I couldn't agree more with your comment on the MRI. Someone who has problems in one part of the spine will have problems in another as it has a knock on effect. If I could I would pay to have a top to toe MRI to find out which joints are not affected by osteoarthritis. Will be easier than listing the joints that do have it.

Hope you don't have to wait too long 🐸

Hi joed

I am so genuinely sorry to read that you have protruding discs and that you also have such a long wait for your next MRI and results. I sounds ludicrous when it could have been done at the same time? I want to sincerely wish you all the best of luck, and please take care of yourself.

All my hopes and dreams for you
