I,m almost at the point that I'm not sure if I can continue. In 2004 I was wounded during and IED attack in Iraq. I took shrapnel to my lower back and was discharged from the Army. The official term given was i had back mussel impairment as well as degenerate disc disease. I have never recovered month by month the pain gets worse over the past year I've started wetting the bed as well. I take 4 oxycodoines a day I've had IDet surgery as well as more steroids shots then I can count. The mornings are the worst I'm always ill any more. First I'm not asking any one to feel sorry for me I just need advice. Surgeons have looked at me many times and its always the same they won't touch me there's no worse feeling then having you wife or kids change the bed clothes or help you get ready the littlest chores seems to be the hardest to do any more. I'm 40 years old and just losing heart.
