Im on my second L5 S1 back surgery. This second surgery they opened me up and said that they were kallsafied so bad that there not sure how long it's been that way. Iv done acupuncture physical therapy and swimming and a few more things. Iv been on painkillers and a few different nerve meds and other meds to. Now restarting physical therapy agin. I guess im asking if any one has gone through this what can i do now to help myself more. Im 33 and i don't want to live in pain for the reast of my life. But my surgent said it might not change ever.
