Spine surgery ruined my life. My outcome is actually considered successful. This whole spine surgery crap is xxx. I have been chopped up and left for dead. Everyone made out but me. I'm stuck with pain and extremely limited rom in my left shoulder. My left arm is dwindleibg away. Just the weight of my arm pulls on my neck and scap. But according to 5 doctors im fine. Non union but fine. No limitations at all. I'm unable to do anything including g work but I don't qualify for disability. I had everything and now I have nothing. I'm 34 years old. This all started at 31. All I'm saying is if you are not dying from spine pain don't do surgery. I wish someone told me. I thought if I had issues I had safety nets. Boy was I wrong. Just my experience . wish I never even went to a doctor. I used to be a weightlifter and now I can't even jog. I could jog and do things and was strong before surgery but now I can't I have more different pain and I'm completely weak I've lost 35 lbs and its been 1 1/2 years since my surgery and 3 years since this all started and I just can't take it anymore. Society is horrible and no one should get screwed like this.
