There was no way I could face the drive down to Marbella and back, the car always make my pains worse, it is not just the position that car seats force you to be in but the bumps and bangs on the road.
My muscles on the lower part of my back felt like they were going to go into spasm and that scares me the most because the pain is just un-bearable!!!
I wrote to Dr Ayllon to tell him that I wasn't going to make it, I didn't want him or the teacher thinking I couldn't be bothered, more like I couldn't get there on my own steam!
So far I have only managed to get to class once a week as every time I go to class, 2 days later I am in pain, most unusual.
I appreciate that I no longer have Scoliosis as such but I am still a Scoliosis patient and I do still have rods from T5 to L1 and they do give me trouble in life, this much cannot be denied.
Tonight we were doing an exercise where we had to lean forward and keep our spines straight, I had awful pulling up the top part of my back, it felt like my skin was going to split and the rod pop right out - not good, don't like that feeling one bit.
There is also another exercise where we have to lean on our sides, knees together and legs on top of each other, our arm bent at the elbow and the other arm in front of the chest, we breathe in and lift the knees off the floor to become straight, I have problems with this movement, I feel bad pressure on my lower spine and again the feeling like I am going to snap.
I spoke to the teacher after class for the first time tonight and explained all of these issues I am coming up against, she is going to speak with Dr Ayllon and see if they can help me further, next class she wants me next to her so I can tell her if it hurts and change the movements to suit my spine better. She felt the rod at the top of the back and called me "Robocop" - LOL!
I will see how I feel in the morning and Thursday morning and hope I can make the class twice this week for once.
