I am 18 months out from my fusion. I have continue to have pain since my surgery. I knew something was not right and my orthropedic didn't seem interested looking any farther for the cause of pain. After 6 months of PT and SI injections I went to another orthropedic for another opinion.
Myelogram CT showed
1.Spondylolisthesis @ L5 S1 Grade 2
2.Impingement @ L5 nerve root with bone spur
3.Fusion has not healed
Suggestion was a redo and place a interbody fusion and larger laminectomy and removal of the 2 screws.
So now I am looking to find the best person for the surgery. I will even travel out of state. It will be a complicated case.
If anyone has any suggestions please email me @ email@example.com. South Fl spine institute came highly recommended.????? has anyone use this institute?
