hi I had a accident back in 2000 (please don’t judge me I was 24 stone then) on a bus and fall badly on my back and never did anything about it till a couple months later when i suddenly got shooting pains in my lower back went to to the doctors they gave me some tablets to take.
But since 2000 (i have lost loads of weight i am now 16 stone) i have had really bad pains in my lower back and I had a MRI scan 2 years ago and it showed I had a lump on my spine and signs of wear and tear but I was referred to a another Hospital and that’s when they told me it was arthritis from my neck downwards to my lower spine and I had another MRI scan at this hospital and it showed my neck wasn’t right either and my hips aren’t good either I feel like a 80 year old lady in a (38 year old body) so I am on so many tablets for the arthritis and nothing is working
I have now been told I have to have morphine patches and have steroid injections in my hips I struggle so badly and I have had to have a bath seat for when I need a shower cause I can’t have a bath cause I am scared that I will fall I can’t expect my 13 year daughters and my partner help me they both help me get dressed and underdressed every day
I can’t even sleep probably cause either side of my hips hurt and my back hurts all the time
I also found out I have a cyst on my right ovary aswell
I just want to either have surgery on my back or be in a wheelchair
