Don't always beleive what you read on the net.                                       reboot 
Sometimes too much info can just confuse you and everybody is different
My doctors told me I probably wouldn't walk ,well guess what ,only use a walking stick now..


       YOU WILL BE FINE ...just have to be positive..

Use the net for van stuff and the doctors for medical stuff every ones diagnosis is different the net doesn't have access to your doctors reports and tests .
As Neil said be positive all our thoughts are with you
