Not back to work



  • I'm sorry to hear about what the surgeon told you and I know it came as a huge shock. I remember when you first came on board and you were prepping to have surgery. I was really hoping that you would do well. Even if you do go on SSDI, you mustn't give up. There are other treatments out there to consider like SCS. I'm at the point where the doctors want to follow through with this procedure. It's been 9 months since I had my 2 level TLIF and all I have going on for myself is chronic back pain and permanent nerve damage. I hope in your case if you do file for SSDI that you get approved in a few months. Take care
