Physician gave sliver of hope. Praying.

So many of you know I had 2 back surgeries in 1 year. This time the surgery did not help. I went back yesterday and the Dr. said it was unlikely I would get better. I start aggresive physical therapy next week. I'm trying to be positive, but the prospect of living with this pain is not a pleasent thought. I'm supposed to go back to work in a month, and wonder if I can do my job, or if I am going to need a new one. If this doesnt work, I will have to get a second opinion, which is difficult, as most Dr.do not want to touch you after someone else does surgery. Thanks for letting me vent.
