Hi Magnumlady, i know how hard it is to fight the medical community i just hope and pray your son does not have to go through the poo poo pants pain and knockbacks some us have had to endure

Were all here fighting your corner with you (well in spirit at the very least)

You are a great mum and your love for your family shines through, i know you probably did not need me to tell you that but sometimes we all need a shot in the arm especially the parents

Keep fighting and be rest assured we are all here in spirit fighting with you

mark

I just hope we can help you somewhat no matter how little in your fight, i for one know just how hard it is to fight the system and i just hope that i can help in what little way i can to get you the treatment your son so deserves

Whatever i can do i will, if its just a shoulder to cry on then let my bent and twsited shoulders bear some of your weight

I have split the discussions re self esteem and made a new thread as it is unrelated to the gallery. The new thread is titled Self Esteem and is still in this forum

Further surgery at 18 (ant release/pos fusion extended to L3 to include lumbar curve, costoplasty) and 25 (another costoplasty).

Diagnosed with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome aged 34; scoliosis almost certainly due to this rather than being idiopathic.
