HI and great to be back. I have been gone for awhile delaing with other medical issues.
Every since I have had surgery in Aungust 2007 and 2008 I have had worse problems with my lumbar spine.I lay down for a little bit the left side kills me and when I walk it effects my left leg. I have been getting injections, how long can that last. I am so down about this.
I am dealing with neck nerve damage which is painful and there is nothing to be done about it. This all occured after three neck surgery.So I am getting injections with this as well.
In 2008 they took out partial instramentation out of my lumbar spine because it was causing a great deal of pain. They left the left side in because of the postreror cage it is a spcaer for the disc's anyway it is causing me allot of pain.
I am suppose to go see the specialist here in Oregon next week. I am wondering if I am wasting my time because is there anything they can do to fix this situation? I now it is the medal it seems as if my body struglles with the medal in it. Has anyone been in this situation? I am fristrated and if they can not do anything then I might as well not see the surgeon.
Thanks for any insight you might have.
