    Thank you so much! It is really refreshing to come on here and know that everyone understands what you are going through. I am only 24 but the pain was so unmanagable it was affecting my maarriage...I never wanted to do anything, my career just all aspects of life. But now that I am recovering from the surgery, as tedious as I know it is going to be, and as hard as it is to rely on other people to do what I know I should be doing every day I know it will improve my quality of life 10 fold.
    Thank you for the help with terminology, if I need any help I will for sure be asking.
    Good luck with your MRI results I hope you find relief from your pain soon! It is the best gift to be given!
