Wrote in here before and found it very helpfull. I had my back operation nearly a year ago. I had a discectomy on my lower back L5 I do believe, I have gone back to work for over 5 months now and I have got a lot better mybe 75percent .
But I struggle with work I do a 4 hour shift and I cannot do anything when I get home as am in pain . I have to lay down and rest . I cannot clean my house in a whole day anymore and I find it a struggle to do a roast dinner as my oven low . I still sit down and put washing in machine .
Went doctors last week and asked her will I get much better and she's not sure I will . I am going back to physio all I want is straight answers to know do I give up work or carry on ? Yes they gave me pain killers which help a bit, to me I don't want high painkillers that mask the pain coz then I feel like am ok to do stuff and suffer
I also have a T 1 which I don't know if this is link to me neck and shoulder pain which I can't lift me arm above me head or I. Pulled muscle at work .
Am actually very depressed coz I think am gonna have change me life and the biggest thing is working . I can still not sit for hours or stand for long periods of time .
All I wanna know is will I improve I cry constantly
