Bad News – I’m Back

Posted by cotojo on May 5, 2008

I would like to thank all of those that have left messages on MyBlogLog, comments here, which I will get through and emails that I have received, which I will respond to as soon as I can.

Thank you all for your support and kindness. As some of you know, I have a condition – Ankylosing Spondylitis – which affects my spine and many other joints, my shoulders in particular over the past 18 months or so. I had a major flare and needed treatment pretty quick, so I was admitted to hospital and sedated so that they could manipulate my right shoulder through its full range hoping to pop the muscle capsule below the shoulder blade back in to place.

This was not successful and they decided to keep me in so that they could fully monitor what was going on and also put me through some intensive physiotherapy and hydrotherapy, which I am sure they enjoyed as most were trained by the devil 😆

I also have prolapsed discs in my lower back and neck, about which they can do nothing because of the AS which has encapsulated them with bone growing over the discs joining the vertebrae in the spine, and I am now waiting for further treatment on both of my shoulders……again!

Please bear with me as I get back to some sort of normality and catch up on posting.

I notice that my PR has gone back to 5 again, maybe I should take more time off hahaha
