Good Morning Roxy,
You are in
for lots of pain. No use
pretending all is going to be easy, because it is not. I am not one to sugar coat things. I want the truth, so it can be dealt with. I would like to say it is like a bed of roses. There is beauty around, but with thorns. It is all in how we handle and take care of it.
I, too, have had multiple surg, with the shots, tests and so on. All of it forms this scar tissue around your arachnoid something lining...
