Hey everyone. I'm new to the forum, but I'm Kate. Im 24, and have been experiencing back pain for a year and a half now. Currently on the road to get surgery (hopefully) to help with one of my many issues. This all started due to a car accident (thank the careless drivers), and as a result I have t5-t8 herniated, l4 bulged, and l5s1 herniated with a grade 3 tear. I'm currently awaiting a decision on if surgery will get approved - if so.. I'll then have to decide which option I go with. Anyway, I'm at my wits ends! Hope I can make some friends who understand the struggle.
