When I was nineteen had a break in l-1 and 2 in a car wreck. As I got older degenerative disc disease. Had surgery June the 5th in 2015. It's been a terrible time. I got a titanium rod and as. Much as they could repair. I have come a long way with the pain level but I have pain somewhere all the time. Now my knees and hips are suffering because the surgery put more pressure on those. Top of. My hips feel like raw meat. I've had countless steroid shots and they do help but can't have anymore for 5 months. Also got a blood clot after surgery and am still on blood thinners. Not sure how it will be in the end but without God I wouldn't have got as far as I am. God heals in his own time .
