Default Tests

Well I've had more tests than I knew were available! .. blood tests, ECG, Lung function tests, MRI, CT Scans, full length x-rays, stretch and push x-rays, bone density scans, bike test with integrated ECG and lung function tests ... NHS in Newcastle was brilliant .. never more than 5 minutes wait for any test!

Not entirely sure what the next steps for me are but I'm seeing Mr Gibson next Tuesday 8th to get the results of all this to see what he can do with my wee curve!

Good luck with your appointment Paul, sounds like you've had a full MOT
Me, a Mod? Nah ... I'll always be a rocker

Hi Paul, just wanted to chime in....

Its hard for me to say much in regards to your spine, but I see you were living in Africa. Where was this and for how long?

My surgeon is from South Africa...

Be sure to keep us posted on what transpires....

Yes - it does feel like a full MOT - hopefully I passed! Looking forward to seeing Mr Gibson tomorrow and yet not looking forward to it at the same time!

Rod - I lived in Malawi - kinda near Mozambique and Zimbabwe for about 12 years as kid - so until 1974 when we came back to the UK.
