I am a widowed mother of 4 grown children. I live with failed back surgery syndrome, reherniated L5-S1, new herniated L4-L5, arachnoiditis, spondilitis, severe osteoporosis, sciatica and nerve damage at my L5-S1 leve. My left hip also pops out of the socket occasionally when I walk too much...the drs called it S1 hip dysplasia. I have an implanted spinal cord stimulator but it's not enough to give me measurable relief these days. So that's me in a nutshell!
