Hi, Well, here I am again posting. 15 months post L3-S1 fusion with iliac bone graft. I just can;'t get past the pain and spasms. By the end of the day, I'm hunched over, can;t straighten my back. Too much spasm. The pain in my lower back has be bewildered. Even with the pain meds and muscle relaxers, it comes right back.
I think I need a stronger pain med but I don't believe this far out from my surgery my doc will give it to me. I thought I'd be walking around and enjoying life. Instead, I have to take pain pills just to do normal daily living tasks. Maybe it;s my age I'm 59. This has been a nightmare. Any thoughts out there from anyone who's had this?
