I COULD NOT MOVE AT ALL IT WAS SO PAINFUL

I WAS TAKEN TO HOSPITAL AND I WAS PUT ON A WARD,I HAD M.R.I TESTS DONE TO SEE WHAT WAS THE PROBLEM.

I HAD A SLIPPED DISC AND I WAS DIAGNOSED ALSO WITH SPINAL CANAL STENOSIS.

I WAS SENT HOME AFTER 2 WEEKS AND TOLD BY MY DOCTOR THAT I WAS ACTUIALLY BORN WITH THE DISEASE BUT IT HAS ONLY JUST BEEN DETECTED ..

I HAD TO BE PUT ON A WAITING LIST FOR A SPINAL OPERATION ...

6 MONTHS LATER AND THE TIME ARRIVED.I WAS WHEELED TO THEATER WHERE THAY REMOVED L2,L3,L5 AND I ALSO HAD A LAMANECTOMY PLUS A DECOMPRETION IN MY LOWER LUMBAR.....
