well i underwent my second back surgery in or should i say the end of January L-2 L_3 L-4 L-5 S 1... since then i am told and shown one of the cages on the left is shifting out 5mm but stable my left side is burning pain, hip/groin area has so much pain i can hardly sleep. i awakr sometimes 2 am hunched over . then i take my meds drink my herbal tea, and off to the gym to walk in the pool no swimming and i then sit in the hot-tub!! i have been denied a radiofrequency joint injections doc has to put me to sleep because of all the metal in my back 10 screws!! i have great insurance but it will not cover i see a shrink once a week and she really helps still cannot drive far.. I cannot do pt yet cannot stretch.. but i try and walk i no i never will be 100 percent , it really depress me because i never asked to get hurt i cannot sit/ or stand to long AGAIN I AM VERY POSITIVE I JUST DO NOT KNOW WHAT THE FUTURE HOLD FOR ME!! I hope i do not need a 3rd surgery but if soo i will not!! recovery is terrible, I need to keep fighting to get this injection what else can i do .. i have numbness in lots of area i really believe this injection will help me , i had one simali a while back this one is different , i do not know why they wont approve , now that the weather is cooler my knees r killing me my back hurts everything it grt so depressing for me.. i would appreciate any feed back you have to offer..
