Sense having my L4-L5 fusion Doc said the fusion looks great, But isn't sure why I still have continued back pain.. my pm doc is just calling it a failled fusion. I had a myleogram done about 6 months afer my surgery which about made me pass out, showed normal. So why is it I still have severe low back pain and some leg pain????? I walk for about 20 min at a time 2-3 times a day.. I do all my daily stretches and such I got from my therpist I use a sports ball and everything. but I continue to have low back pain. I can't sit or stand longer than 30-40 min at a time, and I can't go from sitting to standing or standign to sitting.. I need to lay down in a comfy spot and relax for a while for the pain levels to go down, which usualy takes about 3 hours maybe If I'm lucky..
I take 60mg Oxycotin 2x a day 150mg Lyrica 3x a day 450mg welbutrin 2x a day. soemtimes I just don't think meds help, Lyrica is supposed to block the signals to the brain, but I don't think it has ever blocked one for me.
IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE OUT THERE FOR US???????
