Chronic back pain
Hi my name is Richard and I am 24 and I ruptured my L4-L5 L5-S1 disc at work and had a microdiscectomy. After the operation i regain use of my right leg but now i have Disc Degeneration at both levels, Lumbar Spondylosis, Synovial Cyst, Facet Arthropathy, and Annular Tear at both levels. I'm in so much pain it shoots from my hip threw my butt and down my right led my caves feel so weak that it is hard to continue living this way and as i'm told it will only get worse over time. I don't know what the future has in store for me but if it is much worse than this i don't know what to do. Winter is just around the corner and i'm dreading it the cold it chills me to the bone and cause everything from the wast down to ache so much. After I settle with workers comp i will no longer receive medical care(in Arkansas I don't have a choice to keep it) and im scared about that along with me returning to work i'm scared that I won't be able to find work willing to abide to my restrictions. I just dont know what to do and I scared to death i need so much help and support.
