My husband has DDD and I am desperate to find help for him!!

I am at my wits end. My husband has had two back surgeries, the last one replaced a couple discs, fusion and decompression. At first he did okay but after a while the pain in his back traveled down to the sacroiliac region and now he has major numbness and weakness in both legs. He is confined to a bed because he cannot sit or stand more than 20 minutes. When he does get up it's scary, he often falls. I have gotten a chair for him, one specialized for him, and hopefully that will help, but right now he is in bad shape. I can't go back to work and I stay with him 24/7. Unless, I can get back to work, I don't know what we're going to do. This has become more difficult because we have a seven year old daughter. She is the apple of her dad's eye and he is so upset that he can't do more with her. I need some sort of guidance and support. Is there anyone out there who might be able to help?
