Alan, so glad to see you back on here but so sorry to hear about the trapped nerves!!!  Sounds awful - thank goodness for your neighbour!!!  

If there's anything I can do let me know.  

Have they tried physio?  I had a similar problem (although not as bad as yours) and physio has made a huge difference - I expect you're on huge painkillers - they made me very wobbly and I wasn't able to drive.

Good luck - at least you can type 

Have as Merry a Christmas as you can ..................... although if you're on painkillers you're probably not allowed to get too merry

If you dont mind needles, acupuncture may work, I am half way through 6 weeks of sessions for trapped nerve in my back and I can now honestly say it has made my life so much better and reduced the pain levels significantly.

Hello Alan, good to have you back. The move seems like a nightmare, but it sounds as though you've survived it with good humour. Try to relax and recover a bit, leave the garden until the spring.

Hiya Alan.  Sorry your health isn't quite as you want it but here's wishing you big improvements.  Had to laugh at your greenhouse situation....sounds like a Norman wisdom film
