Question:

Ihave had a lamendectomy, back in the 70`s. I resently had a second lamindectomy with instramentation and fusion in the late 90`s. Now I`m having back problems again and the weather is playing a big part, especially when it`s damp and hummid. I`m 66 years old and can hardly walk at times. What can I do???

Answer:

Hello, thank you for your question. You can schedule a follow-up visit with your surgeon, if he/she is still around, or start like everyone else does, by seeing your primary care provider and getting started on some treatment. Good luck.
