Oh the scar's nothing, you should see the hardware on the inside
You can probably tell I have had a varied and checkered life until now, well 4 years ago while running our own It service business I was working solo late. Very late, early in the morning kind of late!
At the time I would do these jobs solo, we had some business refurbishment work and with that sort of work meant I needed to move cables and stuff by lifting the desks then moving the cables, the only way to do that was to use the back of my neck, shoulders or head to do the lifting
Well on this occasion it didn't go so well. I ended up totally blowing out the C6/7 disc and doing some other damage~
I thought at first I had done my shoulder as that's where the main pain was, withing 48 hours I knew better and I knew we were in trouble!
Anyway, there were complications, operations, inflammations and irrigation's over the next 2 years!
The last was the real nasty one that totally benched me and forced the closure of the business and the financial woe we're in now. I'm still on really high levels of pain medication, my memory is shot, my vocab has been reduced dramatically and a few other issues I'm working through oh and I have put on about 25kg's
But I try to always carry a smile
Hope I haven't prattled on too much, the important message to come out of this tale is to always be body aware and be careful in everything you do.
