Hi people's, in 2003 I had a 3 level spinal fusion.....3-4, 4-5, 5S1, 12 months later I had the hardware removed and then a few years later I had bone growth removed, I now have Chronic back pain now right lower back/ hip driving me stupid and I can't do any house chores or even kick the football with my son, I take Tramadol morning and night which doesn't help much at all...I am very moody and and very short tempered as you can imagine.
I work full time but I don't know how I cope, only this week I had that much pain in my lower back I could hardly walk let alone sit but know one except my family knew how bad I was...got to pay the mortgage, I have days when I am very depressed and feel like giving up, except for my wife and 2 kids who knows.....anyway just saying hi and introducing myself, thanks.
