This back issue of mine has been going on long enough. I have been through chiropractor treatment, decompression therapy, and have had cortisone shots 3 times into my nerves. Pain medicine has not worked to ease much of the pain. They do help me sleep and that is somewhat helpful. When I got out of bed this morning I looked liked a cripple. I have been waiting 4 weeks to get into the surgeon and at this point I'm ready. I hope I don't have to mess around to long before I get an option that works.
This pain limits me from doing much of anything. Walking and sitting are the worse positions for me and that makes it hard to do much. We have a wedding next weekend, a family reunion and graduation in two weeks. I want to feel better, it is so hard to hide the pain and I often look a bit cripple anyway so others can tell.
I am doing my best to keep a positive outlook and I thank you all for letting me vent.
