They chipped a piece of bone off my hip and wedged it in then the bone regrows around it and I have two pins and screws in my spine, I don't suffer with any aches and pains just various nervous stuff legs and fingers going numb. But overall I manage fine with wfp been truck mount my back used to go off when I used a trolley lugging containers about.

I fell from about 7 foot up and fractured my cocyx (tailbone vertabrae) and couldn't walk properly for a month.. could easily have been worse

The trouble is we all get complacent when on ladders all day everyday
