Has anyone had this procedure before for epidural fibrosis or arachnoiditis? My doctor talked about giving this a try since I have scar tissue on the levels where they operated on (L4-S1). I've been having severe lower back pain and muscle spasms & burning sharp stabbing pains in my leg. Life has not been too good to me lately but I'll keep on fighting.


  • I appreciate that info very much and I hope you recover fully from that post op infection. Is that really true about Singulair? I took that when my asthma was severe long ago. I'm glad to hear the scar tissue is all gone for now. I always had a problem with it, and it was really bad when I had endometriosis. I went through 3 surgeries to remove that tissue and to free up the organs that were bound down. Finally I had a hysterectomy, but I had ongoing problems and they had to dig in again. This time around more scar tissue was took out along with the ovaries. I guess some people are prone to develop scar tissue more than others. It's difficult to walk and I spend most my time laying down. It is reassuring to know that I'm not the only one dealing with this problem. Thanks for your help.
