hello all. I have been a scrub nurse for 20 years specializing in spine. I enjoy taking care of my patients and I always felt for them, I never thought I would have problems of my own. I stumbled on this site and I could not look away. I truly feel for everyone here. The last 6 years have been awful between pain in my cervical and thoracic, now a newly diagnosed lumbar. working in surgery is all I know. reading your messages has helped so much. I want to thank you!
