This has been a long road for me.. I started this with Kaiser '07 but after loosing 20 lbs I got pregnant! and then lets say due to a workers comp injury they canceled my insurance and I was left in the obliss... lol but with the WC system I was approved for the surgery but the insurance thought it was not an emergency they would place it on the back burner.

So several years later suffering with a back injury and lets say this is not helping with all the walking my doctor has recommended but I do try.. I had my surgery on January 7th 2013! I'm excited not for the surgery itself but for my back pain! I wouldn't wish this pain on my worst enemy.

I'm loosing weight slowly but even thou I started this my back pain is still the same! Nothing has changed but regardless if I do loose the weight I get to qualify for my back surgery and from there I can say I would get my life back!
