I've been suffering with chronic lower back pain for several years now. In 1992 I had a lamenectomy at L3/4 and recovered well for about 14 years,then about four years ago I had a car acc. which worsened my back. I now have herniations at ,L3/4/5, deg. disk disease,stenosis and severe nerve compression which has cut feeling and control to most of my lower body. I'm now waiting to see when or if my Dr's will rush me in for surgery. When I do have surg. I'll have fusion at two levels and decompression of nerves.
