I've always had back issues, as far back as a teenager. At 28 I was hospitalized and put in traction for 7 days. At 42 had my first surgery. At 48 had my second immediately followed by a 3rd as the 2nd was unsuccessful. I've been in chronic pain taking various meds and trying EVERYTHING to ease the pain my adult life. Help
