dream

im down helping my mom out, who is recouping from knee surgery.

i got out of bed, the ancient mattress i slept on at my parents house (and i mean ancient..50 plus years old without an ounce of exageration) has made it impossible to stand straight and popping 1600 mgs of motrin to combat the pain, and i wonder...will they someday have spine or vertabre replacement surgery like they have knee replacements???!! i want to be the first candidate for one....*whimper,cries*

I spent every lunch hour last year trying to get through on the phone to get interviewed for a disc replacement study that was starting. 8Bazollion people were trying to get in.

There's always hope for Medical Science.

Don't know if this would help?

My mom had this done and she found a lot of relief from it. It's a electric stimulator that blocks the pain receptors to the brain. Look into it it may give you some relief
