Data Entry Job – SCAM!
We are aware that someone out there is using our CEO’s name and our company name to “recruit” people for a data entry job. It is a fake. Please do not give them any of your personal information. We are not now, nor have we ever, had data entry positions available.
Hello everyone, I hope I have posted this in the correct place.
I'm new to the forum and have spent the passed few days looking through lots of posts hoping to find some advice and further information.
In Feb 2010 I had a disectomy/laminectomy at L5/S1. All went well and although a slow recovery with permanent numbness to right leg, I thought I had put my back problems behind me. Unfortunatley in Oct of this year I had to have a hysterectomy which had been delayed due to my back op. That surgery went well until one and a half weeks post op. My back pain started again and I tried to ignore it until I couldn't really carry on with it. Really shocked when doctor said that I could be having a recurrance of the previous problem. I thought that once I had the back op, that would be the end of it. Obviously not. She has requested another MRI and I presume will see what that shows. I can't believe how awful this year has been. Was looking forward to putting 2010 behind me! The pain in my back has brought back lots of painful memories.
My question to you wise folk is, can a disectomy/laminectomy fail and would they repeat the same op or do something else. Also, I have noticed that the numbness in my leg seems to be spreading.
Thank you in advance for any help, advice or experience you could give me.
