Mark, I am really happy for you. How's your depression and general health? Please take care of yourself. You are going to need to be strong for whatever they decide to do!

Hi Mark,

been reading your posts on this thread and the bullying thread, and others. I've said it before in a reply to someone and I'll say it again...you and everyone that goes forward to get themselves "straightened out" display such courage in doing so. Not just the surgury, but in your daily lives leading up to it and after.

Those people that have made your lives a misery by their attitudes towards you really don't have 1/10th of the backbone (no pun intended) that you all display. And you are all so willing to help and support each other regardless of what you yourselves are going through.

Truly humbling.

Hope all goes well when you see the Consultant in Newcastle.

Mark, Just don't get to un-wonky. Some of us that are permanently wonkified don't want you to get all hot and sexy looking and then forget about us! You know I enjoy being your twisted sister!

Phew, Mark, you don't know how relieved I was when I read that, I thought I was the only weirdo who felt that way

Hi Phoenix

I got a referal to the surgeon who is nearest to me and has experience in kyphosis surgery.

I had a really good gps appointment and he is realy supportive of me and that is half the battle so if this avenue gets clossrd he's willing to refer me else where

He's a really cool dr he listens takes in and understands

Fantastic news Mark Especially that he will refer you elsewhere if this doesn't happen to turn out as you would like - but I'm sure it will. I think you are on your way now....
