    Hi @debbiej68 and a very warm welcome to the community! Thank you for taking the time to share this with us all. I am really sorry to hear this. Have you got a specialist who you could speak to? They may be able to offer some form of physio. Please do have a look around and let me know if there is anything that I can do :)
