I had back surgery 9 yrs ago before surgery I tried EVERYTHING else first got surgery thinking it would help felt great for about 8-9 months. Constant pain some moments worse I am now on disability and haven't found a new doctor that has some new ideas and would medicate me until I find a better treatment. They could care less that you hurt so bad u can't move
