I glad I found someone else to talk to about my pain. My husband and children and very helpful when they can be but don't always understand.

I tried serveral different things,PT,chriopractor, I had (6) injections since april and (2 )spinal epidurals.

The pain has come back worse each time. I have pain and numbness on right side leg and top of foot,burning pain in left ankle.

My orthopedic surgeon wants to they the Dynesys stablization system.

I have not found much information on it. I would love to here from anyone who's had this done.


  • You sound as if you are traveling the same road that many of us have. There are a few members here that have had that procedure done. Hopefully they will come along and offer you their personal experience. Having friends and family that do not understand ( no matter how hard that they try) is very commmon. It is something that is very hard to understand unless you actually experience it. You may want to click on the Treatment Tab at the top of this page and see if any info is offered there. You can also type the name of the procedure in the search box at the top of this page and may find info there. Good luck and please keep us posted.
