visual work are part of his poetry work, stay tune for a new gallery and page with his work.

The second surgery was done last August, too many years after the first one, our health system is not the best, he should of got that surgery in 2008, but the Doctor he meet in 2008 didn't render a good diagnostic, and Marc condition worsen, till he meet Dr. Jacob assistant early 2013, learning that he needed a second fusion this time for the higher cervical vertebras C2 and 3, no choice if he didn't want to be completely paralysed. This second surgery was extremely risky but fortunately he got one of the best surgeon, Dr. W. Bradley Jacob and it was a complete success. Now all his cervical vertebras are fused.

Dr. Jacob devotion for his patients is remarkable, he took the time to review Marc medical history, Marc suffered from intense lower back pain, and lost all the strength  in his legs, to help with this situation, Dr. Jacob will perform a lower back decompression surgery to relieve pressure on the nerve roots  the surgery does not correct the underlying degeneration of the vertebrae due to wear and tear of aging, however, so a return of symptoms is possible, Marc's third back surgery is today,  I will keep you posted,
