I know what you mean Jenny, I had my surgery when I was 11 years old. Im 22 now am in such terrible pain. I just saw a specialist yesterday, he said everything was find but there is nerve irritation. He gave me therapy for four weeks, gave me pain pills and anti inflammatories then said good bye and shoved me out the door. I know something is wrong with my back but no one cares... its sucks and I will keep fighting.
