My new doctor said his gut feeling is that I may need a spinal fusion in my T-10/11.
I have had Spinal Column Stimulators put in. I have 2 leads and 2 stimulators put in. They are doing nothing for my muscle spasms and pain. The first is on the spine and the other is subcutaneous (like a TENS unit). The new doctor seems to think that I do have instability. I seem to finally understand what they mean by instability i.e. the vertebra are moving around and rubbing against whats left of the disc. I just have 2 questions;
1) Can you please enlighten me as to what they mean by instability? 2) What should I expect if a spinal fusion is done.
Thank you all.
