Hi guys, really new to all this so looking for as much help as possible, I had a spinal fusion about 15 years ago, the operation was successful and up until a couple of years ago I only had intermittent pain. My pain is now continuous and I have had to give up work. I know absolutely nothing about benefits or what I’m entitled to, so will be pouring through your posts for some ideas on what I should do next. Thank you for allowing me to join this group xx

    Hi @jenny0410 - Welcome to the community, & thank you for joining us all. In case you hadn't found Scope's information on benefits, just go right to the top of this page, click on 'Advice and support,' then 'Online advice and support,' & you'll see the 'Benefits' section there. Just come back with any questions if needed.
