i have had back problems since I was 17 and am now 41z my latest MRI came back way worse. L3 L4 L5 S1 herniated disks. My dr reccomends surgery since I have done everything else. My friends and family are getting tired of me talking about it I can tell! I'm getting depressed. I can't go to the gym and I'm gaining weight. I keep missing work and my boyfriend is frustrated with me . I don't know what else to do. Just came here looking for some sort of support and someone to talk to.
