I was just wondering if anyone here has personal experience with having failed charite artificial discs to their lumbar back?
Also if anyone as personal experience with face joint pain and problems being caused from their charite disc.
My surgery was 13 months ago now and I have had bad lumbar back pain and leg/feet pain and problems for about 6 or 7 months now.
My last xray said something about "sclerosis to my facet joints". None of my previous scans have ever mentioned this before. I now have swelling and paramuscle spasm over my lumbar facet joints and not having had pain or problems from that area before makes me believe I am now showing signs of facet joint problems caused by my charite disc?
I would be very interested to hear from anyones personal experience with this. How did you get diagnosed that the charite caused your facet problem or that it failed etc?
