Hi everyone, newbie here whom currently resides in Tulsa, Oklahoma. I've been reading the spine forums for quite some time now, decided to join the conversation. So much knowledge here I am truly blown away. About me, suffered multiple T-Spine & L-spine fractures back in 2006 due to hockey injury. Was told they would heal & I would be pain free in the near future. Unfortunately it created many other problems. Multiple disc herniations in all 3 areas of spine. Scoliosis 30° Congenital fusion of many facet joints in T-Spine, Moderate Scattered Degenerative Disc Disease, Spontaneous Idiopathic Spinal Cord Herniation T-spine & many other issues. Right now we are scraping money together for my first surgery which is out of state. Any info you would like to share please drop me a line or two. I look forward to conversing with all of you!
