Re: Nhs threshold for surgery and recovery time

Thank you Kay for your detailed reply. One question how much pain is enough to justify surgery? I have pain on a daily basis but it is something I guess I've got used to, wish i didn't have to. Pain...

Re: i'm not alone

I agree with you Gilly but she doesn't see it that way. My parents still refuse to acknowledge there is anything wrong with my spine, they just tell me to stop slouching. Standing up straight helps...

Re: i'm not alone

I got really annoyed with my wife earlier today because on 3 occasions she referred to me as h.......ck. I personally hate this word. I told her to never ever refer to me that way again. She said why...

Re: i'm not alone

Yes I tend not to think about it too much until someone actually says something or gives me a strange look then I start obsessing over it again. I remember years ago when i dabbled with online...

Re: i'm not alone

I just miss doing certain things that I can't do now, swimming in public, walking down the beach without a shirt on, having a partner who doesn't find my back repulsive.

Re: Nhs threshold for surgery and recovery time

I'm not sure about the measurement of the curve, 70-80 degrees if I had to guess. My last visit to a specialist was 15 years ago, 3rd one i'd seen. On a previous thread i started I posted a...

Re: i'm not alone

Thank you for the kind messages. I chickened out of seeing a specialist the main reason being that financially it's hopeless as I'd have to give up work for 6 months. Plus I couldn't bear the thought...

Nhs threshold for surgery and recovery time

A short rant then question below. I haven't been here for ages. When I saw how bad some people's curves were here it made me realise how lucky I was. I thought maybe it wasn't so bad, just accept it...

Re: Link to photo of my back

My step-daughter photographed me today, it is the first time I've seen my back in maybe 10 years, it definitely wasn't what I expected.

Re: i'm not alone

Hi guys. Nice to meet you. Storm, I can't remember what I measured 20 years ago, it was over 50 but certainly was below 70, I know that. My first specialist said it was relatively mild compared to...

Hi david. Just watched your video, your spine looks so straight. I'm happy you're doing great. I need to get my curvature measured. I haven't seen a specialist in 15 years which was the last time I...
