I had spinal srenosis and degenerative discs (L2 to S1.) My first surgery April 2005, two titanium cages and rods were installed, 47 stapes later, and almost one year later, the upper cage came loose. March 2006, second surgery to replace upper cage and place new bone to once again attempt a fuse. March 2007, third surgery because the bottom cage came loose. Replaced cage and placed new bone to hopefully fuse the bottom area. October 2007, fuse took, however, fourth surgery needed to open passages because nerves were still being pinched.
January 2009, still have back pain, still have tingling and numbness in feet and toes, no strength in legs, can hardly walk whatsoever. still feels like nerves are being pinched.
Whats a person to do?
