    Red face

    My stepsister is in the hospital. She is a junior in highschool. She has a mass cluster of cells in her brain and she is going to be admitted in the hospital for treatment. If the treatment doesn't work then she will have to have brain surgery. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] I'm very worried. We don't live together or anything. She lives w/ her mother's grandparts in MA and I live in MS. He's my stepdad's daughter. I found all this out today. I also finished my first year as a freshman in college and as I was moving I had a lot of boxes to carry and I'm not supposed to move a lot of heavy boxes or bend over for a long time. I did anyway and now my back is messed up. My doctor wants me to have a breast reduction, but I refuse to get it. If I don't I will continue to have back pains. Plus I have a pinched nerve in my back. I'm too scared to have a reduction b/c i am not sure it's gonna take away the problem. Bad times I hate it!!

    Breast reduction?
    NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Sorry, fingers typed that faster than I could stop them.
    Yes, I know I'm a sexist pig...

    Sorry to hear about your stepsister WPG.
    As far as your back goes, I had a pinched nerve for a while to the point that I lost the sensation in my leg for a few months. I didn't have my breasts reduced and it went away anyway.
    I'm not a doctor and I don't claim to know more than your doctor but I'd go for a second opinion, at the very least.

    Cheers, Troy.

    Awww, hard times indeed! All I can say in the face of misfortune is that old lame statement that everything happens for a reason, but I know that is of little enough comfort right now. At least you have friends to talk it out with though. I hope it all works out, and will include your sister in my devotions. Please keep us updated, and keep a positive outlook.

    As for the back pains, I wish I could get my hands on you (in a therapeutic way, that is ;-): massage is a wonderful healing process, and I was taught by the best there is! (Hi Valerie! Note the word 'therapeutic'!!!) If you can find a good massuse, this might be a possible option to relieve your pain.
    You might also inquire from chiropractors for some back strengthening exercises and try them before opting for more extreme modalities.

    I don't blame you in the least for balking at the breast reduction proposal, that would scare the willies out of me too.

    Ignore Fatboy's blatant sexist comments. Hugh Hefner is to blame for it all: he got to all of us, myself included, so please do try to stay just as you are! Back pain is a funny thing, it can go as quick as it comes, so there is always hope.

    I'm sorry to hear about you + your stepsis. I heard someone say, when your back goes it goes forever. I doubt thats true, but I heard its d@mn irritating...choose at your will. Personally I say take what the doc recommends, but of course desisions are to be based on your self interest...good luck! Whatever desisions ye make, don't think it wrong and don't turn back...maybe you should consider alternatives like massages at regular intervals, back reflexology sessions etc. I've heard that it helps...(from my parents!)

    Wolfpack,

    I am sorry to hear about your problems and the problems of your sister.

    As far as breast reduction, yes it can help back pain and many other problems, but get a second opinion. There are many things that need to figure in to the equation. I do have some knowledge on the subject and if you like you can communicate with me via email. I will warn you that I am not against reductions. My sister is in constant pain and yes, it is the thing that will help, but her husband rather her be in pain (and now at serious health risk) than reduce.
    I am just like a Super Hero, but without the power or motivation.................and the funky suit.

    So sorry to hear about your sister. I hope she returns to health quickly. There are lots of good doctors & hospitals in MA. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
    Tamlin, you are too kind (it's spelled 'masseuse,' though [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img] ). And I agree with you on the exercises. I also recommend a chiropractor. Also, as Copper said, there are many things going on. Your body is trying to balance itself, you can help that, be conscious of your posture. Think about your whole body when you move - from your ears to your toes.
    (oh yeah, & getting massage is real good, too! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] )

    It is true that once your back goes, it will never be the same again. Backs are very sensitive of injury.
    Sorry to hear such misfortune to you and family. I have no REAL advice for thre breast thing.
