L5-S1 fusion

Fort Wayne, IN

#1 Aug 29, 2012
My back radiates pain and heat. My back is warm to the touch 15 minutes after icing. I live with a ice pack over the sight of my fusion. The procedure was over 8 years ago. I suffered with MRSA staph infection. I beleve something that was put in me is causing the pain but I cannot find a doctor to touch me after I suffered with MRSA staph infection. The MRSA attached itself to the metal and I had to be cut open and sewn shut 3 times.I believe the metal is dirty and my body is rejecting it. Can anyone relate.
