: Can anyone help assist me with information on wheather or not Social Security will pay disability benefits for people who have Spondylolisthesis? Any information to help me on this will be greatly appreciated, and thank you to everyone who takes the time to read this and e mail me with information Thanks alot :)

I HAVE BEEN FIGHTING WITH SSD FOR 3 YRS NOW
IT'S AN UP HILL FIGHT
FIRST YOU APPLY AND THEY TURN YOU DOWN
THEN YOU GET A HEARING AND IF YOU HAVE AN UNFAIR
JUDGE LIKE I DID WHO WROTE AN UNFAVORABLE DECISION
THEY TURN YOU DOWN AGAIN
SO YOU APPEAL, MY HEARING WAS OCT 99 AND SSD
IS ONLY UP TO APPEALS FOR 1998
YOU HAVE TO HAVE LAWYERS, BUT THE LAW HAS CAPPED
WHAT THEY CAN CHARGE
BE PREPARED FOR THE FIGHT OF YOUR LIFE BUT DON'T
GIVE UP
I HAVE SPONDY, DEGEN SPINE DISEASE, STENOSIS
AND HAD SURGERY AT L4-5/S-1
THE SURGERY WAS A MISTAKE THEY USED A BAK
INTERBODY FUSION CAGE, THE CAGE HAS SLIPPED
AND CANNOT BE REMOVED, THEY CUT MY DURA DURING
THE PROCEDURE
THE LAMINECTOMY WENT FINE
THANK GOD
STILL TAKE LOTS OF PAIN MEDS EACH DAY
CANNOT LIFT,BEND,ETC. REALLY DON'T WANT TOO
BUT FORCE MYSELF TO GET UP EACH DAY
CAN'T GARDEN, HAD TO PUT EVERYTHING IN POTS
SO I WOULDN'T HAVE TO DIG
THE SURGERY GAVE ME TERRIBLE BURISTIS IN RIGHT HIP
ALSO, HAVE FIBROMYALGIA AND SJOGREN'S SYNDROME
A FORM OF ARTHRISTIS
BUT ALL IN ALL JUST FINE
THEY CALL OUR CONDITION A HIDDEN DISEASE
SO IF YOU LOOK OK YOU MUST BE OK
GOOD LUCK WITH SSD
KEEP ME POSTED
SANDI IN PHILA,PA
PICTURE33@AOL.COM
P.S. ALSO HAVE NERVE DAMAGE C4-5
BUT THE COLD STONE B==== SAID I COULD LIFT 50#
AND 25# OFTEN
I WEIGH 127# AND I'M 5'2" ALSO A WIDOW 55
SO AS I SAID FIGHT ON
