I had my back sugry about 35 years ago after testing they found tumors growing around my spinal cord, all were removed with good results. I am being tested now to have a nerve block put in. I can do some things with out pain but not much. Can't lift great grand kids or play rough with them. If they can do something to last as long as the last one that is all I need. The tumors they removed were not letting the blood flow through my spine. Thankful I had it.
