    Hello there and welcome to the forum. If you've already had three lots of surgery to your spine you're quite a veteran, aren't you :) ? I'm not quite sure what you'd like answers to but, if you have any questions, just post them on the Living With Arthritis forum and I'm sure lots of people will chip in.
    If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving definitely isn't for you.

    Feel for you easethepain - had my fifth lot of spinal surgery last August and still struggling. Newly diagnosed with RA and AS and like you struggling with it. I live in Ireland for the most part and getting medical treatment for it is not the best.

    Am seeing the consultant who fused my lumbar spine up this week and to discuss fusing my neck as well. Wish you well and whilst a newbi where if I can help please ask
