Being born with a congenital spine defect. Lived with it until the last few years,then had surgery and I improved until I had a heart attack. Congestive heart failure. Depression, weight gain and severe back pain. My balance is so far off that I need support just to walk. I am so shorter breath and everything's a big deal to do. Any alternative procedures I am willing to try.
