denied social security disability AGAIN

Boy I've had a bad week. I applied for SSD about a year after my second fusion. I just didn't recover at all. I came out of my surgery with pain in my right hip ( my brace was not right) and sacrialliac joint pain. I also had chronic lower back pain. Although my employer was patient I was never able to return to work. I can no longer sit or stand for any period of time without severe pain. Any little thing triggers a flare up. There is no rhyme or reason. I'm sure many of you can relate. My doctor finally recommended I apply for SSD. I went through the super fun process and received denial after denial. After my hearing resulted in a denial my lawyer suggested applying again. I did. Denied again. The funny thing is that my employer had disability insurance and they just reviewed my case and determined that I'm too disabled to do any job. I'm tired. Anyone have advice? Or have an experience that they can share with me?
