My name is Janice and I'm 33. I started having back problem back in 2006 when I was serving in the Army. In 2007 I was medically discharged and then underwent a Plif (L5-S1) in Sept. 2008. Everything seemed to be mending wonderful until I hit the 15 month mark and all jello broke lose. I had been trying to deal with the pain but it has gotten to the point that I knew something was wrong. My General Practice doctor sent me in for x-rays last Thursday. I was right I've got problems again, she was able to tell me that one of my screws is lose and I have 4mm slip cents my last x-ray back in January of 09. Now what all this means I'm not to sure most likely a nother surgery. She has placed a order for a MRI and I will go in for that on the 28Th of this month and a console with neurosurgery and the date for that has yet to be set.But I'm a mess with this news because I feel like I'm starting all over again with back problems. Thats were the support and understanding comes from. I went through everything last time pertty much on my own. My hubby is a wonderful support and always there for me but I learned I need more then that and thats why I'm here.
So thanks to everyone who read through this whole thing because I babble sometimes..lol And I look forward to posting and getting to know others there.
