Hey everyone,

Realised even though I've posted on topics I have not properly introduced myself.

I'm 22 in 2009 I had a RTA where the doctors missed damage to my L5/S1 joint which has now produced "extra bone" in the wrong place and I have arthritis in there. I'm having my lumbar spinal fusion next month hopefully only the one level although they are not 100% on this yet. I'm looking forward to having a solid base to work with and start getting my life back as most things are too painful now. The arthritis is in my left hip as well so I'm hoping once my fusion is done I can start trying to postpone my hip deteriorating anymore.

I'm from Dorset in the UK, anyone local feel free to send me a private message.

Looking to a brighter future!
