Hello everyone I just found this site and thought it would help to chat with people that understand what your going through. two years ago i had back surgery in my lower back L5-S1 and L4-S1 they took both of them discs.Well 2 years later i went and got a second opinion because the doctor that was giving me my shots said "go get a second opinion" so i did and the second opinion was no different except i have degenerative disc disease so the doc that gave me my shots wanted to put in the spinal stimulator at the time medicaid didnt pay for it it was 30,000.00. Now that im off medicaid guess what they pay for it. But other than that there is no more surgeries to help me and he said i would be in a wheelchair by the time i was 50 so im trying to keep my chin up. So now im stuck like this cant get any kind of help what so ever my regular md she tries to keep me out of pain but that is impossible right now she has me on vicodin and darvocet for pain and celebrex for that degenerative disc disease and now im on high blood pressure meds and depression and axiety meds. I'm trying to find a way to get that spinal stimulator until then im stuck with the pain they tell me to lose weight also but thats funny i cant hardly walk how do you exercise if you cant walk. Ok im sorry get on here and start babbling i hope to chat with all of youu thanks suzie
