Excuse my low post count I used to be a member but then it said not verified and then I could not login, anyhow from all the members on here I see there are not many from the UK, but how about posting on this tread if you are from sunny England.
The UK NHS system makes our journey a fair bit different to people in other countries, in some ways it is easier as we have no insurance to sort out but getting passed red tape and waiting lists is more difficult.
Anyhow, I am 35 years old and 3 months or so post op C6/7 artificial disc replacement, doing very well and very happy I had the artificial disc, but just had an MRI on my lower back which shows a herniated disc at L5/S1 with three other discs showing degeneration, Facet arthropathy and a small scoliosis. All within 7 months of each other, im a very keen mountain biker so this has been a kick in the shins, I also have 2 young children so picking them up is painful. Im in Bristol and attend Frenchay Hospital.
Where are the other UK folk from?
