Hi my name Megan. 30yo mom of 3 beautiful kids, 9yo DSD, 7yo DD and 2yo DS. Living also with my best friend of 30 years(my dh) and our dog.
Now to the less fun stuff..
Been having lbp and leg pain 9+ years. Not till Nov 2011 did a Dr decide to do MRI and not just throw meds at it. At that time only torn and bulging L4\5. Had 3 lesi then lost insurance.
9months later started conservative treatments again. All have failed. Had discogram and ct last week. Got unsettling results today. (For details look in low back pain forum under title "feeling" hopeless"
seeing neurosurgeon next Tuesday as a 2nd opinion after ortho was VERY dismissive and told me I will just have to deal with being disabled.
I look forward to helping those I can, and for having people to share/talk with that understand what this pain is like and Dont think you're just whining.
