Re: Musgrove Park Hospital, Taunton

Hi all, thank you for your kind replies. I suppose I was too ill to be angry before now. It is the lack of discussion about the whole scenario that has upset me. One person says one thing and...

Musgrove Park Hospital, Taunton

Hi all, I thought I would update you following my removal of the metalwork. As you all know, I spent 2 1/2 years in pain. It seemed to ease off a bit for about 3 months after surgery, then despite...

Re: Clayton Stiitsel?

I think its unhealthy to brand things as either right or wrong. I have met lots of people, especially adults, who have had surgery and it has been the wrong choice for them. Alteratively, I have...

Re: Surgery set, T4 to L5???

Huge fusion. Don't do it unless you are in unbearable pain and cannot live your life as you are. Its a gamble that I wish I hadn't taken but ultimately up to you. xx

Re: Clayton Stiitsel?

I looked at that site Sarah and I am not sure about alternative methods either, however, I have tried a few since surgery! What I would like to say is that what suits children may not be appropriate...

Re: new diagnosis, some success with diet

You're on the right track. I have found out that I am extremely intolerant to casein found in cows and goats milk since my operation. I always loved to drink lots and lots of milk (in fact the only...

Re: Ruined my life

Hi Gilly
No I don't have a name for the condition. I don't think they totally know what's going on as I have signs of "bits of this and bits of that". The doc who came out yesterday said he thought...
