My name is, Jess, I am 36 yrs. old and have 2 boys I take care of on my own. I went in for lower back surgery on Dec. 11th and I have not gotten any relief, just new horrible pain. I thought my pain was intolerable before surgery, but now it's worse. I still can't return to work, I get no paycheck and there is a darn good chance I will be losing my job. I can not load and unload trucks anymore, or heavy lifting anymore. I was very active before all this, now I'm useless. I hope some of my questions will be answered here. Thank you all ahead of time, for any information you may give me.
