I've had 9 spine surgeries and now I've had a fusion crack or back out again after 3 years of mostly a successful last surgery. I'm having to wait for a month and a half to see the WC doctor. Will the crack not cause more nerve damage than I already have? I know it has cracked or backed out because it happened 2 wks after a surgery and it felt the same when it popped. It just hasn't caused my leg to throb this time but severe pain getting up from laying or sitting. It's just one misery after another for me and I'm bout to run out of will power to keep fighting pain and misery. I really thought I was finished with surgeries but now its time for another. I was hoping I would be able to live with it and maybe the bad pain would ease after a while but its not going to. This ordeal has cost me my wife of 18 yrs and destroyed my family after being told I could continue being a paramedic after the first surgery doctor. I told him then that there was no way I could do that job but he didn't believe me. I even stopped that and took it easy on my back and it took only 3 years to rerupture and rupt the disc above. I hurt my back by lifting a 300+ lb wreck victim that broke his back being ejected from vehicle how ironic it ended my life by hurting my back. After 23 years of misery dealing with all this it just keeps happening. I enjoyed playing with my grandkids and now its all over again. I'm just tired of all this.
