Hello I have just been told by my GP that I have OA through my whole spine. I have had 2 flare ups in 3 months , both meaning on some days I could not walk. I am waiting to see the physio. Prior to this I was attending the gym doing strength training and walking everyday. I haven't been able to even consider the gym for the last month and the amount I walk has been halved. This has devastated me as I was on the road to recovery from Oesophsgeal Cancer, surgery and 2 9 week rounds of chemo. Chemo, the gift that keeps on giving. Because of the surgery which turned my stomach into my osophageous I cannot tolerate large doses of pain medication for too long. I will be watching the forum avidly for pain management tips x x
