Im so glad i found this site! listening to people who are going through the same as me helps so much.
Iv had back problems for years, starting with scoliosis and having corrective surgery at 30 and the following 6 years having 5 revision surgeries for loose screws, prolapsed discs and tears in the cerebral fluid sac, most recently having metal rods removed.
But still the pain is there.
I have 4 children and try so hard to be normal but its a daily struggle. I get asked everyday if i feel better because i may look fine, like its a headache, most of the time i say yes just because i havnt got the energy to explain yet again why im not okay......i just say "yeah im fine"........but im NOT 'fine'.
