Hi everyone! :H
I am so happy I finally found a support system. I suffer from DDD, spinal stenosis, 9 months post op for anterior cervical fusion C5-6, C6-7. I have not spoken more than a whisper since the surgery. Have vocal cord damage to my rt. vocal cord.
Can no longer work after 29yrs 11mos. Hit my head at work and after all those years I found out who my true friend are. Pretty much no-one. I have a very supportive husband who is also disabled with a heart condition so I feel extremely guilty because he is now taking care of me. Finding it more difficult to walk everyday. I try to keep a positive attitude but I'm sure you all know its so hard sometimes.
I have nerve damage to both sides of my lower back and my left leg and left arm and hand. However, after seeing a truly unkind surgeon yesterday I was told there is no such thing as nerve damage. Gets very depressing. Anyway that is my story and I am glad to be part of your group. <:P
