A year ago today I was in abject pain and misery, with a left arm and leg that didn’t want to work properly and a neck that screamed in agony.
A year ago today I had a disc in my neck pressing on my spinal cord and compromising it.
A year ago today I was being wheeled in to the operating theatre.
A year ago today I woke up from surgery feeling a tremendous improvement and knowing I was going to be ok.
I still have pain, and I still get those tingles and sharp pains down my arm and leg BUT I am mobile and fully functional. A little bit of pain here and there is a small price to pay for full mobility.
Now I just have to keep going to the gym and building my strength back up. I’ll be doing cartwheels in no time!! 🙂
Sadly though, no roller coasters or skydiving in my future. Sadsies! 🙂
