Hi, My name is Debra.
I broke my back in a car accident. I went through 5 months of physical therapy.. The Back Fusion was very painful. My nerves in my legs were crushed for 10 months until I had Back fusion. It was the worst pain I have ever endured.. My lower back is totally rebuilt... My Dr gave me 50% chance of not walking...I can walk and Im doing better.. I have a good days and days that are tough.. I was a Hair Stylist. Im disabled now because the car accident on Dec 26, 2008 in Fitchburg, Mass. I've been through two back surgeries.. Now I'm dealing with compressed discs in my neck.. I need to have my compress discs de-compressed. My Dr. told me this would happen 5 yrs after my back fusion... It's extremely painful.
