  • Well I'm back and really happy to read from you guys , i dont know what PM means but i will find out. men it was an OK day today pain somewhat there but not there ( uncomfortable but able to function. hope you all doing great
  • You are not alone anymore! Lots of people here have issues with their friends and family not understanding their pain. Remember that people that have not experienced chronic pain have no way to fully understand it. You will find lots of friendly people here that wiil understand and support you.
    BTW- Take a look around the forum. We have had lots of conversations here about this very subject.

  • You will meet lots of wonderful people here ready to answer all of your questions. Oh and the jargon. You'll catch on. PM means Private Message. Sometimes it's also used to discuss Pain Management. I promise you start reading all of these posts and you will know your spine from one end to the other. My hope for you is that you are getting better and not just used to the pain. Everyone heals differently and you will find that out by reading around here. I can't relate to back pain because I had surgery on my neck ACDF surgery. But we all work together around here. Popping back and forth between forums because sometimes problems we see we can relate even if we haven't had the same surgery that you've had. Like I now know where L5 and S1 are and I didn't 2 months ago. And I read a lot of posts about it just to educate myself even though that isn't my issue. Again welcome and we look forward to hearing how you're doing. Questions just ask away. I promise somebody will answer you if not many people. :H
  • Welcome to Spine Health. Some of us are quite krazy, so I'll warn you now. =))

  • Yes and sometimes we around here believe that "C" is the Queen of Krazy. :))) But there's lots of wisdom to be gleened from "C".
    Oops I almost forgot to capitalize Queen and Krazy and that is a proper name deserving of capitalization. :)
