Received an infusion surgery on L4&L5. Repeated surgery 3 x due to paralyzing of my legs. All done in the first 36 hrs.

Couldn't walk on left leg for 1 month due to paralyzed leg. My sciatic was scraped with build up of arthritis. No one will care for me. I'm in excruciating pain everyday and I don't sleep and can't work. All the doctors recognize me as disabled except for our wonderful system. On 30 mg. of oxycodone every 4-6 hrs. And 100 mcg of fentanyl patches. Barely works. I'm 52 now and my life has been stolen. I'm a single mom of 4 children and I cry daily because of a he pain and being broke and losing everything I had because I can't work. Yet the state won't give me a dime.
