I've had 3 surguries since January, the last was a 2 level fusion on September 22,2008 I'm 39. I'm worried if I'll ever work again.


  • Welcome to the forum I just read your post and i thought i had something to complain about until i saw how many surgeries you had. I had two surgeries eight months apart but nothing like what you are suffering. I wish you good health and a speedy recovery. I also hope you are able to return to work as soon as you are well enough. Take care and God bless.

  • Try not to despair yet. You are still very early in the recovery process and hopefully will heal and get much better than you are now. Good luck and please keep us posted.
  • Don't despair it's still early in your recovery. One day at a time. Take care. Charry

  • You have to take one step at a time, and believe in your heart, you will get well one day. At times, with our body pains, it just reminds us to slow down a little, for now, you know. I used a lot of 'this time' to meditate what is true happiness. Keep a positive outlook, and do not give yourself excuses. In the meantime, come here for laughter. Alright, where is that ice cream man now? This man needs a triple scoop.
