I am in chronic pain ever since I had a L-4, L-5 fusion with a cage. This fusion was done on my right side only and not on both sides. My surgery was November 2008 and it has now almost been two years. I have never been out of pain since my surgery and it is now getting worse. Had an MRI yesterday and seeing a surgeon next week - but am looking for anyone who has had a similiar surgery and only on one side and to find out how did you deal with the pain or what was the outcome.
