  • Gosh I know what you are going through as I had a work injury in 2001 and still not working. I had surgery also in May and am waiting for fusion to be complete.
    I hope you get to have an MRI soon as it should help with disgnosis for your pain.
    In the meantime hang in there and try to stay positive- it is the best thing we can do for ourselves.
