I did not injure my back. I have several back problems. Some are hereditary. I have had injections & epidurals, which help for a short period of time. I had a T10-11 fusion, no help. I have taken opioids with only partial relief! I don't think I will ever have another back surgery!! I believe I will have to live with back pain the rest of my life!!
