Thank you for your time I know it is very valueable! I have a question to ask you if I may? I had back surgry in September of 2010 and I have still to this day have horrible pain, is there anything that I can do? I dont have the money or insurance to visit a clinic you are my last hope!
See the section on “failed spine surgery syndrome” as there are some problems that can occur after surgery or the initial diagnosis might have been incorrect. Many times, the problem can be remedied.
Without insurance, there are some university clinics and inner city hospitals that will take care of you. You need to do your homework.
