Hi all you spiney folk. I just had to vent as Im going down again, for the next round of back Hell. After a fusion L5S1 in the 90's and a spinal cyst(synovial) L4-5 fusion a yr and a half ago, a kyphoplasty in Jan '09 when I spasmed and fell due to pain here I go again. I am terrified! I now have nerve pain in my groin, heading South down to my foot. All my probs were always on left- now this time right sided.
MRI w/ contrast tomo. Now we old timers know when it heads down the leg what that means. My lower backs always tight, I gimp from the nerve damage, hv probs walking and gait and bbalance. You all agree that somethings not right, right? Any feeback I'd greatly appreciate. I just can NOT imagine going into the OR again.
