I need some advise and really value my fellow spineys on SH.
I have had 2x PLIF's (lucky me!) and am post op approx 10 weeks following revision after complications. Well, someone had to get them...any how, heres the scoop.
I am so reactive to movement, activity anything and evrything seem sto flare me off.
Muscle spasm in back, ache, pressure, sharp stabbing pain, boring, leg groin, buttock pain, nerve issues in leg (the usual pins needles, numbness, coldwater running down leg, buring, weight bearing pain)
I had a bad week. :''(
I feel a kinda buzzing thing, vibrating in my back.Bit like tinitus in my back. lol!
The pain I suffer with feels positional, yet after 2 fusions this shouldn't be the case. I have screws and rods and confirmed fusion. I still can't lean forward - killer trigger.
It can switch off/on in a mili second. I have no control and am not aware of what switches it on/off.
This is just my gut instinct feeling.
When they discovered a misplaced hardwear It all made sensebut not any more.
I feel horrible. I want to cry. My pain killers are not working.
Am I missing something Obvious?
(P.S. I just want to point out I have been very unlucky and am not the usual following fusion surgery. I had numerous problems pre-op to resolve)
Thanks in advance.
