About Me: Female, 50, Tarragona, Spain, member since Jan 2008
I am a 42 yr old single mum living in Catalunya Spain. I live in a large house in the middle fo a field and love outdoor life, animals, sport, the mountains, beach, snow, sun. people, entertaining, eating out or in, working hard, socialising etc I have been sick for so
[More]me time with a very bad back resulting in surgery for a hernia. During that surgery the surgeon accidently nicked the protection of the spinal cord and I lost a substantial amount of the liquid surrounding my brain, I have had two more surgerys to rectify this and am now living with constant severe daily headaches. I was in hospital for 10 weeks for the surgerys and then sent home where I have been on almost complete bed rest since. I cant sit for any time at all nor stand, and have severe pain in my lower back and right leg down the sciatic nerve. I have hit a brick wall with the medical profession here as the trauma team say the latest scan shows nothing and that they dont know what to do and the neurosurgery team say Im not their problem I am the problem of the Trauma team, Does anyone have any advice as I cant continue living in such pain all the time.
