Hi there Spine Health.
I've had crippling pain since about February. I have worked about a month and a half this year. I was self-employed but the pain I'm enduring has kept me from concentrating on anything for more than a couple of minutes. As such, I cannot do much of anything. I was making 7 figures before so I am okay not working right now and would love to go back to doing that again but it doesn't look like that's in my future -- I am 7 weeks post op right now and in more pain than ever. My worry is that I never heal to the point where I can work successfully again.
What happens in these scenarios? Frankly, this is scaring me more than the constant pain. I want to be able to work and make a living and my medical bills are piling up. I obviously have money saved but I'm young and was in good health (27 with BMI around 20) when my issues started up randomly. How do you get by?
