I had major spinal surgery 18 months ago in which I almost died. It was a horrible experience and a very rough and painful recovery. After a huge increase in pain, the surgeon ordered an MRI. I have broken screws, failed fusion, 7 bulging discs and a spinal cord displacement. All of which will require more surgery and I have been told that it will be a lot more risky this time.
Everyone keeps telling me I have to stay positive and put on a brave face for my kids (aged 5 & 7) but I just don’t know how to do it. I feel defeated.
