Wendy I hope your daughters operation is a great success. Someone I know has just had the same operation done and is now recovering. I had not heard of it until she said about it. It must be difficult for your daughter with 2 small children.
My own daughter who has 3 children is in great pain with a cyst on her spine and on so much medication.
Please let us know how your daughter is when you can.
Thinking of you all. x

Hi Wend,

My son had this sort of operation done about 6-7 years ago. It worked a treat and relieved him of the pain he had been suffering.

I hope it all works out well for your daughter and send my very best wishes to her and her family.

Wishing your daughter a speedy recovery,Wend, and hoping all goes well. My sister in law had this op a few years back and it was a great success. BC XX

Best wishes to your daughter Wend. Hope all goes well. So worrying for us Mums I know. You don't say how young her children are, but if toddler age it sounds as if she is going to have to remember not to bend down to them or lift them so I hope she has some help. Sometimes the recovery post op is more frustrating than the op. But I am sure it will all be worth it if it cures the pain for her. <3

Thankyou Ann. Her children are 2 and 5. The 5 year old will be no trouble, in fact she will probably be a great help to her. Unfortunately, her 2 yr old son was diagnosed autistic a few months ago, having developed as he should, in every way, until 18 months. Sadly, he has changed and become quite hard work.

Fortunately, my daughter has a wonderful and supportive husband and he is taking a couple of weeks off work. Also, of course, there are 2 sets of grandparents to help when required :-)

I do hope all goes well & the op is a success, with young children it will be hard for her not to be tempted to lift them for 6 weeks, but as she has a caring partner, parents & parents in law to keep an eye on her, hopefully she can be kept from doing this.

{{{Hug}}} for Mum

I know any op on our children is worrying but hopefully this one will stop the pain.
