Hi I'm 28 and literally at rock bottom.
Iv suffered low back pain for 2 years now made worse by carrying my now 1 year old son.
I was admitted into hospital aug 14 for two weeks unable to walk. No MRI was done even though I told the doctors myself I had the symptoms of a herniated disk. Finally an MRI was done in October! This shown severe herniation and a neurosergeon apoinment wa booked for 28th dec.
15dec I was back in hospital in agony an 16tg dec I was operated on, I had a discectomy and honestly, I could have kissed the surgeon after, all pain gone!
2 weeks after surgery the wound got infected and I was treated with antibiotics for 4 weeks, gradually the pain has returned in my lower back and legs to exactly how it was before. I have a one year old son I feel I can't care for properly, I cannot look after myself and feel a burdon on the few people who do care.
After 2 weeks of horrendous pain and crying most of the day, I went to a and e this mening to be told there's nothing they can do.
I'm at rock bottom. My pain is so intense I cannot walk, bend or twist. I cry all the time, and genuinely feel if my son wasn't here I would so something.
I can't cope with this pain anymore but jo one is helping me.
