yesterday i was brought into hospital for what i thought was just a pull on my back,i had fallen over and it had been annoying me,[we,ve had bad snow for the first since i was a little girl! i,m 46yrs now!]i had to go to my doctor,s for a bloodwork result,while there i asked him to have a look at my back,before i knew it i was being carted of to hospital!my son came with me, a doctor who i,d never seen before looked at my x-ray that i had to have when i first got here, and before i knew it i was on a board thing,he then told me "how the hell you are walking is beyond me?",he then informed me that had i slipped a little i could have ended up paralised! then he told me i was staying in hospital as i needed surgery,i was shocked i honestly thought it was just a pull,he then explained that i had a little fracture and i needed to have it fixed! then i ended in theatre having surgery,it turned out my fracture was actually a broken bone in my back! i have had a metal plate and some screw,s to stabilise the break in my back,since i had the surgery i am only allowed to sit up for half an hour and i have a jacket thing i have to wear,i can,t understand how a little fall could cause me to have a broken back? also the doctor who did the surgery told my son "your mum has gota very high pain threshold,what does that mean?" how do they know? i live with acute chronic pain 24/7 but surely i would have known had i broken my back? is it really possible to walk around with a broken back? i,d be grateful if anyone who has experianced this kind of thing could tell me how long it took for them to heal and if anyone has gone through this kinda thing? i can.t deny i,m in a lotta pain and since the operation i have felt uncomfotable,i am not allowed to sit up for too long,the doctor had told me yesterday i could go home now there telling me i could be in longer! i,m pretty ticked off i wanna get up and walk yet i,m not allowed,could this also have been the cancer that has maybe weakened my bones? i really would welcome any advice right now take care everyone love shaz xxx

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips. Not interested in being with couples and kids,,,I realize a cruise ship will have a portion size of families and couples, but perhaps they also put together a part of the cruise ship for groups of widows/widowers????
