That sounds like good news Pete? It took a long time for me to get a diagnosis as my neuro condition is rare. It sounds a bit odd but when I was finally diagnosed I was relieved Smile

Wishing you well and hoping you get a speedy diagnosis which is easy to treat.

All the very best mate.

Mark

Now in Leeds hospital waiting for a biopsy. Just underneath the air ambulance landing pad aparently, so might be exciting to see one land. Sadly my MAM isn't with me as I had to travel light.

Today's update : Instead of doing the biopsy they're now just going in to repair my spine on wednesday and remove the odd bone growth that's in there. Because they're worried about damaging nerves the first part of the operation will be done through my stomach to get to the front of my spine, then they'll roll me over and put some sort of plastic scaffold to support my back. After they've sewn me back up they'll send off samples for analysis to make sure the bone growth wasn't some kind of nasty cancer, but it sounds like they're sure it's nothing but a nonmalignant tumour. Got a couple of months to recover afterwards but I'll have to take it easy. It's been one heck of a year so far after going from backache to an inflamed disc to possible cancer and now a somewhat major abdominal operation!

 Embarassed Ah. Missed that, I did. Too curious about sick friends in hospital. Been there and had that done to me--it wasn't fun.

Well, I'm still here! After the operation turned out twelve hours instead of eight I've been on a high dependency ward for a few days until my stomach woke up again from the anesthetic because I was under four extra hours to make sure they got out everything they needed to. In the end they took a whole bone from my spine and sent it off for testing to see exactly what was growing in there. Now my back has two bones bolted together with some sort of cage in the space where lumbar 4 was. Over time these will all fuse together and make my back stiff, but at least I've avoided needing a wheelchair for the rest of my life. I was so happy to stand up again yesterday with the help of two physios. One day I hope to walk into one of the Action Days with my son Matthew.

I might not be able to get on the website much due to low internet on my phone.

Hey Pete, I hope you make a full recovery and get back to your normal daily routine as soon as possible  Smile

Messing about with your MAM figures, to see what poses can be had from them will help whilst your back heals  Wink

Hi Pete.

I too am pleased you have avoided a life in a wheelchair. Whilst the outcome sounds largely positive your body has been on a hell of a journey and I hope you get the support, care and love needed to make a full recovery. I look forward to shaking your hand at an action man day and meeting your son too. Wink

Very best wishes

Mark
