In 2004, I had an accident at work in which I ruptured a disc in my neck and fractured both of my knees. To "correct" the damage done, I had surgery on my neck,knees and wrists. I wish I could say all my pain was gone after the surgeries, but that was not the case . My knees were still in pain and my neck stiff and aching. I was put on permanent restrictions and was taking pain pills and anti-depressants just to get through the day.
