  • Wow that's a deal- not.
    DDD of lumbar spine with sciatica to left hip,leg and foot. L4-L5 posterior disc bulge with prominent facets, L5-S1 prominent facets with a posterior osteocartilaginous bar. Mild bilateral foraminal narrowing c-spine c4-c7 RN
  • Charry:

    The amount of meds you have been put on is crazy! Why don't they do a fusion of L4/5 or at the least a facetectomy to get that pressure off your leg nerves? I went through a spinal fusion a year ago. L5 fracture of pars, both sides, facet atrophy S1. Was broken since 1993 wasn't discovered until 2001, lost feeling in my legs 2007, went to the best surgen in the biz in 2008, and now I am finally healed. I do not know if you live near NYC, but please go see him! He has been rated top doctor in this field for over 15 years. If he can't help you, no one can:EDITED

  • Why would insurance pay $5K for something like that? Sounds like BS to me...

    Nice pitch for your doctor. Another thing you are not supposed to do on here...

    2 Spams in 1 Thread. Very efficient ;-) LOL

  • Actually the spinalpak has some great research behind it. I am actually using 1 right now due to L4 &L5 fusion. I just quit smoking before the surgery but the pak actually gives you a 30%+ chance of a complete and solid fusion. For smokers that is alot as some 15% of smokers will not get a good fusion. Like i said, i have quit but my Dr. still says to use it because of the benefits of a complete and full fusion as opposed to gaps/spaces.
