Hi everyone! I'm Linda, I just joined today. I have had chronic pain since I was about 10 years old. When I was 42 I finally had lower back surgery because my pain was going down my right leg and I could hardly walk and still had small children at home. A few years later I had surgery on my cervical spine. I still suffer from chronic pain. And I don't take narcotic pain medication anymore. I stopped after 10 years. I am still in chronic pain, just have to deal with it differently now.

I hope you all are doing well!

Hi welcome

Hi Linda sorry to hear you are in chronic pain. Have your surgeries helped at all i am also concerned about how you manage your pain. All the best.

Neither surgery fixed my pain. Except for removing the pain in my leg. I don't manage my pain, I try to avoid doing things that cause my back to hurt. When I am in pain, I grin and bear it.
