    Hello Alison @Markinch9 and a warm welcome to the community. Glad to have you with us, but so sorry to read of so many troubles.
    There will be lots of fingers crossed for your assessment, including my own. And, should you need it, we have a lot of specialist advice available here. Just let us know. Indeed, don't hesitate to tell us or ask us anything. We're here, listening, and wanting you to feel 'at home'.
    There are a number of threads on here which might be of particular interest to you,, including that on 'Dealing with chronic pain'. Perhaps you'd like to have a look at it, and look around generally.
    Warmest best wishes,
