Hello...I am a 56 yr old woman who has had 3 back surgeries and researching a 4th...my last was nearly 14 years ago..(a fusion)...The pain has become so debilitating that I am no longer able to work and am eagerly awaiting a decision on my Social Security disability claim. I have already had the hearing..(4 weeks ago tomorrow) and was wondering if there are others out there who can shed any light on how much longer I may realistically have to wait for an answer. I pray it is not too much longer as my resources are rapidly dwindling. Thanks in advance for any or all of your replies with viable solid personal information with which I may rely upon for a answer that I can consider to be relatively accurate. Thanks!
