I met real life friend in Spine-Health

Nick.nyNNick.ny New York,NYPosts: 121
Few days ago replaying in a topic about train rides I noticed something which got my attention.A person with injuries similar to mine had an terrible incident by using the NYC subway system.now because of personal and family health issues I was on break from SH for six months and that was my first day back,and didn't pay much attention to the name of the person who was replaying to the thread and replaying to me to my question that the description of that incident sounded like NY. After confirming that it was NYC something was passing from my mind about a person I knew with similar to mine injuries. Also last Tuesday had appointment with my orthopedic surgeon and I asked him about that person Nick whom i haven't seen since last October. I was told he had other health problems and two surgeries (other than orthopedic)recently. after that I spend couple of hours looking back for Nick's previous posts it wasn't very difficult to find what I was looking for.then I PM Nick .To my happiness he replay and confirmed what I was suspecting : he was the friend I was looking for.Small world, my old friend Nick.
"nicky74"and myself we have the same orthopedic surgeon the same spinal surgeon we used to do P/T same days seating and exercising next to each other and jocking about our misery having coffe together and talking about our families, then for personal problems I stopped P/T and we never met in doctors appointmen .Thank God and Thank Spine-Health for giving me the opportunity to meet a real life friend in these forums!!!!
