I'm a high school student that has had severe and continuous back pain for 3 months now. Doing daily activities is difficult. The backpack for school makes it a lot worse. Not only do I have to carry school supplies around but also a bag with my diabetic supplies. The backpack gets very heavy. I've considered roller backpacks, but hallways at school are so crowded, i'd basically be carrying it and that would defy its purpose. Any suggestions? Going in for surgery to have it fixed, but pain keeps getting worse and still have awhile before surgery date. Any suggestions?
