Harrington Rod surgery 1986/post op issues
I too have been experiencing crippling back pain at times. I have lower back pain, difficulty straightening up, during these episodes I am hunched over. I am now experiencing numbness down my left leg and foot-sciatica? Anyway, I have read about other folks filing for SS disability. Wondered how that was going? I have considered it, however, I am always working, even when I am pain. I rarely take off from work to see my doctor. That being said, I haven't applied myself because I feel like I don't have the medical visits to document my pain thus, proving my disability. Any advice? I have been told that I some places, I am disc on disc and I have osteoarthritis-I could have a full fusion of my last few vertebrae.
