I am getting my trial put in on Monday August 26th. I am a pharmacy technician who works in an IV room. I make IV bags for hospitals, which basically mean I stand and walk in a small room for around 7 hours a day operating a pump and injecting small doses of drugs into large bags of drugs. I have a herniated L3-L4 and a non existent L4-L5 disc. I work in this room pushing through what is usually around a 6-8 pain level.
I know that it is not going to be a quick recovery from the permanent implant, but do any of you with physical jobs have some insight over what time frame I am looking at?
