Did you get back surgery? My poor cousin developed a herniated disk and had surgery done to correct it... Then surgery done to correct that surgery. Now she has the disks fused with a metal rod. I feel so sorry for the poor girl. She is only 23... I do not think she even needed surgery in the first place, but she is an opiate drug addict and chases after all kinds of surgeries in order to support her habit. When I last hugged her, it felt like hugging a skeleton. Her cheeks are sunken in, her voice trails off with weakness with each sentence, and her eyes sometimes roll back with a combination of boredom, despair, and the subtle pleasant numbness of OxyContin or Methadone or whatever the latest prescription is. She doesn't eat regularly. I fear she will be dead before she is 35. It's hard to get her to eat protein, too, because she is a Vegan with a wheat allergy.
I've had good experiences with chiropractics, and my father, who has a history of back problems, swears by it.
