I had back surgery last August for a large herniated disc in the l5 s1 region. Since then I have been struggling with back pain that has been limiting me to what I can do. I don't have any energy can't do things I used to be able to and can't stand or walk for long periods of time. How long till I am back to normal. All the pain doctor wants to do is give me injections and medication. Also Saud I have fibromyalgia.
