Iam not sure if joinning this forum will help but Iam feeling so alone in my struggle today. Ive been in pain with my lumbar spine since 2001 my first laminectomy. In 2004 they went back in saying I generated so much scar tissue at L4-5 it could be called "failed" . In 2005 a driver rolled my SUV while running a red light and I found myself in surgery number 3 this time with a fusion at 4/5 and an ADR at L3-4.
In the beginning friend , family and even my employer supported me on my road to recovery. but today it seems they are all so tired of hearing how painful this is when Iam have difficult time. I feel so alone in this battle. While the doctors have tons of medicines to get a person relying on to get through a functional day they have NOTHING to help the spirit deal with this for a lifetime.
Anyone feel like me?
