I have already had two failed lower back surgeries, the last one was a back fusion.


I have three herniated disks in my neck, pain is getting unbeareable, I'm also having problems with my tendons and ligaments in my left ankle, so I am always at different doctors Offices.


I also suffer from OCD and Depression and unfortunately I have to go through therapy for the rest of my life, well at least until I get over been sexually abused by my Step Grandfather.


I don't thin is the right move to get a surgery no, but my pain management Doctor says that I have to think about it and have the surgery for the Stimulator on, or I'll risk a life of pills and more pills.


Please help me.
