3 fused lumbar disc ans nuero stim

Mar 29, 2016 3:51 PM

3 years later and it looks like i will be heading for pain killers. 3 fused lumber s1 to l5. Young and dumb can come back to bite you. Nuero device has been doing well at pain control but some days are to bad. I hope to try for 1 more year without majorvpain killers.

I'm sorry you're in pain. I am a fellow poster child (auntie?) for young and dumb...not funny at all how the impulses/passions of youth come back to bite us hard down the road!

Yes indeed. Even worse is the working hard pays off, as we were told. Yeah it pays the doctors very well.

Yep...working hard doesn't pay off the same. Can't get that stupid work ethic out of my head though! The guilt is almost as crippling as the pain... :)

Well I'll join you both on the young and dumb decisions medically speaking! There are many things I agreed to have done that if say no to today, if I'd just known then. Oh well, we can't reverse the clock but hopefully we are wiser with current & future decisions. Hugs & prayers for both of you! 🙂🙏💕🌼
