Back Problems AKA Stupid Back!

Quite a few of the posts on here are where I write about the problems I have had with my back. I started writing the posts partly to get my feelings out somewhere, not caring who read them but finding some sort of peace by just writing how I felt. It was also to do with the lack of information and especially personal experiences that was out there about Spinal Cord Tumours when I discovered that is what was going on. Thankfully my schwannoma (nick named jelly bean) was fully removed in 2008 but unfortunately that hasn’t been the end of my back problems.

Since 2008 I have learnt to live with the lingering pain which is due to the damaged caused to nerves by the tumour.

Recently things have got much worse again and it now turns out I have a “L4/5 central extruded disc herniation”. So right now I am using my blog again to rant, complain and document the next part of my life journey. If you don’t like that tough because I find in helpful just to have somewhere to get my feelings out.

    Is your scar tissue causing your pain also? Did you walk a lot and or do PT after surgery. I’m seven months from my back surgery. I have really good days and not so good days. All the best

      Hi Joe, some of my issues are down to scar tissue in both the muscle and nerves. Ten years on I still have good days and bad days but I have learnt to manage it. Pilates and a good physio have been invaluable. I wish you well in your continued recovery!
