I don't know if anyone remembers me but a few weeks ago I posted about me not having any hope. It was right after a doctor's appointment where I got told "you'll be in pain everyday for the rest of your life" and obviously I was devastated and bitter.
After being told I'd never have a painless day again, my parents refused to give up. They booked an appointment to a new (and very pricey) physiotherapist. At the appointment I got the same diagnosis: exaggerated lordose, a spondylolisthesis in my lower back, _really_ bad joints, vertebra stiffness in my upper back and that I'm too flexiblea and some other weird medical words BUT her diagnosis for me was way better: if everything goes well, I might be pain free in the next 6 months!!!!! After the age of 13 (doesn't it suit well that the pain started when I was unlucky 13) I might have the first pain free week in only 6 months!!!!!!!!
I'm, ofc, still gonna have pain days from time to time and I'm gonna have to keep myself healthy and be gentle to my back for the rest of my life but as you all know, that's nothing compared to being in pain 24/7.
I have my hopes up but I'm still realistic. My PT is gonna be my new bff and I'll have to do my exercises every single day etc etc but I'm gonna allow myself to be hopeful for one last time and see what happens in the next six months.
Wish me luck!
