  • Having had six compressed spinal fractures and daily chronic pain even after the fractures were healed, has made me feel as if nothing will ever change for me. I am so healthy in every other area although do have some osteoarthritis in my spine as well which does not help! My main concern is the fact that I cannot seem to regain the ideal weight I once had before the fractures which was back in July 2015. I have also lost 4 inches in height and am now only 4' 10". My clothes do not fit the same way anymore and I have Kyphosis which does depress me at times. However I do try to stay positive, but it would be so nice to be able to share my story with someone else who has the same problems as I do, as we could then help one another with various advice etc. I am a 78 year old "young" female by the way!
