I had back surgery on Nov. 12 and have been out of work since then. I had one disc replaced, two fused and a plate but in my back. This was supposed to have helped but did not. My back doctor has now referred me to a pain specialist. My MRI showed that I had inflammation behind the disc that was replced. Wanting to do another facet block I have already had two. My short term disability is about to run out and I do not know how I am supposed to go back to work. I am an Assistant Manager at a fast food restaurant working anywhere from 50 to 60 hours a week. As I am right now I cannot do sit stand or lay down for a any long period of time. I am at lost at what to do I am in pain 24/7 from my back and my legs. My legs feels like somone has been beating them from the inside out, they feel like they are very badly bruised. I don't know what to do. Do I try to go back to work? If I don't I will lose my insurance and I am a single mother with two kids. I feel like it is a no win situation. Can anyone give me any advice?
