About Me: Female, 51, Hubbard, OH, member since May 2013
I am a 48 yr old mother/grandmother just trying to make life work post op/spinal fusion. I never saw the surgery coming,I thought it would be like all my other back aches,it would just go away on it's own and I would be fine. After a year and a half of drs,tests,pain
[More] management(which I think is such crap,I want one dr who handles everything,it's hard to feel comfortable when you have someone looking at you like your just there for the "stuff"and who you know doubts every word you say like your some kind of .oh whatever,you know) So I never saw myself ending up with an 18 inch incision and pain when it rains,legs that feel like they want to get up and go on their own,and frustration beyond belief. Yes,this is how I feel about my journey when I am all alone. I hope to find someone I can talk to here who has some kind of understanding of what I am going thru,and doesn't mind my rants. lol Well,not really a little about me,more like a rambling. Sorry.
