I've had surgery at L5/S-1; no fusion. Reherniation at same location surgery not recommended a second time, DDD, dessication, at multi levels of lumbar spine, foot drop second time around, fall & trip often, wear orthotic, fall last year resulted in c6-7 herniation, cervical damange at 5 levels surgery not an otpion, I have permanent nerve damage, neuropathy, neurogenic bladder, now cath several times a day. I'm in pain every day due to my spine alone. I have other disablities. I'm sure there are lots of other "spineys" out there. I take my meds, see my doctors regularly, rest, and remember my physical limitations. I'm 43. My problems began at 18 in military service. Let's focus on the little things we can still do.
