Hi, I'm Painloopy - loopy from all the chronic back, butt, and leg pain I've suffered with since 2003. I have DDD which resulted in 2 lumbar discectomies in 2003. In 2006 I had an artificial disc replacement done on L5-S1which worked well for 6 months then went back to pain as it was before. Multitudes of steroid injections later, I had a spinal stimulator implant put in 2007. Now I'm on permanent disability. Still in pain and always looking for new procedure s or meds that might work better than all I've tried. I'm a big advocate for aqua physical therapy. Back pain community on Webmd is great. Lot's of good advice shared. I also have COPD, RA, and subsequently depression.
