    So I am a 28 year old man,

    in good shape. I just found out I have SMA. I was released from the hospital after 100's of tests. But I'm glad I finally know what I have. Has anyone else wondered why these unbearable pains start later in life??? So now I'm at a crossroad, has anyone had the surgery?
