Hi AlaskanJ, I looked efter my husband too until he died back in 2004. If you ever need a shoulder or support, I am willing to listen. I know the nightmares of having someone we love in pain, watching them go down hill and having to watch like having my hands tighted behind my back. But we just have to keep on keeping on for the kids sakes too! cheers Rena

Welcome to the team! Believe me, I know how tough back surgery can be! My husband, whose primary disability is Cerebral Palsy, had neck/ back surgery (I can't remember which disc was herniated, but it was one of the ones near the base of his neck) the end of August, and, yes, he's getting better, but his recovery has been a rough one at times. I look forward to getting to know you more on the team!! Becky

Hello. I've been caregiver for my husband for the past five years following failed back surgery. He's now almost entirely wheelchair-bound and tied to his pain meds. I'm hoping this forum may serve as a sounding board as I work to keep myself as upbeat and fit as I can.
