Just in case anyone is worried about surgery; I had MAJOR surgery lasy September and want you to know there is light at the end of the tunnel and not to give up hope no matter how daunting it may be.
I have a blog which goes through diagnosis to present day if it helps.

  • Just to clarify, the Blog is my own experience of what I went through

    The second link is the surgical approach that they did. It is NOT the surgery/practice who performed this on me. My surgery was performed in the UK.
    I just wanted to add it as description to what was involved.
