  3. Hi NscorpioredBsn, lates don’t bother me at all. It’s that I physically can’t get to my job in 30 minutes- I’m 45-60 minutes away. and unfortunately, I’ve got 10 years to go for the other conditions thanks for your input

    Nursing School and Career with Back Problems

    Sorry to say , I don’t recommend it. As someone with stenosis, neuropathy, and a recent tkr mid 50s after starting nursing at 38, I did not expect that outcome . And I can lift fine,it’s the standing for 8 hours with no break that does me in.anytime I’ve blown a disc ,it was from something stupid , like twisting to pick up a grocery bag at home. can you reconsider another vocation?or I suppose you could focus on informatics maybe ?good luck.

    Any nurses had arthroscopic knee surgery?

    I did PT. It did not help. The flap then tore more.The more I walked the more I ground it into crabmeat. leading to bone on bone. Mine also was complicated by bad confirmation too- I had varus knees"bow legged". Got TKR on one. Am mostly regretting it. Going for genicular ablation on the other bad knee. Hopefully won't feel a thing after. eta- I've had a total of 4 arthroscopies over a 10 year period. They did seem to buy me time.
  9. Geez, I had to double check that I didn't write this comment. OP I totally get you, as I am going through this right now. I would have loved OR circulator or scrub, but I live to far away from any surgical centers or hospitals to make call. I don't think one is expected to uproot 20 years of home payments to move, are they, especially when their spouse doesn't want to move. well, I hope you find something. As for the people who say it's an internal thing- why yes, it is. It's called being burned out with humanity, and the lack of "humanity" any humans have anymore. Just yesterday after all the BS, I found myself saying I wanted to live/ work in a cave to get away from all these rude jerks.

    Nope,you don’t have that wrong. And I think this bothers me now as opposed to 10 years ago,for example, because I tired.im old,I’m in pain, and we clearly don’t get along now.although he’s tired ,old,and in pain too.so I guess that’s just the way the cookie crumbles at this stage in life.It sure isn’t very enjoyable.

    Severe knee OA,how long before you got TKR?

    Ahhh,so you changed your job instead of getting the surgery.
  12. As the title states. My question is how long before you stopped working/had the surgery ? When you couldn't bear weight anymore,couldn't take the pain anymore?Couldn't perform your job anymore? Thanks

    HorseshoeBsnRn, you are blessed then, in that you don’t have to worry about footing any of the bills.That your spouse can pay for private schools and you not having to worry that the propane bill won’t be paid and you won’t have any heat(for example) My son had to go to crappy public schools ,but luckily got his work ethic from me,and is working his tailbone off and paying his own way to the community college. i guess I am droning in about the disparity because not being able to pay the bills anymore is making me sick. Oh and about fairness; I am expected to do all the house chores ,because otherwise they don’t get done period.He (spouse)has no qualms of leaving dirty dishes stacked up for a week or more.

    Questionable actions that make you go hmm?

    That's due to our sue happy society,and getting spanked by Medicare.Liability.

    Well,since we're still talking about it then,the concensus seems to be it should be a partnership,not a husband provider.I wasn't actually asking for that at all,I liked being able to have my own money to spend ( back when that was a possibility)But let's look at this if it was a business partnership.50percent of the bills ,but enjoy 100 percent of the outcome.no one is asking that said spouse should contribute more than 50percent of the bills,or be the main provider.The benefit/outcomes are house,food,cars,fuel,and utilities . unfortunately that also includes maintenance and repairs. So given all those things,shouldn't 50percnt be contributed ? My point was that he doesn't even make the 50 percent .I wasn't asking for him to be a millionaire.just pay your part.kinda hard to do when you work a loser job that wasn't supposed to be a permanent job. Ack.all upset again.oh well.
