When I had my back problems back in 2010 I was almost in for one of these ops:


Caution - bit gruesome ...

I don't know why, but I've expected to see something a bit more like this:

Just had the hospital letter. D-day is 27th September, so it will all be over in 2 weeks.

Good luck, hope all works out ok.
Got me thinking a bit about my own back problems (as if they can be ignored Rolling Eyes ), and part of me wishes I had never read this thread!

Many thanks. I found you've got to push the NHS, referral from your GP to your area physio service, then an MRI scan, then see the consultant, then move to an op if he thinks it's worthwhile.

I had no problems there because of the extensive damage my backs sustained.

I was talking to a mate, Mark Davison who runs Motorcycle Tyres UK at Harold Wood. He's been having back pains for some time and I think I've convinced him to take it to the next level. His symptoms did sound remarkably similar to mine.

I had almost nothing to do with the NHS until I had heart failure. I went to the hospital walk in centre and the next minute I was in a bed, wired up like Frankenstein.

I certainly have had no complaints about my treatment and others who have serious issues have said the same.

It's the less serious treatments that people expect yesterday that seem to be where the poor old NHS gets lambasted.

I was watching a programme about some NHS area stopping IVF trying to save money and all the women screaming about how you have ruined our lives now we cant have treatment for kids on the NHS. Perhaps nothing like that should be NHS, just injury and illness treatment.

Anyway, good luck for the 27th. Have you got to go to a specialist hospital for that?

I, on the other hand, have seen rather too much of hospitals Rolling Eyes

Plus, being a smoker who's not likely to give up, I don't really feel I ought to be taking up more valuable NHS resources.

That shouldn't really have any effect on treatment, certainly initially. It's not illegal, like drinking. I can agree with specifics, no liver transplant unless you are alcohol free etc. but where do you draw a line with lifestyle. No smoking, no rugby, no mountain climbing, no motorcycling? Shocked

No, I think smoking is a bit different. If you know it's going to kill you and you carry on, you only have yourself to blame. I always think it's like a kind of insanity; you know it's going to kill you, yet you persist in doing it. Of course, if I found it easy to quit, I would.
The other things you mention are about living life to the full, and I don't think many doctors would proscribe such activities, apart from drinking to excess of course.
