I had two spine surgeries 5 years ago, had a very long but successful recovery, and am now pain free the vast majority of the time. I became very active on Spine-health.com back then and remained active here for several years, before getting totally engrossed in personal life and career endeavors. However, in a weird way I miss this site and periodically pop back on as I did today (first time in a year or two).
I'm really glad to see some old faces here and hope that you are also doing as well as can be expected. What really impresses me is that this site continues to be the warm, caring and helpful site that it always was. Due to all of you!
So to all new members, I am sorry that you had spine or related problems that have led you here but, rest assured, you will find excellent advice here and will receive tremendous support from fellow members - make the most of the spine-health.com experience!
