Welcome to this amazing forum, there's a wealth of knowledge & support here.
Just wanted to say Hi and I totally understand where your coming from, your description of how your life is sounds just like how I was, I lived my life how I wanted & the pain became kind of normal?! I covered my curves up for 17 years after all that time id found ways of concealing/hiding my hump!!
Really hope your GP/Hospital do their best by you, don't take any fobbing off you deserve the best treatment available!!
where abouts are you?
