OK, I am not expecting to be bowled over with hundreds of responses but are there any other Aussie or even New Zealanders here? :D
I know 1 Aussie (RUNVS)but as far as I can work out we are on our own. <:P <br />
It would be nice to chat about things that are different from the US some things are quite different, especially with surgeries.

  • Hi there
    I live in Melbourne, I had a PLIF L2-L3 at the end of last year. Recovery for me has been slow and painful. Many things are different here compared to US.
  • I am so pleased to meet a few fellow Aussie/NZ ers here =D>

    I would love to catch up with you all and see how things have gone for you all.
    Kin - thanks so much for passing that on. I will look up that thread. Oh and you are very welcome to come here anytime. I always have room for a visitor. <:P <br />

  • How could you leave beautiful NZ for the heat and humidity of Singapore?
    Not that Singapore isn't nice too but NZ is really special.

    What is the health system like in Singapore?
