Hello, My name is Cheryl. I am 50 and was first thrown into chronic back pain in an auto accident in 1996. I was T boned, tossed across 1 lane and up onto the sidewalk.
If I posted everything medical since then we 'd be here forever, so here's the "reader's digest " of what I can remember.
Physical Therapy 3+ times

Chronic Pain Dr. 12 yrs patient
MRIs CT scans
Steriod inj for a decade, Nerve Burns 3 yrs.
Disectomy L4/ L5, decompression laminectomy, fusion 9/10 failed, however no longer needed cane until now
SIJD fusion reccomended
Drugs, too many to list 10+ strongest being fentanyl patches 75 mg.
Currently spending most of the day in bed.
