Hello, I just downloaded this app today and I’m not totally sure how it works. I had spondololysthesis and a herniated disc which caused me to have a lumbar fusion surgery in sept of 2020. I thought I was making progress until a recent MRI showed the surgery failed and caused several other issues. I am in a 10/10 pain every day.. I’m lost. I used to be a personal trainer and fitness instructor so my identity is gone. Doctors turn me away as I am a liability… there’s not much hope for me

    Life after a fusion is very difficult. I did it 10 years ago. It completely changed my life and it definitely didn’t help anything. I know for me I felt so angry and like I was losing myself more and more everyday. The best advice I can give you is to get a doctor who is willing to work with you. It took me 4 doctors until I found one that really helped. I know it’s difficult. What I did was made a ton of appointments at different doctors and moved forward from there! Let me know if you need anything or have any questions! Sending you all the pain free and healing vibes!
