It affects every single aspect of my life, I can�t do any physical activity because of the pain, when I go shopping I need a shopping cart so I can walk around the store, I sit in my recliner most of the time, try to go in my bed only at night and I only sleep a couple of hours because the back and neck and hip pain wakes me up then I end up in my recliner for a few hours till the pain wakes me up again so I only get 2-3 hours of sleep all night, then I�ll take a few naps during the day because I�m so tired from getting no sleep during the night, this has been going on since my first surgery which was 12 years ago
