I had a car accident and now have 10 herniated discs. Actually Now 9 because I had fission on c-4/5 disc removed 3 months ago. Now I have constant pain all the time in the other disc areas. But since my C 6/7 is in a lot of pain. Scared it might blow out. I had chest pain so bad like cardiac arrest and a flare up requiring steroids. Might need another fusion, just did a 3 hour MRI and waiting on results. I am young only 42 and I used to be so active, a dancer and an interior painter. I can't do anything that was the essence of me now. I have had 5 total surgeries in 3 years. I am feeling very depressed. Anti depressants and counciling just aren't doing it. I been dealing with this all alone except For my two kids, now 11 and 13. They argue with me when I need their help. I feel so abandoned by friends and family. I have repeatedly sent out Facebook messages to friend for help and no one comes or calls. I feel like no one really gets the major surgery I just had. Has anyone out there gone through this. My depression seems worse post opt. I need to know I am not alone. It was really hard to go to the hospital all alone. Everyone seems to have a spouse or friend.
