I was a firefighter/paramedic and got hurt in a fire. I hag two back surgerys

and just had a third back surgery that was a full lumbar fusion T11-S1with all plastic discs and cages and bars, it was a 9 hr surgery. I still have a great deal of pain and no feeling in left leg from knee down. I can't believe how this has changed my life and my families life. Im 52 and at my witts end with everything. Also still fighting with work comp, after 30 yrs as a firefighter I guess im still just a number to the city.Hopefully things will someday will get better. Good luck to everyone else with back pains I feel your pain. Thanks for listening
