Hi Chantelle

I just read your post and am so sorry to hear of your plight. I'm afraid I cannot offer any help other than empathy, but is it possible for you ask to see another Consultant, or another member of your multi-disciplinary team to help? There must be help available for you surely. Have you had a scan to check the positioning?

Kind Regards
