I've had four spinal surgeries in the past - two in my lumber with the final being the ALFI and two in my cervical.I now have prolapses above the last surgery in my lumber which keeps slipping and leaves me bent until it settles again - I've also a prolapse in my thoracic but as I am quite well endowed this does not help this and the pain can be awful and I have another prolapse in my cervical underneath my last fusion which gives me pain down my arm and in between my shoulder blades and to top it all I know have a burning pain on the outside of my left knee.
I've seen a couple of surgeons but no-one has come up with the best option other than total fusion of my spine. Would love to hear from anyone with similar problems and if so what you are doing or have had done to help it or any ideas on how I can deal with this awful pain. I am totally drained. Thanks
