Unable to lie down due to degenerative spinal condition
Hi my name is Kat, I'm 50, and have a degenerative spinal condition. I had a complete decompression at L5 - L3 site in Oct 17. Since then my lower spine is starting to now compress. I have been unable to lay down in my bed since the operation. I end up in extreme pain and a seized back after about 2 hours of laying down. I now have to sleep on my reclining sofa in a sitting position. I only get about 4 hours a night on this. I am still trying to work as an admin officer, but it's now taking a toll. Can you offer any suggestions to help me please? I also have bi-polar for 30 years. Medicated.
