Hi everyone i am Sherie and new. I had back surgery in 1995 my disk completley blew out. Well long story short they took the disk out. They did not fuse my back. For 5 yrs it was okay, and then progressivly has gotton worse. I have been living in chronic pain sometimes can't get off the toliet etc. ect.I have no medical insurance and work a very hard job there fore when i get home well needless to say im not very happy.I was wondering if anyone knew why they did not put a replacment disk in my back or fuse it. Has anyone had this happen to them ?

  • :) hi and welcome to the forum! :H we are here to offer you support and answer what questions we can. i can't help you with your exact problem but we do have chronic pain in common. ~X( perhaps it is time to get a current MRI and see a doctor. are you on any medications? if you have no money you may be able to get treatment at a teaching hospitol. check out the Health Insurance forum and look for a "stickey on teaching hospitals". i hope you find relief somewhere. good luck! Jenny :) .
  • I agree with Jenny, a teaching hospital may be your best bet. ADR has only recently become available and is still not perfected. There can be issues with fusion. For some reason your doc must have felt at the time that it was the best thing to do for you. Good luck and keep us posted.
