My back is getting worse. I know surgery has it's risks, but this is ridiculous.
I have tried alternative therapies my entire life and it's not getting any better.
If anything it's held off the need for surgery for longer than the average person (most people get the surgery at 16 and I'm..*cough* much older).
My back will look something like this when it's fixed
I'll also be minus a coccyx. The recovery is long and hard apparently, but the family have all said they will help. I'd be in hospital for at least a week (half of that in ICU) and it will be 3-6 months before I can do housework.
I'd need to get around in a wheelchair when I go on long outings to the mall etc
I'm really nervous and also excited. I guess I am posting this to gather a cheer squad I've seen how awesome you all are at that, with Clea and Di and I want some
