Buddy is a term to identify an online member at this site that you have requested or where requested to establish a friendship.
When you have members in your buddy list, you can use one of the view functions: View your buddies posts to see posts made by those members.

To become a member click on the Add buddylink on the online member profile while viewing posts. That will then send a request to that person asking them to add you as a buddy.

You can display all your buddies using the My Buddies

  • I am 3 weeks out of cervical rodiculopathy. I waited two years to have the surgery putting it off as long as I could. A disc in C7 had a small leak but ruptured just days before my surgery. The migranes were so bad, I had to sit in the dark along with impairment to my eyesight.
    I'm having problems sleeping. I cannot get comfortable on my side or my back. I can't stand the percocet. Thank goodness it's gone. Does anyone have an advice for sleeping. I would greatly appreciate it.


    Barb, Welcome to Spine-Health.

    You should go over to the section dealing with cervical surgeries. You will find much more information there. Back and Neck Surgery
