Hi Starbug, Hope the brace helps you. It's as pity they don't have a clinic there where you could get your brace monitored. Let us know how you get on. Best wishes

Hi All
My Name is Diane. I am 56 and have just finished all the testing for a planned operation. I am seeing the surgeon again this thursday. I am glad I have found this forum before I saw him as I now have more questions to ask. I don't think I took a lot in on the first appt. I am very scared about surgery but I do feel a little better after reading this site.

Welcome Diane. I think we are all very scared about having this surgery. Do you have a date set? Ask any questions you can think of, because the fewer question marks in your head, the better you'll feel about it. Lots of us here have had successful surgery and for many of us, it's transformed our lives. Wishing you the best of luck.

Hi
Welcome to the forum. Hope we can all support you through your time of surgery. Yes been scared and the time leading up to surgery is the worst time. It is so worth while having surgery to take the pain away. I am now just over 6 months post op and was only thinking yesterday I some times am now forgetting about the rods in my spine yeh. Keep us updated,
Rosie
And PS I am 48yrs, not a spring chicken

Hi Diane, welcome to the forum. I ditto Jen & Rosie and its true, you do forget about your rods. I actually forgot about my 3rd year anniversary this year as well! We should have a in-person Meet & Greet like they do in the States (not copying or anything!) Gather all in one State and have a BBQ or something. We could all wear names badges with our Alias.
Then alternating states, we could meet yearly and see how everyone is progressing.

Hi Diane and welome!

I am another older member and recovering from two surgeries over a year. And surviving!

Yes, I have also thought we should all get together somewhere. I would do my best to fly up.
