Been long time since been around any OG's

Good day all, It sure has been forever since I posted on Spine Health boards. Looking to see some OG's around.

I have had my second back surgery 2yrs ago and yep back in pain circle again.

I have a good pain Management doc for now. As so much is changing with laws and such I'm not sure how much long I can get meds. I still live in Chicago and so winters are brutal.

I have since ( 10 yrs ago since posted) been doing an online business. Also I moved from a very busy suburb to farmland towns. Its wonderful not fighting traffic all the time. We only get traffic when a tractors on the roads. 

Hope to hear from some older members.

Happy New Year I pray this new year keeps the government away from our much needed pain meds. Also that all of us find easier pain issues

    Nice to meet you and welcome back. I also live in a very rural area with tractors and combines for traffic jams except we live in the woods. And absolutely love it.
    Hope to hear from you again, stay warm.
