Hi I’m Kay. I recently found this group online while searching for a support group for chronic back pain. These discussions are what I needed. I’ve been struggling with back pain on and off for for over 10years…initially it was pain out of nowhere did the work up, PT, steroid injections and lifestyle modifications including maintaining my weight. Fast forward 10years later about 23lb weight gain due to work from home during this horrible pandemic. Presented to medical doctor with severe back pain more work up, PT, steroids, pain management. Nothing worked surgeon tells me the only thing that can take away this constant debilitating pain is surgery—-laminectomy with fusion. This has been the most difficult time of my life. I’m only 43 and will be going thru my first major surgery next week.


This looks promising.
