Re: To have surgery or not

I totally understand. Before my injury I was a marathon runner and now I struggle to walk. My injury is a disabling injury but I chose to be encouraged as my doc said that 90 percent of folks who do what I did fracture their spine. She always told me that I could have been a paraplegic or dead so I continue on. She said that when my pain level gets to a three they will call it a success. I am not what I was but neither am I what I could have been. Chronic pain really wears on the nerves. I hope you have success.
