Hi there.
Im Henrik from Copenhagen Denmark. I have read your story and wish you luck. But i also wanted to tell you that i too have had back problems. I have had 2 sergurys. And suffer from nerve damage.
I know it looks like you are in a hole and never get out, but im here to tell you to never give up. Keep fighting and you will get to the other side. I am in pain every day, but i am back to work doing bodywork on cars. I need morfin to keep me upright, but i dont care. My body is not to keep me from doing what i like. You learned to live with the pain, and learned to do things differently. I Might look odd when i work but i get the job done.
I hope things work out for you. Regards Henrik.
PS If they offer you oxycontin or similar pills, take it from me stay away from them. They will get you hoked and the withdravl when you need rehap is worse than any pain. They told me that i would not get adicted to them, bullshit it took me a long time to get out of them. I use a different kind now.

I'd help with the car, Jeff, but I'm afraid you'd have to buy a new one after I did any work on it ... LOL.

Thoughts/prayers continuing, of course.....

Those a$$holes. They can't afford to help you with the medical bills, but they sure as hell can afford to hire a PI to tail you around. God, I hate health insurance companies.

Sometimes life just sucks, but If it can help you i can tell you that you are not alone. The last 12 years have been a roller coaster ride of ups and downs. My son died at birth. My back gave up and i had severel operations that only made things worse. My mother Got cancer like yours. My wife Lots her job and i Lost my business. My best friend killed himself, and i Lost another close friend to accident. And i could keep on going. My point is you need to keep fighting. Things will get better. You did not do anything to get whats coming. Its just life, someday you be on the other side. Im sure others will say the same.
