Hi and welcome to the support group.

My name is BJ1208 or ^Joy^ as you will see it on numerous responses - I have been a member with WEBMD for about 5 years and have grown to love this support group. You can click on my picture or name and read my story.

I just wanted to extend a personal welcome to each of you and will enjoy working with you.

Take care - ^Joy^

Dear Joy,

Thank you for welcoming us to the community. I have read your story and was glad to learn about the valube support you have received from WebMD over the past few years. As a spine surgeon I am looking forward to becoming an active part of the WebMD support community.

All the best
