Help -- just found out need surgery
Posted in the Back Pain Forum
#1 Dec 29, 2012
I had L4-5 fusion 2003 with great results. About nine months ago started to have pain in back, legs and thighs. I have done injections, pain medication, discography, and mylogram. Visited the surgeon yesterday....he said there are three things I could do try stimulator, more Meds put in morphine pump in or surgery. He said my back was shot and needed to do salvage surgery of lumbar spine. Surgery would require Fusion L1-2 and L2-3, take hardware off at previous fusion L4-5, disc removal/replacement L3-4 and L5-S1 with rods and screws at L1-S1. Not sure what to do. Any recommendations?
