Hello. My name is Walter. I have been dealing w' degenerative disc's S1-L5 and L5-L4 since 2005. Microdiscectomey surgery 2 years ago helped herniation, but back and pelvic pain still persist. Will not take pain med's (too addictive) have no real oppertunities for surgery because I am referred too as 'not a good candidate' for surgery. So what am I suppose to do? And now disability says I am not disabled... wtf! Life goes on I geuss. While I watch it go by.
