    Hi Wendy

    I suffered with SPD whilst pregnant with both DD's & ended up in wheelchair. After birth of 1st DD, the pain settled down but with 2nd DD I had SPD from 13wks pregnancy & used a wheelchair for a year after her birth. I still had lots of pain & was referred to the pain clinic. I had Jodie in 2002 & in 2004, I had cortosone injection which lasted for about 6 months - I had a couple of these injections & then they decided that they would try an epidural. I had this in May 2005 & I have not had any major problems since. :)

    I can honestly say though, that if it did come back (hopefully it won't) I would have no hesitation in going to Disney & using the electronic scooter (though I was a hopeless driver!!!)

    Good luck to you & I really hope you manage to get the pain relief that will help you get on with your life.

    Take care xx

    Waiting is the hardest, isn't it? Once you have information, you can make a decision. I hope the cortisone injection is helpful for you.

    I've been advised to have my left knee replaced--it isn't aligned properly and is quite painful at times, particularly in the humidity. But my entire left leg is painful in the humidity, so I'm being stubborn and maintaining through physiotherapy at this point. I want to delay it as long as possible--hopefully at least 10 more years! So far so good with the exercise. Hurts something awful when I change my routine to strengthen specific ligaments/muscles and I get really stiff when I sit too long.

    If you need to rent an ECV for your WDW visit, rent from an off site place so you'll have the use of it throughout your stay. What's a comfortable walk from the car park or bus stop when you're in good shape is absolute agony when you're in pain! And don't worry about what anyone thinks--it's your holiday! :)

    Hope you're bit cheerier today.
