I had a back surgery in 1997 on my l4 disk, major nerve damage on my left side and my SI joint is distroyd. I just had my whole spine evaluated and now I have degenerative disk disease envolving all my lover disk and also had two disk fusion on my neck last month. the disk in my neck were completly colasped and were bone on bone with both herniated to the spinal cord.I have lived and worked with the pain in my back and hips and legs sence 1997. Thousands and thousands of hours on a heating pad and hot baths just to make another day. Now with my neck and all this extra pain I just caint do it any more, its just to much. up untill the neck surgery I didnt take pain meds, just aleve to take the edge off. Now nothing works. they tell me that there is so much intence damage in the first 6 disk in my lower back they can not be fixed. now I feel so lost. I am only 50 years old, but I feel 100.
thanks for listening
