Hi! I'm new, confused and affected
The irony of being able to get support from an online community for me is that my discs in my neck are going. Which of course means that I can't use my hands.
So please excuse me if it takes me forever to reply.
I am so glad to see that I am not alone in this and yet so sad to see that others are going through similar pain.
I live on a hobby farm out in the boonies and have or had a very complicated active life. I suppose we will get to know eachother through posts because I am sure that I can't fit it all in here lol.
I have had my first surgery, a C-5&6 anterial fusion done with a piece of bone out of my hip. :?
Of course I will have to have more but for now I have to deal with the permanent damage.
I can't get proper pain medication as of yet because I never had a family doctor and so no new one will prescribe such things.
I am quite alone all the time and have no support. My current husband is a trucker. nuf said....lol.
Thanks for reading and I look forward to meeting and greeting all!!
