Hi everyone, I'm a 62 year old woman with SCA6. Although I had to retire from hairdressing, I feel I've been coping quite well. I walk with a stick. I find stress always makes me worse, so I've created a great bank of friends and of course my family. Monday 8th may, I was pushed over by a dog. I've had a traumatic experience as the ambulance took 2 hours, then they couldn't get a line in for pain relief. I was finally operated on Thursday. I was wondering if anyone else has had a broken leg and how they got back on their feet. I'm finding it very difficult and stressful trying to do what the professionals want, as I seem a lot more wobbly now!
