  • I had the surgery June 3rd 2015,i had the pain stimulater put in jy of 2016, which helped for a bit but know it seems to make pain worse I feel, so I end up leaving it off most of time, I am in a pain management, I take 5 to 6 perks for pain and nerve pills never really helped me, I think there going to try me on a different one this month, on October 18 I was diagnosed with failed back surgery, since my bone growth is Not there, and I have one of the nuts almost off in my back, also diagnosed with arachnoiditis, which means I guess can't be fixed still trying to find a Dr for that 

  • Does any one know that of I keep pushing myself all the time , if it is a bad thing , or as long as I cam handle pain ot OK
