Well folks, do you realise that we are now over 10 years old with well over a thousand members during that time. I'm not here all the time because I'm over 80 now but hopefully I've helped many people with their spine problems.

For me I'm having a CT scan with the possibility of further surgery to straighten out the kyphosis which is causing too much lordosis. If we do the surgery I'll keep you updated
best,
Alastair :D

Hi Alastair long time since I posted anything,just to up date I have had my Charites in for 16years now and still seem to be going strong,I had a scan last year and they are still fit for purpose.I still get leg pain but I get good pain relief from my spinal cord stimulator that I had fitted in 2007 had battery changed in 2011 for one with a 9year life span,again this works well.Like you the older we get the more seems to go wrong,I had a wrist fusion done in December 2016 due to arthritis but again this worked wonders,w pain free in my left arm,I am having the right wrist fused any time now hope to get the same result.Due to my age and my pulmonary fibrosis I now have my surgery done by nerve block much better.You yourself just seems to soldier on and get on with life Alastair, although you are older than me you are to be looked on as our hope,us oldies are tough. Bye Peter

Although I only found this forum a short time ago, it is a help to read stories from others in the same boat. I am sure even those who don't join in forum chat read the many interesting articles and posts and gain valuable information, and in a way a feeling of support just knowing they are not ever alone in what is happening to them.
So thank you Alastair, you have already helped me. :)
