Hi, I'm Sean. I am a 36 yearold Male in need of support, I have had 7-8 years of chronic but liveable back pain. Over the last 3 I have suffered with numbness, shooting pain, burning, etc....below the waist. My wife and I have 4 children between the years of 14-6. For this reason I can't afford to take any narcotic pain relievers. I was prescribed Neurontin 600/3x and Indomethacin 3x for the last 2 years, to minimal relief.
I have Degenerative disc disease, Osteoarthritis, and a few other things going on, The pain had become unliveable, So after years of trying to bury the pain I chose surgery. I'm trying to find the hope that I will be better.
Please if you have any experience, strength, and hope to offer I would be grately appreciative.
Status now.... surviving
thank you, Sean
