I had a synovial cyst and L3 spinal fusion 11/20/08. Was recovering well until last Tues- one week ago today.
Had a major back spasm, legs buckled, caught my shoe on the kitchen cabinet and broke my back at L3. The fusion seems to have held but i fractured the L3. 911 was called- they flat boarded me- took me in the ambulance. Spent 3 days in hospital in crazy pain. They can not do surgery as my fusion was just 2 months ago. So Im living on 15 percs a day but cut way down today. Ridiculous amount of drugs, right? Ill just suffer. I am in severe pain and have help 24/7. Can you believe this???
