I am in pain with every step I take. In pain sitting standing ( use walker) lying down. Could cry all the time depressed have no life anymore. My son is a chiropractor and says my back is a complete mess .I was suppose to have a big surgery in Sutter Hospt Sac putting rod Etc forget what the surgery was called. I backed out 3 wks before because of course no promise I would be better. Recoup time 1 yr and just didn't think it would be something I could deal with.
