I was looking for a forum for information, possible help and/or support, and here looks to best and active site around .
my name is johnjohn and on the 26th march I will have the spinal stimulator implanted as a final possible solution to my pain
After almost 9years and 3 surgeries to try and "fix" my lower back (L4/L5 and L5/S1)I have also has the usual the spinal injections, physiotherapy with very little no no effect.
I worry that this surgery may not work and it will leave me with no options, and my life is increasingly complicated by my mental health (borderline personality disorder and aspergers) and i feel that i am in a catch 22. My pain makes my mental health worse and my mental health makes my pain worse.
At times I feel totally lost and desperate and feel a complete burden on my wife and daughter.
