Hello all. Often directed to site when asking questions on my condition so decided to join you all and register.

Have had 3 spine operations (L5/S1 PLIF then L4/L5 PLIF then removal of left side metalwork as came loose).

Awaiting a fourth surgery to correct failed fusion and put more metalwork in. The usual plethora of pills plus Oramorph and just started with Fentanyl patches in addition to manage pain.

Still working full time but restricted to home working as have difficulty getting around (crutches/reclining wheelchair) and haven't been able to sit other than in a reclined position for several years now.

That's about it. Nothing new to this forum but glad to join the group.

My best regards to all.
