Have been reading over your posts for the last few days. Thanks for all the info!
I am 34 and have had CS and scoliosis for a couple of years. What concerns me is the degenerative nature of the disease and what I am to expect from the coming years.
Bouts of pain and pins and needles/numbness/loss of hand use are coming more frequently of late. Am going in for a nerve test and MRI scan soon (are these nerve tests as bad as I have been told?!)
The future of CS scares me a bit- its agony as it is so wondered what everyones experiences are of the degenerative nature of it?
I am also pretty sick of being loaded up with painkillers every time I go to a doc. Refused to take the Gabapentin on the grounds that its an addictive painkiller. Ibuprofen hates me and co codamol just make me walk around in a fluffy cloud without actually killing much pain. No good when I am trying to work.
Thanks for listening - look forward to your advice!
