RECENT UPDATE: Possible 3rd Neurosurgery for Laura

Unfortunately, we found out in the follow-up appointment this past week that I have a herniated disc between C6-C7 vertebrae and further instability with overstretched ligaments between C6-T1 vertebrae (due to my EDS). This is causing me significant pain in my neck and will most likely need to be operated on. Continue reading “RECENT UPDATE: Possible 3rd Neurosurgery for Laura”
