    Physical Therapy, Cortisone Injection, Weight loss, Discectomy Surgery, Laminectomy (Decompression) Surgery, Epidural

I've had physical therapy, 7 shots of various media in my back. 2 surgeries. Nothing helping. Can't sit. Difficult to work on heavy pain meds on pain management. I hate taking pain meds but I can't function without them. Hate my life.
