So..my history is in my signature line.

At the moment I am lying on the couch at about an 8/10. if I try to move it gets work.

Anyways, I want to say hey to everyone, and I am sorry that everyone here is going through similar issues. This is not an easy life to live but we all can at least support eachother :)

  • the emerg MRI they did yesterday didn't have contrast...after any surgery you have to inject contrast before the MRI so they can distinguish between scar tissue and regular tissue.

    the radiologist can't see much of anything if contrast isn't used! so she called me this morning to tell me to come back on monday morning to redo it.
  • Hi Gucci,

    I was 24 when my back pain started. 17 years of increasing problems before I finally had surgery.

    Wish you the best,
    Coach Mike
