I have had major multiple injuries in the last 10 years. Shattered shoulder blade, fractures of: L4-L5 processes, sternum, both wrists (distal radius) several fingers, ankle, foot avulsion, major knee injury both sides (ACL and medial crucial ligament) The list actually goes on and on. What I'm asking is HOW am I going to make it 30 years from now when I'm in my 60's if I hurt this bad now?
It makes me angry when I'm in pain. I've also gained a bunch of weight because I couldn't move for a long time with some of the injuries.
Been diagnosed with spondilosis (sp?) of cervical and lumbar spine, arthritis in the fingers I broke, degenerative disc disease (every single disc in my cervical and lumbar spine are bulging)
Please somebody tell me what to do. Right now all I've done is TRY to exercise and take pain medication. Unfortunately, 10 mg of hydrocodone just doesn't help anymore.
I've done at least 100 trips to the Physical Therapist and work on a home program as well.
I am so sad- somebody please help me.
