Hello everyone... my name is Rob, and I have been using Spinehealth over the past few months,But hav'nt introduced myself until now. I worked in the transportation industry til August 18 2008. I drove and operated tractor trailers. On the evening of the eighteenth,I fell backwards off of the truck and broke my right hip and damaged the lower spine. I have had two hip surgeries. The first surgery,my hip was plated and pinned. After five months, a c.a.t scan reveiled a non union of the hip joint. The second surgery was a total ceramic hip replacement,Febuary 23 2009. My spine was compressed resulting in bulging discs,annular tears and disc material pressing against the L5S1 nerve roots. I have been diagnosed as a chronic pain patient, and have been living with that condition and all that it entails for two years. I am grateful for this website and have learned so much from it. I hope to learn more and be an encouragement to others who suffer as I do..... Takecare everyone !!!
