60 Years with AS

Last updated: March 2022

I can say to other sufferers that you can get through this.

I was diagnosed at the age of 17 and I am now seventy-seven with minimal aches and pains from the AS.

I was around forty-five when my pain started get easier and wasinformed I had five discs in my spine that had fused together.

So, keep fighting this wicked complaint and I hope you, like me, can return to a nearly normal life
