Hi guys, I'm based in Maidstone, Kent, UK. Just wanted to say thanks to you all for your postings - I have been following them for some time, but in truth, haven't had anything to add until now. Been living with chronic pain for over 4 years now - seen 2 surgeons, had x-rays, MRIs and 2 spinal probes. Have got degeneration at L4-L5 and L5-S1. Disc tear at L5, leaking TNF. Abnormal L5 vertebra with large right-sided tranverse process. Scoliosis at L4-L5. Take Naproxen, Tramadol, Co-codamol and when really struggling, Amitriptyline. Also suffering with bladder problems, urge incontinence, for which I'm taking Trospium Chloride. Doing it all (at various times) - hydrotherapy, pilates, swimming, spinal manipulation, meditation, reflexology, you name it - but I've finally come to the decision that surgery in the form of Dynesis is the right next step for me. In this respect I have started my own blog about my experience - I don't know if it will be of help to anyone out there, I hope you might get something out of it - http://dynesis-kellys-story.blogspot.com/ - I've also started a Dynesis group on Facebook - everyone welcome! I'm looking forward to a brighter, drug and pain free future (I hope) x
