Hi i had the Dynesys stabilazation to L4 L5 and S1 (6 screws and flexible rods)i am able to do most things now but am still having some discomfort when lying on back, or on left side.(had these problems pre-op), doing certain houswork eg bending down to hoover edges and also pushing a full shopping trolley. I always need a lumber cushion when sitting and driving. I went to my final appointment yesterday with my consultant, exrays were fine, but doc said i had alot of scar tissue over the screw heads on left side. These are very painfull when touched. He reasured me that they will improve with time. I am very frustrated at moment as thought i would be all ok by now. Does any one else have the same feelings? Julia X


  • how post op you are??
    How long since your surgery?

    I also think you are doing really well bending to hoover as you say.
    Your final appt suggests you are a year?

    Not sure why you had the surgery either...but like others here say, once a spiney always a spiney. It may well always be a niggle.

    Take care
