I was hit by a faulty pharmacy sliding door in September which broke numerous vertebrae. I have lost 5ins in height and have been flat on my back for most of the time . I want to warn anyone on steroids to make sure you get dexa scans regularly.
I have a smashed disc that has entered the spinal column and am waiting to see what can be done and I'm having another mri on Monday . I had a bone marrow test last week 're Behcet's etc. It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, they are looking for another disease that I may have as well as all the other problems.
Still, I've caught up with all the telly, had to get a cleaner in and had all my drinks brought to me. Teary at times but at least we all know what terrible pain and discomfort is so it's just more of the same really. You couldn't make it up could you. Every time I say I'm feeling better it gets worse so I daren't say anything now.
Does anyone else find that? Also if anymore able bodied, disease free person says look on the positive side I'm going to get up from my bed and smack them. Don't forget the dexa scans girls and boys.
