I have had back problems for over 31 years but it did not manifest itself until the mid 1990s when I had 3 surgeries to remove L4/L5 in a 2 year period.
I have been pretty much ok with my back for the past 11 years but 2 month ago,I did something which changed my life. My doctor saw the way I was walking even with the help of a cane and put me in a wheelchair a month ago. I am still having a hard time dealing with that. Sometimes I still feel like I am a burden to my family.
