i had a 4 level ADR replacement withdorsal DSS implants (8 pedicle screws plus 'dynamic' connectors). Sugery done 2/10/15. Almost 1 year out. Pain was really bad at first...then decreased 4-6 mos out. I returned oart time to work then pain worsened i think i got too busy too quick. Im now not doing well and have regressed back to about what i felt 3 or 4 mos post op. Im still on pain killers per my dr, it could be a few more months or up to another year. It testing my patience and my spouse i feel is on the edge of leaving me if i cant return to work soon. Shes grown tired of this life as have i of course. We are very depressed and dont feel we can go on much lomger...its not worth it. Can anyone give some advice and or perspective??**********************************************

Spine-Health Forum Rule:
5.11 You agree not to make duplicate threads.
was put in place to avoid confusion on the boards.
Many people think if they duplicate their thread on several different forum categories, their message will get to more members and responses will follow.
Unfortunately, this does not happen.
Member A creates Thread "A" on Forum category: Lower Back Pain
Then creates Thread "A" on Forum category :New Member Introductions
Then creates Thread "A" on forum category: Conditions Not covered.So now, we have 3 Thread "A" all which are 100% duplicates.
Member B sees Thread "A" in Lower back pain and responds.
Member C sees Thread "A" in Conditions not covered
No one reads Thread "A" in New Member conditionsWe now have different posts in the different forum categories but addressing the same subject.
We lose any thread/post continuity. The though process is lost and other members may never read the other Thread "A"
That is the real reason this rule is in place!
