I don't know whether to start a new discussion or what, but wanted to find out from WLlady and Robynx (and any others) what there pain level was bf surgery and after surgery. Also, if you have connected with others that have had surgery and reported back to you. I just read that surgery can help for pain that is radiating to your legs, but probably won't if it is entirely in the back area. (mine is totally in the back) . Where was the site of most of your pain? I didn't think surgery was an option until I got on this site.
I can only stand about 5 min bf pain level 8 and walking around the block gives me pain level 8. I can't work in the yard anymore at all. I'm trying PT and pilates from professionals who specialize in scoliosis, but I don't think I'm seeing any pain relief. Today I did some pilates and PT and it started hurting worse. It's so frustrating.
I feel like a "cry baby", but I also feel desperate. I'm also depressed bc my husband is so active and I feel like "debbie downer". I wish his life didn't have to be so affected bc of my pain.
